An exciting opportunity was presented to Family Works to partner with STIHL and engage in a community initiative as a team building session during their corporate conference held in Dunedin in February.
This was an exercise where teams were required to work together to solve puzzles to get bike parts, so they could build a brand new bike within a given time frame.
These brand new bikes along with helmets were gifted to Family Works children whose families may be facing some challenges.
Seventeen enthusiastic and excited children, aged between 7 and 12 years, were invited to take part and spent an enjoyable times doing puzzles and sharing afternoon tea before being presented with a brand new bike and helmet.
This was kept a surprise from the children and the bike builders and was a very emotional exchange for everyone involved.
Thank you to STIHL, and the conference team from DKCM Ltd, for thinking of us.
