Help keep the lights on this winter

Julia de Ruiter from The Salvation Army NZ

Imagine having to sit in the dark on a cold night, wrapped in a blanket for warmth because you couldn’t afford heating or power?

Sadly, this is a reality for many Kiwi families living in poverty at the moment, as they struggle through a cold winter without even the basics to survive. They are often forced to choose between providing food, warmth and shelter for their family, knowing the profound impact that going without even one of these things will have on their health and well-being.

Please support this ‘Lights On’ Winter Appeal and help keep families safe, warm and sheltered this winter.

CHEAP WILLS FOR PENSIONERS!!

Margaret from St Albans

Hello, neighbours

Does anybody know of someone who made their own will, and died without there being any problems with their estate.??
Elderly widow with no assets except
meagre household contents in a charity flat, and only income from National Superannuation, cannot afford $500 to make a will, let alone EPOAs. Her husband's funeral cost $12,500, and the lawyer charged the same for estate administration!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated to ease her anxiety. There must be many other people out there with yhe same worries. Please help with information. Thank you.
