2017 is coming to a close!

It’s been another busy year for the team at Tūtaki Youth Inc. and the Lions Den Gym & Fitness Centre.

Thank you to all those that have supported us throughout the year – young people, families, funders, gym members, volunteers, other community organisations, service providers, businesses and the individuals that have become our champions.

We are excited about what lies ahead in 2018. It will be another year of providing for our community with some innovation, progress and collaboration thrown in there too!

As so many of us are at this time of year, we are tired! We are going to have a well-deserved break over Christmas and New Year so we can come back energised and ready to get into another year.


Our last day open is Thursday 21 December. We re-open on Monday 15 January.
