All Right? Campaign update: August 2019

Thursday, August 01, 2019   Posted in: Healthy Christchurch Notices By: Administrator With tags: newsletter, wellbeing, resilience, recovery, campaign

Kia ora. Welcome to August everybody - winter's home straight!

There's been a lot happening 'behind the scenes' at All Right? over the last few weeks. We're very pleased to let you know we have funding for another 12 months.

We've been tasked with supporting wellbeing initiatives at a national level -  as well as sharing our wellbeing kaupapa in Canterbury for another year. We're stoked that we can continue to support wellbeing in Canterbury, and share some of what we've learnt with the rest of the country.

Ultimately, the more people who know how to look after their mental health, the better!

Arohanui,
The All Right? team

Fix, make, build and borrow

We reckon the Tool Lendery is one of Gap Filler's best fillers yet...

You can become a member for free, and for a small fee, borrow all sorts of tools that you don’t own yourself for use at home.

It's located at 178 Cashel Street, Christchurch Central (that's the corner of Cashel and Manchester Streets), and is open Wednesdays (4 to 6pm) and Saturdays (1 to 3pm).

Find out more about the Tool Lendery.

Here are a few of our favourite (Christchurch) things

We gave away some tickets to Meet me at the Dog House - this Saturday night's Christchurch Arts Festival show. The responses we received left us tickled pink!

To win people simply had to tell us what they love about Christchurch and its people. Here's just a small sample of the responses...

  • "Love to see a more diverse culture developing and still beautiful with all its scars" - Myrna.
  • "I love the beauty of our Southern Alps. I love our fantastic rebuilt city. I love our beaches. I love the closeness to holiday spots. I love my lovelies - my family and friends. Overall I adore our Canterbury" - Nicky.
  • "Love how there are so many different environments in one, each a small drive away. Beach, peninsula, urban, forest, silence, crowds, solitude, noise... all here!" - Mo.
  • "Whatever darkness is thrown at us we reply with a nor wester that blows it away. The sun rises again and we embrace another beautiful day in Otautahi" - Jennifer. 
  • "Being loved and accepted the way I am, and able to be myself, without being judged 🙂" - Reto.

Visit the All Right? Facebook page to read all the responses.

What do you love about winter?

Despite the cold, there is a whole lot to love about winter.

Given that we're in the middle of a cold snap (are weather bombs still a thing?) we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to remind you of some of the things Cantabrian's have told us they love about winter.

What's your winter wellbeing warmer?

Poems on Buses is back!

Feeling like Shakespeare? How about writing a sonnet?

Poems on Buses is back for a second year. This year’s theme is ‘What does a healthy living environment mean to you?’

There are great prizes up for grabs, and all winning poems will be displayed on Metro buses.
