Within the group were plenty of guys who were big cricket fans however had never had a chance to attend a game before and they absolutely loved the chance to be a part of the crowd and to support their team….often very loudly!

One of the men staying in our emergency accommodation commented that his days are spent doing the same thing at the same places. Getting out and doing something different not only lifted his mood, he shared that ‘..it made him feel like a normal person in the community’.

Opportunity’s like this allow our whanau to have some fun and engage with their community in a positive way. A huge thank you to our supporters and Canterbury Cricket for your gift of the tickets and making this a reality.

Kiwi Christmas

Regan Hines from Christchurch City Mission

We want to give more than 1000 people a true Kiwi celebration meal on Christmas Day.

And to us that means they should get a slice of pavlova.
With your help it can be done.

If you can spare an uncreamed pavlova to make Christmas special for fellow Cantabrians, please drop it in to our Hereford St… View more

With your help it can be done.

If you can spare an uncreamed pavlova to make Christmas special for fellow Cantabrians, please drop it in to our Hereford St premises.

We are also looking for donations of Christmas mince pies, Christmas cake and cream.

We are open from 9am-4pm Saturday and Sunday this weekend to accept donations, if that helps.

We’d love to see you. Thanks Christchurch!

BROWN PAPER BAG APPEAL IS HERE!

Jayne Mulligan from Christchurch City Mission

How it works: You can find the bags in The Press during the week of the 2nd July, or at your local New World stores. Ask one the New World team where the bags are if you can't spot them! Or pick them up from our reception at Hereford Street.

How it works: You can find the bags in The Press during the week of the 2nd July, or at your local New World stores. Ask one the New World team where the bags are if you can't spot them! Or pick them up from our reception at Hereford Street.
All you have to do is fill it with non-perishable items, such as canned goods, dried pasta, rice and cereals, as well as toiletries and female hygiene items.
Once you've filled your bag, all you have to do is drop it off to either your local New World or to our reception on Hereford Street.
Each bag is helping real people in real need, thank you for your support.

Why we need your help: Last month our Foodbank experienced a 34% increase in the number of food parcels we gave out, compared to the previous year. And June has already been another busy month. We are asking you all to help us look after the families and people of Christchurch that need food support over the next few months.

We are facing a very real shortage of canned goods; staples like spaghetti, baked beans and canned fruit. Packets of pasta, rice, and noodles are in short supply, and so are essentials like sanitary items and toiletries.
