More access for pumping mums?

The team Reporter from Hamilton Press

Waikato mum of two, Sheena Thompson, is calling out shopping centres for not having accessible power sockets or private rooms for pumping mums in parenting facilities.

It's not uncommon for mums to pump breast milk in hot cars, cleaning cupboards, shower stalls or in disabled toilets due to a lack of lactation rooms. Are you a mum who's struggled with this?

Our kinda kindness at AMI

AMI Insurance

When a Christchurch school lost four classrooms to fire, retired AMI Branch Manager Philip Buckingham knew how he could help.

Philip – “ When one of our offices is relocated or refitted as a flexi workspace, there are all sorts of useful items left behind — stationery, file cabinets, chairs, desks, computer monitor arms. 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. On my way home, I went to the school and spoke with the principal, Greg Lewis. We couldn’t have asked for a better principal for the school, he is such a great guy.”
