Thank you Wattie's

Julia de Ruiter from The Salvation Army NZ

We want to say a heartfelt thank you to Wattie’s NZ and the 150 schools who took part in this year's Cans for Good campaign. Thanks to the incredible effort of students, teachers and whānau, over 30,000 cans were collected and will make a huge difference to Salvation Army foodbanks around Aotearoa.

Wattie’s generously donated a further 25,000 cans taking the total number collected to over 56,000 cans.

Countdown will offer low-sensory quiet hours in its stores nationwide. These hours are intended to help families with children who are sensitive to surroundings, particularly those with autism.

Will this benefit your family? Should it be rolled out across other supermarkets?
