Thank you for inviting me back to open your conference this year. I am pleased to be here with New Zealand’s most influential fundraisers and to speak to you as Minister for the Community and Voluntary Sector.
It was wonderful to see such huge numbers of people attending services on Anzac Day this year. I attended and spoke at the Dawn Service in Ashburton and was pleased to see Baring Square full to overflowing with people of all ages. Similarly large crowds also attended the Civic Service in Timaru. It has been quite moving seeing the Fields of Remembrance white crosses in many locations around the electorate.
