Are you aged between 35 & 69? Have you ever had a hep C test?

Risk factors are not just injecting drugs or having a dodgy tattoos - anyone aged 35-69, as well as those who lived in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Africa or Asia, is at risk.

Grow an extra row


While some Kiwis are enjoying home grown vegies, many are going without vegetables altogether.

This National Gardening Week we’re encouraging gardeners to grow-an-extra-row to share with neighbours, community pantries, food banks and other local food donation agencies.

To help get your extra row underway Yates is lending a helping hand.

Just register online HERE between 1st and 25th October to receive a FREE packet of Yates Vegie Seeds.

Once you’ve grown your vegies to share (or if you have spare now) please visit HERE to find a list of the organisations that would welcome your donation of fresh homegrown vegies.

Why should I update my will?​

Public Trust

Just like times change, so should your will – so it’s important to keep it up to date. ​

You’ve built a life around the things and people that matter most. An up-to-date will is the best way to protect your legacy and share it with the people you love. ​

If you last made a will back in the days of cassette tapes and telethons, it may be time for an update. ​
