Families in the Warkworth Wellsford community can now have a tribute to their loved ones permanently displayed in Tui House, with ‘The Embrace’ korowai being re-launched as a remembrance project. This adds to the commemorative options we already offer at Hibiscus House and Takapuna.

The stunning Tui House korowai, made from 250 hand-etched stainless-steel feathers, was originally designed to raise funds for the building. About 80 of the feathers were sponsored for $1,000 each and those donors’ names are displayed on an honour board beside the cloak.

A new board will be installed for names of loved ones whose families choose to reserve a feather in their memory. Those who make the $1,000 donation will be invited to gather with friends and whānau once the board has been inscribed. Families involved in the remembrance project will also be invited to Tui House each year for reflection, connection and refreshments.

Please call Tui House on 09 425 9535 to find out more.
