A Game of Mahjong
Date: Monday, 20th September 2021
Time: 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Venue: WINGS Office

This is getting quite addictive! We love our Mahjong and we think you should try it too. Join us for a game of strategy and wit, and experience this old traditional game of Mahjong.

Mahjong is a strategy game that originated in China. It's similar to rummy, but it's played with tiles instead of cards. Generally, you play with 4 people. The goal is to form 4 sets or sequences and a pair, creating Mahjong!
Bring your thinking hats :)

WINGS Sausage Sizzle
Sausage Sizzle at the Warehouse was another very successful event. We sold 300 sausages over 4 hours. At the end of the day we smelt like barbecued sausages, had very tired feet but left with big smiles as we had been serenaded by a magnificent guitarist with a magical voice. Oh and we also raised money for WINGS!
-- By Mina ☕
 4 of us attended the SHAMA Hui. We met two amazing young ladies, both migrants into NZ, doing a good job of helping to bring awareness of ‘abuse’, what it is, how to deal with it, where to go for help and how WINGS can help its members if necessary.  It was most interesting to hear about the service. 
SHAMA run courses and have resources online in different languages.

WINGS Monthly Meeting
The Spectacles Ukulele Band


What a fantastic night of music, singing and some spontaneous dancing at the August theme night.
We were privileged to have the full compliment of these very talented ladies led by Jenni Moore , Manager of Daffodil House serving cancer patients in our community. 

We enjoyed an eclectic mix of folk songs, Country and Western, classic pop numbers and a Maori waiata followed by a sumptuous supper prepared by Mina and members.

The raffle raised a considerable sum which was donated to the charity Daffodil House.
