All Right? Campaign update: Christmas 2018

Thursday, January 10, 2019   Posted in: Healthy Christchurch Notices By: Administrator With tags: newsletter, wellbeing

Kia ora

It's beginning to look a lot like (a northern hemisphere) Christmas! But is that blue sky outside, trying to sneak through?

Over the last month All Right? has been encouraging Cantabrians to reflect on the moments that make us truly happy. Finding ways to do more of these things makes our lives happier and more memorable. Read on below to check out some moments that really matter to some well known Cantabrians.

The team at All Right? would like to wish you and your whānau a relaxing and fun-filled holiday break. We hope you find time to take a breather and spend time on the things that really matter - whether you are heading away, staying close to home, or working through.

The All Right? team

Ben Scott: Benny's Barbers

"This photo is what my childhood looked like. It’s of my brothers and sisters, hanging out in the old Bedford bus that we lived in while growing up in a motor camp.

A usual day for us would be spent roaming round the motor camp on our bikes and just laughing and having little races.  I still remember this day because that little white bike took my finger nail off about 2 hours later!"



Suli Tuitaupe: Personal Trainer

"Each year I look forward to teaching fitness classes on Christmas Day. It is a time to connect with those in our community who love to workout before their Christmas festivities, or may have no family here in Christchurch, who may be visiting our city, or may not be celebrating Christmas for one reason or another.

The emphasis is on fun, and working out together as a family. There is lots of cheer, connectivity and celebrating, whilst working out."


Leeann Watson: Canterbury Employers’ Chamber of Commerce

"This is time out, away from digital distractions and giving yourself a break by spending time with those you love – the simple things that matter."



Jake Bailey

"This polaroid was taken where I think most kiwis have spent part of their summers growing up - the local school pool. The pic isn’t really much itself, but I remember the day vividly. We were jumping from the roof of those changing room sheds into the pool. Actually, I think this pic is of me trying to figure out if I could make the gap, because we hadn’t tried it before!

I made the gap, and I’m super excited for another Christmas with the same old family this year, with a whole new collection of special memories."


Kimiora Poi: Mainland Tactixs

"This photo is of a special moment in the Summer of 2015/2016. It was taken at a favourite family holiday destination in Tokomaru Bay, which is on the East Coast of the North Island. My immediate family, and two other families have been going here every Summer since I was about 2 years old.

The reason why this moment is so special is because this is one of the things we all spend time together doing while on holiday here in Tokomaru Bay. Along with this, we also go fishing, diving, swimming, jump off the wharf, play touch and cricket, and have bonfires. Tokomaru Bay is a moment that matters to me."


Lianne Dalziel: Christchurch Mayor

"This is a photo of our wedding on 11 November 2000. It was such a glorious day… the weather was beautiful, I was marrying the man of my dreams at one of my favourite locations in the city (Great Hall, Arts Centre).

Rob and I have such fond memories of this day and every time I look at this photo it brings a smile to my face. Look how young we both look!"

Hannah Romano: Health Coach

"Spending time with family and friends is the best mood enhancer. It’s perfect for the soul and good to clear the head given our busy and stressful lives.This is why this photo represents such a special moment.

Luke and I were in the Marlborough Sounds with our baby boy Cooper, in this little bach, with friends who share the same passion for life. Anywhere with family and close friends is special and precious."
