Charlie Peters is a volunteer at Body Positive, and more often than not is found in the kitchen cooking food for the Friday pot luck lunch or helping others to understand more about their health and how to keep well fed on a budget. With equal apportion, Charlie has been an ambassador for Maori in helping Body Positive to reflect a Maori culture for bi-cultural understanding and inclusiveness for everyone. Charlie also plays a leading role with Tinana Ora, the Maori support group for Body Positive Inc.
Body Positive was delighted to be able to nominate Charlie to the Minister of Health, for the Minister’s Annual Volunteer Awards. It was within the category of ‘Individual within the Maori and Pacific Island’ which he won.
