The New Zealand Defence Force has a unit called the Defence Equipment Management Organisation (DEMO) located in Trentham. They have a number of staff available to support community and volunteer groups for a half day on Friday 26 November. 

DEMO run an employee volunteer programme and would like to support initiatives here in Upper Hutt—so if your group could benefit from some planting, cleaning, organising or something similar. We’d like to hear from you. 

Your project is eligible if:  

  • It has benefit to the community. 
  • You have someone available to oversee the project on the 26th of November. 
  • You have all the necessary equipment. 

Get in touch with us by 8 November 2021 to register your interest.
