Further information:

The Whakaahuru Singers are a group which comforts people near the end of life with soothing songs. Singers are invited to sing in many different situations, from social visits to the last hours of life when the sing is a way of keeping vigil, anointing and softening the energy in the room.

For close bedside singing we send a team of three to four singers. When we sing in communal spaces at rest homes, we sing in groups of eight to ten. We sing all over the greater Wellington area, from Wellington through to Porirua and the Hutt Valley.
