Last Week's Meeting - Friday 4th September

Title: Acupuncture - Fact or Fiction?
Speaker: Helen Young


Well done Helen! We learnt a lot from your talk!



Helen gave the members a clear understanding about the pressure points in the human body and how acupuncturists use needles to manipulate these and help their patients to remedy their many ailments such as:

  • Pain
  • Asthma
  • Migraine
  • Eczema
  • and other degenerative diseases.

Helen stressed the importance of a whole food healthy diet and made it clear that this must be corrected first before any remedies can be affected.

Acupuncture was discovered over 5000 years ago in China.

Last Week's Meeting - Friday 28th August

Title: Keeping the 'Positive' in Wellington: Presented by Drug-ARM Wellington
Speaker: Phil King and Maureen MacDonald


The talk left us with some insight as to what we encounter and how our presence makes a positive difference on the streets.



Drug-ARM is a non-denominational Christian response to the growing negative effects of alcohol and drug addiction. 

We have been present and active as a uniformed entity in the Greater Wellington area for the past 18 years.

Drug-ARM has been a consistent mobile presence on the street and we believe currently we are the only charitable agency left committed to engaging the 'street' regulars, 'at risk' youth, students and tourists and general public in situ in the late hours of a weekend.

Visitors: ADG Lionel N., Mary E., Norma P., Lindsay D., Margaret C., Phil King & Maureen MacDonald (Speakers)
Apologies: Bernard W., Bede C., Colin C., Ron H.
