4th Prize

Piotr wins a copy of Nikos Petousis' fascinating biography
 From Athens to Papakura 
which tells the story of a Greek boy, Nikos Petousis, born in 1936 in Athens, Greece, who having lived through both WW2 and the Greek Civil War in his hometown, decided to seek sponsorship from a New Zealander whom his family had helped during the war.  

Nikos carved a successful career for himself in Auckland. When he retired he accepted the position of Honorary Consul for Greece and works hard, continuing to enhance the already strong relationship between the two countries.

One of the events that Nikos recalls with pride, is the farewell to the New Zealand Olympians before the team set off for the Greek Olympic Games in 2004, an event we are happy to have supported from our position on the Organising Committee of the Olympic Games.

For all those interested, you can purchase your own copy of Nikos' great biography from Amazon
