I have been volunteering for Bellyful West Auckland since 2011 and took on the role as Branch Coordinator in February 2015.
These days it is common for both parents to work, so it's good to get a bit of extra help at dinner time. Providing a meal can take the pressure off a mum at a busy time of day. My first baby (now grown up) was a real screamer at dinner time and it was a very stressful time of day for me. I had my mum around and she was fantastic but not all families have support like I did.
Bellyful West Auckland covers a large geographical area, so it can be challenging to find volunteers to drive the longer distances. Our volunteers definitely go the extra mile sometimes to help out a family in need.
I am very grateful for our yearly sponsorship from different community organisations who occasionally get involved in Cookathons and look for other ways to help Bellyful thrive.
My paid job is in Office administration working for Ziera Shoes. When you work with shoes you can't help buying just one more pair!
I am married and a busy mum of 3 - all boys. We like going to our family bach in the Coromandel, tackling bush walks together and I enjoy socialising with friends. I think it's so important for kids to see parents do something good for their community.

I am a married mother of two, a girl and a boy, now both at school. I have been involved with Bellyful for over 7 years and seen the amazing growth from two branches to a national organisation. I have always lived in West Auckland, and enjoy a lifestyle block now with many pets and animals. My work history is as an accountant and now I silently run a business with my husband, which has allowed us the freedom to travel, so many more places on the bucket list.
