What can we say? Chris and Diana are just amazing. They help us navigate numbers with ease. Truly amazing and generous partners. Special thanks to Steven Moe too at Parry Fields Lawyers, The Commuting Book’s guardian angel!

Ministry of Awesome was the seed for this dream, their encouragement and support were essential. WORD Christchurch was a natural partner and UBS is the unconditional friend that is always there to say “you go!”. You can find out lovely coffee mugs at the shop (fundraising initiative)
