The story of George and Brenda Hicks

Born in the year of the flu epidemic Brenda and George Hicks grew up in the Great Depression, were young lovers during World War II, and raised their family and a business through the 1950s boom time.

Together and apart these courageous New Zealand couple travelled extensively, including visiting South Africa during the apartheid years. And they gave generously – of both their time and their money – throughout very active lives.

"If you stand up to things sometimes the outcome is much better."

This is the story of their first 96-years, as told to Amanda Nally.
