Heart Award winners celebrated in Christchurch

Nov 10, 2022 | Bellyful News

On Saturday 29 October, we gathered at Miro in Christchurch for our Heart Awards celebration. Our Heart Awards celebrate the mahi aroha of our volunteers.

We have two awards:

  • The Bellyful Enduring Heart Award is for volunteers who have been with Bellyful for more than five years. Celebrating some who have been with us for 10+ years was incredible!
  • The Bellyful Shining Heart Award is awarded to volunteers who have made a special contribution.

Ngā mihi to our fabulous Ambassador Pippa Wetzell (who we also celebrated for 11 years with us!) and Neil Marolia from our sponsor Fidelity Life for presenting the awards, and having a fun night with us! Our Board also accepted an Enduring Heart Award on behalf of our founder Jacqui Ritchie to mark her 13 Bellyful years!

We had a delicious grazing table dinner and a stunning venue, thanks Miro. A huge thank you to our long-running print service Coherent Digital Printing for printing every single Heart Award certificate for us, free of charge. This is not the first time Coherent has supported us like this – the team constantly go over and above for us so we just wanted to let you know how fabulous they are!

Congratulations to all our lovely recipients!
