Julia de Ruiter from The Salvation Army NZ

Father's Day is just around the corner and for many Kiwi dads, getting a treat isn't an option due to the family's limited disposable income or being a solo dad. You can make Father's Day go further by donating a Father's Bundle to a Kiwi family for only $19.

Father's Day is just around the corner and for many Kiwi dads, getting a treat isn't an option due to the family's limited disposable income or being a solo dad. You can make Father's Day go further by donating a Father's Bundle to a Kiwi family for only $19.

At this time of year, we want to acknowledge all the dads in New Zealand who work hard to provide for their families - particularly the families who can't make ends meet. So, we created a bundle of goodies that these Kiwi dads will love! The bundle has some chicken, a chunky soup, an apple pie for the family to share, plus a chocolate bar (just for Dad)!

Hi neighbours - the revamp of the National Aquarium of New Zealand is expected to cost $51.3 million before it opens in 2025.

It is said that the council was "redefining the aquarium to make a significant and positive contribution to New Zealand's aquatic environments", but an environmental expert has labelled this as "unwise".

What are your thoughts? Do you think this is a good or unwise investment? What do you think about the impact it could have on the coastline?
