Wellington - Wednesday 17 October 2018 - Spreading the News - Victoria Development Society, New Zealand

"We love the idea of celebrating 17th of October and will be doing so by spreading the word on our social media and to our members via email.  We're also investigating what other organisations are doing around New Zealand to use the day as a platform to campaign on issues such as child poverty - we are keen to promote their wonderful work. 

Thanks again for reaching out,
