0800 helpline set up for people struggling to get food

Nicola Brennan-Tupara Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hi neighbours,
Waikato people struggling to get food and other necessities during lockdown now have a number to call.

Freephone 0800 800 405 was set up by the Waikato Civil Defence and Emergency Management Group for people struggling to get food, groceries, medication or other household goods and services.

The group is not yet sure how big the need is, and say the 0800 number doesn't replace other Government helplines.

Old Roasting Dish Wanted Thanks

Graeme from Frankton

Hi

Long story , but I am after an old roasting dish or similar , to drain stale fuel out of a classic car . Buckets are too tall ( won't fit under the tank ) , and anything plastic may melt ( petrol does that to some plastics I understand -- I don't want to find out haha ! ) .
It can be a warped one , have burnt stuff , just no holes , happy to pay a couple of $$ and can pick up after hours . Thanks in advance cheers .

Message me or text 0274 939 000 .
