A heart of gold could be used to describe Thomas Strickland who has dedicated his mahi to helping whānau across Tāmaki. Whilst on holiday in Rarotonga, Thomas developed a severe illness leaving him in a critical condition. "His whānau and colleagues at Auckland City Hospital pulled out all the stops to get Tom back home to Aotearoa," says Chris Henare (Ngāti Kahu).

Thankfully, Thomas' condition has improved and doctors are optimistic about a full recovery. Whānau now looks toward the costs associated with the ordeal and has created a givealittle page to go towards expenses. Other fundraisers will take place in Te Hiku o Te Ika as Te Kapa Haka o Muriwhenua strive to tautoko one of their pouako.
