Event Details





Leighton Brown spent six intense weeks waking up a 5.30am, showering in a minute, and being told what to do every minute of everyday.

Brown, who lives in Havelock North, has recently graduated from the Limited Service Volunteer course, a military style course run by the Defence Force and Ministry of Social Development, aimed at improving the lives of young people in New Zealand.

He said the experience changed his life.

Brown said he had started going down a bad path after finishing high school.
