Meet the millionaire who became a shoeshine man peddling goodwill and cheer throughout Auckland.

Never in a thousand years did Larry Woods believe he’d become a shoeshine man. In the 1980s, the flamboyant businessman was “made”, a chauffeur-driven millionaire whose extravagant exploits even made tabloid fodder. This is the story of one man’s revelation for change and the pivotal moment that led him there, from a lifestyle of wealthy self-indulgence to becoming an ambassador of goodwill and cheer.
