If you have a knack for creating a catchy title, then Masterton-based Tekau ma Iwa wants to know.
The covid-19 vaccination clinic that iwi, Kahungunu and Rangitane support is running a competition called ‘Name the Pahi Kahi’.
The competition aims to name their pahi [mini-bus] that will be travelling throughout Wairarapa to do pop-up Hauora [wellness] clinics.
At these pop-up clinics, whanau can get a free nurse assessment, have a korero with one of the clinical staff, get vaccinated, have some kai, and also whakawhanaungatanga [make connections].
Team leader and paramedic Jake Carlson [Ngai Tumapuhia-a-rangi] said, “if you have questions about the vaccination, come down and have a korero”.
And of course, with every competition comes a prize, three in fact.
There’s a first prize of $200; a second prize of $100; and a third prize of $50.
To enter just leave your name on the Tekau ma Iwa Facebook page under the ‘Name the Pahi Kahi’ flyer.
Entries will close on Sunday, October 31 at 5pm.
