Mrs Diane Brown has contributed to a range of community organisations in the Te Akau district in the Waikato region since the 1970s.
Mrs Brown served 12 years as Secretary of the Te Akau Waingaro Community Complex and has been the Treasurer since 1989. From 1971 to 1979 she was the President of the Te Akau Plunket Society and organised fundraising events, such as balls and dinners, to support the Society’s work. Since 2004 she has served as the President of the Waimai Polo Club and organises the annual Polo Tournament. She has helped organise multiple fundraising events in the community to support those in need. Throughout her 10 years as Secretary of the Te Akau Golf Club, she helped the Club regain financial stability. Numerous other organisations have benefited from Mrs Brown’s voluntary work, including the Te Akau Girl Guides/Brownies group, the Te Akau Play Centre, and the Waingaro Sale Yards Company.
