Playcentre Awareness Week: March 4-10, 2019

The Team from Playcentre Aotearoa

Playcentre Awareness Week, running from 4 – 10 March 2019, is an opportunity for you to come and visit your local Playcentre and see what it is all about. Playcentre nurtures a child’s learning, imagination, and growth. It not only gives your child a chance to grow, but you a chance to grow with your child.

During Playcentre Awareness Week centres around the country throw open their doors so anybody who wants to visit and experience playcentre can. Some centres will be having special events.

If you cannot make a visit during Playcentre Awareness Week, feel welcome to visit any time. New members are always welcome.

With over 420 centres throughout Aotearoa there is one near you.

Good for your child and good for you.

Small businesses in your community need a hand!

SOS Business

Hi neighbours! SOS Business was set up to help local businesses in your community. It means you can buy gift cards from your favourite cafés, restaurants and service providers and then redeem them when they re-open after lockdown.

You can play a special part helping small businesses stay afloat during this time. Spread the word to your friends and family so that we can help as many local businesses as we can.

Thanks for being a great neighbour by being a lifeline for businesses in your community.

PS - in case you were wondering, due to the success of SOS Café, and the number of other service businesses now on the Platform, the team have rebranded to SOS Business – Save Our Small Business!

Tell us about the coronavirus lockdown champions in your community

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

We want to celebrate the unsung heroes who are keeping our country going through lockdown.

Frontline nurse Debra Larsen's life has turned into a "real whirlwind" since the coronavirus outbreak began.

She's been so busy setting up testing centres around the Waikato. and helping them run smoothly that she's barely seen her two teenage daughters.

Do you know a coronavirus lockdown champion who deserves to be recognised? Tell us about them in the comments below.
