Kia ora neighbours. It’s still easy to get a Covid-19 test or vaccination, even over Labour Weekend.

On Friday, the Government announced the Auckland, Waitematā and Counties Manukau DHBs would need to have vaccinated 90 per cent of their eligible populations before the Auckland region can leave lockdown.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health is asking residents in New Lynn, Bayswater, Rosedale and Redvale to get tested if they are unwell, due to a concerning number of cases in those areas.

We’ve put together a list of all the vaccine and testing centres that are open for all or part of the long Labour Weekend. Click 'read more' for the list.

Kia ora! G here from Team Supergenerous, a Kiwi social enterprise helping to make your donations to charitable organisations go a little bit further.

Did you know that nearly $250 million of donation rebates go unclaimed every year? Imagine the good some of that money could do in our local community? That's why we exist, to make the rebate claiming process easy and help you regift donation rebates to your favourite charities and schools.

All you have to do is sign up and tell us who you've donated to over the past four years. We then gather the receipts, lodge them with the IRD, manage the claims process and regift your rebates to the charitable organisations you care about.

Here's a bit more about us, otherwise we hope you'll join us on our mission to Help Good Go Further!
