➜ organise packing up of first aid kits and ensure any company work vehicles first aid kits are topped up,

See below for a description of what we are looking for in a volunteer.

As Te Awa Pounamu is still starting up, YOU decide how much time you can commit each week; there is no expectation for one volunteer to take on the entire workload. Do you know someone else who would be a good fit for this role? Maybe you can job-share.
