We miss you all!! We hope you are doing well and thank you for all your messages, checking in every now and then about our reopening, expressing your eagerness to be back at the Loft and offering to help.

As you know, we are a not for profit center, run entirely on volunteer energy. All our programs aim at holistic well-being. The Loft is unique in that it caters to everyone’s needs at all levels. Our only aim is to benefit you and society. Thus, not being able to open our doors and see amazing people like you in these past 2 months has been painful for us.

Unlike businesses who have had assistance from the government, because we rely on volunteers, we have received no government support through the pandemic. You can appreciate that being in central Auckland, where we want and need to be, comes at a significant cost. Because of the financial impact from not being able to open we have had to make some really tough decisions, which even included potentially closing the Loft. Fortunately, we have had friends and well-wishers come forward to help. We are indebted to you for your kindness.

But we are not completely 'out of the woods' financially. We need your support to get through this rough patch so The Loft can once again touch the hearts of many more people, just as it did yours, with an uplifting atmosphere, nourishing food, calming therapeutic yoga and meditation and heartwarming friendships.

In a world where most people are trying to make ends meet, many people feel they can’t contribute even if they want to. You may think that giving just a tiny amount won’t be sufficient or worthwhile. Nothing could be further from the truth!

If every well-wisher and supporter gives what they can, then this can become a substantial amount and help us to get back on our feet and make people lives better! And you will have made this possible as part of a community team effort. Many small donations add up to something great!

Please help by donating any little bit you can, we accept it open-heartedly with utmost gratitude.

Thank you so much for your ongoing support.
