Your summer in Tauranga with Red Frogs
Hi! My name’s Bridgette and I volunteer with Red Frogs!
You may be wondering who we are? Well, here's our story: Red Frogs began in Australia at Schoolies Week in 1997. Often this week is known for excessive use of alcohol and is therefore associated with harmful behaviours. That’s where Red Frogs step in! Red Frogs seek to provide direct relief and a positive peer presence in the midst of their celebrations and by doing this, our hope is that we can help out and minimise the harm that can happen.
Red Frogs launched in New Zealand in 2008. This summer, in the middle of the dreamiest holiday spot, Mount Maunganui, we are so excited to be spending our New Year's armed with our well known and loved Red Frog Lollies - they hit the perfect spot for sweet summer cravings!
Throughout the night, we will be providing different levels of support in a safe and caring environment. Have a look on any of our social media sites to see where we are on New Year’s Eve! If you see any of our teams out and about be sure to give them a cheeky high five – these guys make the perfect mates to have when you’re in need of a walk home at night!
Red Frogs’ top tips for a summer like no other:
- Dont forget your basics - food and water!
Be sure to stay well fed and hydrated throughout your night! Our Red Frog crew is out and about, looking after you and providing drinking water as well as our famous Red Frog Lollies.
- What's your game plan?
We all know things can go missing and stuff goes wrong sometimes so make sure that your crew has a meeting point and time and some cash stashed to get yourself home.
- Never leave a mate behind!
Make sure the whole crew sticks together and goes home as a group at the end of your night.
Look after your mates!
