A recall was issued, but there are still a few thousand cars NZ-wide that have not been repaired due to peoples' contact details being outdated.

Six brands are affected by the recall: Honda, BMW, Isuzu, Mazda, Nissan and Toyota (including Lexus). Concerned owners can check whether or not their vehicle is involved in the compulsory recall here.

Buy one, give one for Kiwi families in need

Raptor Rubs

Hi Neighbourly members, we all love a bargain, but buying a gift that really gives back seems like a much better way to kick off the holiday season, don’t you think?

Hi Neighbourly members, we all love a bargain, but buying a gift that really gives back seems like a much better way to kick off the holiday season, don’t you think?

We’re not sure who decided that Black Friday was suddenly a ‘thing’ down in our part of the world, so, as us Kiwis tend to do, we thought we’d put our own spin on it instead. One that is much more focused on community over consumerism, and equally about giving as it is about getting.

Curious?

Kicking off today and running through 'til Monday 2 December, we are doing our annual buy-one-give-one campaign.

That means for every Christmas Gift Box or Christmas Cracker set purchased, we’ll also give one to City Missions and food banks across the country to support families in need. Our aim is to give back to an organisation within the community that each of our customers live in.

The best part? There’s no car park congestion, over-crowded shopping malls or #walmartfights involved. You can shop online from the comfort of your own home, with the knowledge that you’re also doing good for fellow Kiwis in their own community.

You could say that our version of Black Friday is in fact a whole lot more colourful, adding brightness to what might otherwise be a fairly bleak Christmas for many families in New Zealand.

Together, we can make Christmas a bright and tasty time for families in need - and that sounds like a pretty good deal, don’t you think?!

Whether you’re buying for an avid foodie, a wannabe masterchef, a time-poor parent, or a student who needs help to step their signature spag bol up a notch, our Christmas Gift sets are guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser, are all gluten-free, with no MSG, and all-natural!

You’ll find more information about Raptor Naturals, our Christmas Gift Boxes and our Christmas Crackers on our website - www.raptornaturals.co.nz

Thanks for your support
