Red Cross Annual Appeal 2020

Amber McArthur from Red Cross - Waikato Service Centre

Our annual street appeal is happening from 16-22 March 2020. It is our biggest fundraiser of the year. It not only helps us to continue the work we do but also raises awareness of the supportive services we provide.

Street collecting is a wonderful and fun way for you to be a part of something bigger. Meet and greet people in your community and encourage them to donate to a great cause. By donating your time, you’re making a real difference in people’s lives. It’s up to you when you want to volunteer - the time commitment is flexible, depending on your availability.

We are currently looking for volunteers that are available on Thursday 19th, Friday 20th and Saturday 21st March 2020. We are also looking for businesses and/or groups that may be able to take a site for a block of time.

Sign up today through the New Zealand Red Cross website by clicking the "Read More" button below this text and your local Red Cross Appeal Coordinator will be in touch.

Thank you for your support.

Join us for lunch and some new ideas

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours, how are you finding life in lockdown? If you're looking for new ways to mix things up at home and in the garden, we can help!

Join us for a virtual lunch from 12.30 on Wednesday (8 April), when NZ House & Garden and NZ Gardener editors Naomi Larkin and Jo McCarroll will be live on Homed to answer your questions, share their expertise and chat about your latest projects.

From repurposing items you already have to create a stylish new interior, to getting a steer on what you can sow and grow in the garden right now, here's your chance to get help and advice from those in the know.

And if you've already finished some home and garden projects during lockdown, don't be shy... show us what you've done. We'd love to see them! Click here and get in early to submit your questions and join in the fun. You can also email photos of your projects to: homed@stuff.co.nz.
