The Christchurch Aunties is inspired by the fabulous Aunties movement created in Auckland by Jackie Clark in 2012. After involvement with the Auckland network, Heather M thought it was needed here in Christchurch. She reached out to three awesome Christchurch women to help. Sheryl, Heather L, and Sarah joined Heather M in 2017, and The Christchurch Aunties network was born.
Through canny social media messaging and a bit of shmoozing, we've got an amazing network of people of all genders and backgrounds contributing to the Christchurch Aunties.
Our involvement with Christchurch Aunties is unpaid and voluntary, and we ensure it works in conjunction with our families, study, paid employment, and other volunteering.
