What could be better on a summer evening, than enjoying a drink and delicious finger foods while the sun sets over Mt Eden, in a beautiful garden, all for a good cause?
What do you do when you reach 90 years of age - Celebrate, of course and in style!
That is exactly what Joan-Mary Longcroft did on achieving her 90th. She is not only a present member of the Friends Committee of The HOPE Foundation but also set up the first committee, back in 2005.
