Sharp Auckland - Volunteering at Ambury Park Centre!

Sharp New Zealand launched an Employee Volunteer Programme this year and are committed to offering all our staff the opportunity to get involved in local volunteering initiatives. Be sure to stay up to date with Sharp by following us on social media. 

On Friday 17th June 2022, Sharp's Auckland branch assisted with the daily jobs at Ambury Park Centre. 

First on the to-do list was tackling the 'poo-pile', which tends to grow quite large with so many horses on site. Next on the list was to paint and spruce up Ambury Park Centre's new sensory track. Our team of volunteers got stuck right in and no challenge was too big (or stinky). 

Thanks to Deborah, Barbara and the rest of the staff at Ambury Park Centre, our volunteers got to learn about how animal therapy is so crucial in providing support and relief to people with disabilities.  

To offer an alternative approach to mainstream education that often times fails to recognise the challenges faced by those with special needs in New Zealand.
