From Nights, 9:15 pm on 10 May 2024

Every Friday, we bring you some of the most interesting events and happenings coming up in Aotearoa this weekend.

Four young men are taking a pitstop from kayaking the East Coast of the North Island, from Cape Reinga to Wellington, a journey of over 2,000 kilometres.

Sailing under the banner Paddle for Purpose, the journey for charities Live Ocean and the Mental Health Foundation has taken nearly three months, and they're on the home stretch.

One of the kayakers, Cared Blackham, joins Emile Donovan from their pitstop in Porangahau.
