We are Whakaahuru – The Gentle Singers. We comfort people near the end of life with gentle, soothing songs. We sing by request, at people’s bedsides, at home or in care facilities from Wellington through to Porirua and Hutt Valley.
Our singing offers comfort and relaxation, a connection with community and a feeling of support that extends to family and caregivers. We’re trained to be sensitive to the needs of those present, and to respond accordingly.
We deliver our service without charge. Our singers are all volunteers and we fund our expenses through donations, grants and fundraising events. The Whakaahuru Singers are grateful to Wellington Community Trust and MusicHelps for their generous support
"...I appreciated their soft, beautiful harmonies
and the love that shone through their singing..."
