Recently, Chow:Hill's Auckland and Hamilton studios got together at the Avantidrome in Cambridge for a day of team-building. It was a great day that involved something quite special.
Team Elevate, a company that specialises in 'higher-purpose' team building events, were our facilitators for the day at the Avantidrome in Cambridge, guiding us through a series of fun team challenges. What most of the Chow:Hill team did not know, was that our final challenge - to build a bicycle - was going to involve Fostering Kids.
As we were admiring our finished bikes, in came a group of foster children with their carers. The delight on their faces as they received these Avanti bikes was unforgettable. The kids were filled with joy and gratitude, as for many of them, it was the first time they had received a gift, something new they could call their own.
With such a rewarding end to the day our team left on a high and more aware of the great work that is being done by some very generous kiwi families.
