Orange Sky is immensely proud of our Wellington team who have been awarded the Rising Star Award, thanks to Wellington Airport Regional Community Awards

With 41,000 Kiwis experiencing homelessness on any given night, there is still more work to be done. We are driven by our purpose to create safe and positive environments for friends doing it tough. Our Wellington service is more than the warm showers and clean washing facilities. It is built on the genuine connections built between volunteers and friends. Friends like John, who lost their income and house due to an illness putting him out of work. Volunteers like Nicola, who are passionate about helping the community and understanding the unique voices of our Kiwi friends on the street. 

The Rising Star category stood alongside incredible services in our Wellington community. We want to congratulate all finalists including:

🏆 Edible Earth Hampshire with WELLfed (Porirua)

🏆 Food 4 Thought (Upper Hutt)

🏆 Lower Hutt Muslimah Committee (Hutt City)

🏆 Zero Waste Otaki Zero Waste Ōtaki (Kāpiti)

Each week, Wellington volunteers do incredible work in the community, supporting our friends doing it tough. We are incredibly grateful for the time that they gift us and so proud that they’ve been recognised through this award.
