For years now, we have gathered it all up and donated it to schools; initially those hit particularly hard by the Christchurch earthquakes. It’s hard to explain, but it’s just in our DNA at AMI to help people. After the Russley School fire, there was an urgent need to get the kids some stationery.

Hi dear neighbours
Just a gentle reminder leading into warmer days that dogs left in cars need a decent airflow... inside of cars heat up really really quickly and leaving an inch gap in one or two windows is NOT enough air for them in the heat. I’ve seen and heard two dogs this morning stressed out in cars.. one in the Greenhithe school car park and one at the shops... so please please on behalf of our fur babies... take your valuables and open those windows up! Cheers
