A magnificent turnout for a truly superb afternoon held at the stunning venue, Homeland Restaurant.
With the outstanding Ambassador Jim Kayes at the helm the Charity was thrilled to see the 60+ that attended this event.
Jim is a fabulous host, sharing his story and overseeing the program for the day.
Jim warmly and kindly introduced John, as all were captivated by John's journey shared through his latest project, the book "Living without fingerprints".
With raffles to be won, Ben from One Up Rehab on hand to discuss the latest products, it was a thoroughly successful couple of hours.
It is always a pleasure to see everyone meet up, enjoy chatter and connect again between events. With so many familiar faces, it was extremely inviting to see the many new people mixing and mingling.
The charity would like to express how much we appreciate the delights provided for afternoon tea. As the owner of this renowned establishment, Chef Peter Gordon, we were treated to Peter sharing his own burn journey, discussing the restaurant and the many community projects that they are involved with.
It really was the most fitting environment for the event and we wish to thank Peter, Alastair and Petra for their amazing support, professional services and warm welcome.
It must be said, never go pass the Hangi pork, your palate will thank you! :)
Thank you to all those that attended, it was a few hours of inspiration, laughter, culinary pleasure and comradeship.
We look forward to the next Survivor Sunday which will be the Xmas Party.

"Hi, my name is Judy Hohaia, I would like to give a BIG shout OUT to the Burn Support Group and Board, and to all of the beautiful hands that allowed me the opportunity to go Skydiving on 26 March 2023.
I would do it again at 20 thousand feet! It was so unreal to be floating up there.
Thank you again to all the beautiful hands who made it possible."
