Fundraising for our injured pup that needs surgery

Sandra from Maungaraki

Hi all, I am currently trying to raise funds for Bubbles, my 5 year old pitbull cross.

During lockdown she injured her leg and after the vet visit last Friday they said she will need surgery which will cost $4000+

Please click the link below if you would like to read more about her injury and if you would like to donate a small amount ❤️🐾

Prescription Pills need returning to 3 monthly pickup..

Sandra from Normandale

Dear Government, WHEN are you going to allow my Doctor prescription pills to go back to 3 monthly collection doses?
On the 3 monthly for 5 sets it costs me $25 for 90 days.
Currently YOU have collection for ONE month is $25 making my once 3 monthly collection $75. Your killing it at this price.
AND while your coming up with answers, why cant regular users of certain pills, reuse our containers and save on plastic containers.?

Travellers will be charged A$3000 for one adult, A$1000 for each additional adult and A$500 per child aged three and over. Children under three will stay free of charge.

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
