The following comes from Jo Robertson:
Recently my second son was graduating from university in Dunedin. I wanted to attend with my three other children to celebrate with him. However, I live in Hamilton and was concerned about the expense of travelling there and accommodation costs for us all.
Wonderfully, the trip was made possible through the generosity and kindness of various friends who, among other things, lent us their car and offered us places to stay along the way. We also received other forms of encouragement and support. Each person’s contribution helped create a special family time – for which we are all extremely grateful.
