Congratulations to Wendy Reynolds!
New Zealand is on a roll; we’re growing and excelling in more areas every day. There are people doing incredible things so The AM Show and Chorus want to help make New Zealand even better.
Through the Chorus Upgrade, one deserving kiwi community received $10,000 to help them be bigger, bolder, better.
Wendy Reynolds teaches the elderly in Marlborough how to use mobile phones and tablets - some of whom are in their 90s and have never touched one before.
"One of my clients was terminally ill and in and out of the hospice," she told us.
"I was taking my iPad and my smartphone to visit his place every week using my personal hotspot so he could video his daughter from his bed she lived in another city.
"The last video call reduced me to tears as they both told each other that they loved each other and said goodbye - what we did not know was that would be last time they would talk. He died suddenly two hours later."
She's going to use the prize money to buy new devices, pay for a training room and better Wi-Fi.
