Who are you and what do you do in your day-to-day job?

We are the IT Test team at MAS.

Who did you help today?

Wellington Riding for the Disabled.

Why did you choose them?

To get out there and assist an amazing community organisation.

What did you do?

We planted grasses, shrubs, and trees.

What did you enjoy most?

Learning about this history of WRDA. From their move from Keneperu to Battle Hill and the construction of the new arena. It was clear to see the hard work that had been undertaken to build the new arena and how amazing the WRDA team are.

What did you learn from the experience?

Park Ranger Jobe explained the difference between Manuka and Kanuka and how to remember it.

How can I help?

They are always looking for volunteers and you can find more information on their website.
