the Tainui Kaumaatua Grant

Kia ora. There is Tainui money available for Kaumātua. You have to be over 60 to be eligible for a $500 top up every year. Too bad it’s not a $500K top up just in time for Christmas. Too bad.

Use the $500 to buy a new heater for winter, or to get glasses, or some new teeth, or your bills or something like that. Be creative.

Click here for the link to the application form or give the Tainui office a call. They are in the phone book.

    I wish my nun could have got this grant especially when she was on the poukai rounds. It really was expensive for her the time & effort she put in to make sure all the nannies knew where to meet & what time. Making sure they had enough money for petrol to put in their van. Makes me sad that all this is going on I do not want what my grandparents lived & worked for hard all their lives to be a waste of time!

    Kia Ora Ana, I like your koreo regarding your mum and her charitable efforts of love for her whanau, that is a true christlike principle which is inherent in our culture. May all our mums who are living today, take advantage of this blessing, and use this opportunity to enjoy what our Kaumatuas and Kuis have done for us through this grant. I just want to thank all of those that have made this possible for us today, the ones that have gone ahead, and the present. May God bless their worthy and righteous intentions, as we take the time to care and love one another. Sincerely, Lez

    My whānau and I are on a journey to find our links to Tainui via Koroki-Kahukura. So interesting and what a lot of work.But we are finding links outside of our Te Arawa rohe. Love my Dad’s l;inks.Sadly missed out on connecting with some of them. Hei aha. Time is what I do have so me kaha hoki mātou. Mihi aroha
