A free mobile shower and laundry service for homeless people has expanded its efforts in response to rising demand in the pandemic.

Orange Sky launched its second van in Auckland this week.

Operations manager Eddie Uini said the demand for services doubled during the Covid-19 lockdown.

“Before Covid hit our first van was doing nine shifts a week, once we got to level 2 we were doing 17 shifts a week with our first van,” he said.

“That’s pretty much our maximum capacity, and we were still getting emails from places further south, out west and on the North Shore.”

The new van will operate in Manurewa, Papakura, Glen Eden and Auckland CBD.

It will allow Orange Sky to increase its availability from 17 to 25 shifts a week.

Uini said a lot of families have starting using Orange Sky’s services in Manurewa, Papakura and Onehunga.

“If they can save another 20 or 30 dollars at the laundromat, that’s another 20 or 30 dollars for food on the table,” he said.

Orange Sky wants locals to name the new van in honour of a local hero who’s helped make a difference in the community.

Comment below your idea for what the new van should be called.

Good afternoon,

I am a third-year medical student home from Otago for the summer holidays. Due to covid, my after-school care job could not start, and was wondering if anyone needed any child-minding, specifically prior to Christmas. I have previous work in child-minding and thoroughly enjoy spending time with kids as this has encouraged my interest in hopefully being a pediatrician.
I am fully available until Christmas, have access to my own car, full driver's license, first aid certificate, and am fully vaccinated.

Kind Regards,
Shani

Kiwis are now able to download their Covid vaccination certificate, called 'My Vaccine Pass'.

Anyone who is fully vaccinated can request a pass by visiting mycovidrecord.nz or by calling 0800 222 478. The vaccine pass can be downloaded as an image on your phone, added to Apple Wallet or Google Pay, or printed out as a hard copy.

Covid-19 Minister Chris Hipkins has asked people to be patient and request their passes over the next few days, as the website has already seen an overwhelming demand since it was launched this morning.

Passes will not be required to access essential businesses such as schools, supermarkets, or pharmacies, but more details on how they will be implemented are expected to be outlined in the press conference at 1pm today.

What you need to know:

• You can request a vaccine pass at mycovidrecord.nz or by calling 0800 222 478.
• If you don't receive an email with your pass within 24 hours, email the My Covid Record team on help@mycovidrecord.min.health.nz or call 0800 222 478. Check your spam folder first.
• The pass will be required later this year to enter some businesses and venues.
• There are separate passes you can request for domestic use and international travel.

I don’t have the habit of saving my credit card numbers with any online purchase. However, lately , all of a sudden ,I received an e mail from them to say thank you for my order.( I did not buy anything) I checked my credit card; they have deducted $70 from it. I checked again, their email said it was an auto renewal. So I tried to look for their phone number, there is no phone number. I quickly replied to them to ask them to cancel the order, I mentioned I did not sign up for an auto renewal. They ignored my request and sent the parcel out, 24 hours after my complained letter. I wrote to them again and asked for refund but they ignore it . They did not volunteer to cancel the subscription for me but asked me to go thro’ with their 10 steps to unsubscribe the order myself. I found their reply was so cold. I decided to cancel the credit card.
