Thank you thank you, thank you!

I loved having your wonderful team with us on Saturday.  I think you are superb, and people kept coming up to me saying how wonderful you were! Organised, incredibly friendly and helpful and wonderful food – your hamburgers should be in a competition – can’t be beaten!

Ngati Ruanui Healthcare

“The Hawera Rapid Relief Team have been outstanding. Carl has been supportive of our cause and went above and beyond for our operation. We were blown away with the generous donation of supplies. Without this support, our operation would have struggled to reach the 50 disadvantaged children that we did. We hope to have the privilege of working with the Rapid Relief team again.”

Testimonial: Terry Long

Tag Oil Tough Kid

“Sport Taranaki are extremely grateful to the Rapid Relief Team for supporting our recent Tag Oil Tough Kid Event. They were compassionate, organised, great to deal with and provided healthy food options to the 1800 students aged between 9-13, plus the 200 plus teachers and volunteers. Not only did they meet expectations but they went above and beyond the call of duty to support a community event aimed at challenging children, encouraging teamwork and getting active.”

“What a magnificent evening – made all the better by the absolutely wonderful team once again at RRT. The food was sensational, your ability to make your way through a crowd with ease and grace, and your total support of us as a Charity working so hard to support families with life threatening illness. We are so humbled and grateful to you.”

Testimonial: Debbie Bell

“The Rapid Relief Team were a real pleasure to work with. All staff and volunteers felt supremely nourished and cared for by RRT. There wasn’t a moment when the RRT team didn’t notice a need and rise to the occasion to meet it. Aroha tino nui ki a koutou”

“This year is the 3rd time the local RRT team has helped us at our event, they are outstanding! They are extremely organised and professional, and particularly observe every aspect of their work there in order to make improvements each year. Their support has made our job so much easier, they not only provide their equipment but in most cases the vast majority of the food items. Their willingness to roll up sleeves and work hard for our community is a huge testament to the character of your organisation. To say we are happy with our relationship is a huge understatement, we hope this will continue for many years to come!”

Southern Stars

Once again on behalf of Southern Stars Charitable Trust, I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to RRT, yourselves, and your team for the great service you provided at Kids Big Day Out on Saturday. This was a great help to us on the day, and contributed significantly to the success of this annual event. As you saw, the families turned out as expected, and it is great to be able to provide this service to the special-needs and disadvantaged children of Auckland. We welcome your support, and hope to work with RRT at next year’s Kids Big Day Out.
