On the evening of 25th November, at Kiwibank Head Office in Wellington, Tim Davies-Colley, Executive Director of e-Learning Porirua, stepped up to receive a Local Hero Medal in the Kiwibank Wellington Region Local Hero of the Year 2014 Event.
The medal was presented by the Mayor of Wellington, Celia Wade-Brown, and Kiwibank’s CEO Paul Brock.
Tim has worked tirelessly on behalf of the Board of e-Learning Porirua Trust to bring computers in homes and computer skills training to the digitally disadvantaged households and areas of Porirua such as Cannons Creek, Porirua East and Waitangarua. All Local Heroes awarded a regional medal are currently being considered by the national category judging panel for the Kiwibank Local Hero of the Year 2014. The top ten semi-finalists will be announced later in December and we wish Tim all the best.
