Helen Sykes and her partner Stuart Gow spent the night in Waitabu to discuss, evaluate and assess the ways that the Friends of Waitabu Marine Park and how their donations could assist get the villager back on their feet.
Helen has been very much appreciated in the past few weeks since Tropical Cyclone Winston came through our village and caused all the damage. She and her partner Stuart Gow set up a Generosity webpage to collect donations from other Friends of Waitabu Marine Park.
