Margaret Farry honoured with an MNZM - 9th Jun 2021

We are so proud of Margaret Farry who has been honoured with an MNZM for services to the fashion industry and charitable fundraising. Margaret established and operated Vanity Walk, an iconic business which affected the lives of thousands of people, as well as the fashion industry in Dunedin, Auckland and beyond. In addition, Margaret used her business, her personality and standing, to raise money for various charities over a period of fifty years. Being awarded a Royal Honour, Member of the NZ Order of Merit, is a much deserved and befitting recognition for a life well lived in the services of others.

To me Margaret’s life is synonymous with the following passage:

Service is the virtue that distinguished the great of all
times and which they will be remembered by. It places a
mark of nobility upon its disciples. It is the dividing line
which separates the two great groups of the world - those
who help and those who hinder, those who lift and those
who lean, those who contribute and those who only
consume. How much better it is to give than receive.
Service in any form is comely and beautiful. To give
encouragement, to impart sympathy, to show interest, to
banish fear, to build self-confidence and awaken hope in
the hearts of others, in short - to love them and to show it
- is to render the most precious service.
