Amy Ridout Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Is he alone? Or are there other rubbish renegades out there? Do you ever take a bag with you and pick up discarded bottles, cans and plastic when you're out and about?

Support a Kiwi dad this Father's Day

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)!

M.E. Awareness NZ is excited to announce a new campaign. And it is a big one!

Our target is supporting every GP in NZ. Our vision is that when people with ME enter a GP’s office, that GP has access to the necessary evidence-based information and training they need to diagnose and help these patients to manage ME effectively.

Dr Richard Medlicott, currently the Medical Director of the Royal NZ College of GP’s, is partnering with M.E. Awareness NZ to take significant strides in this direction.

Richard is urging GP’s to donate funds toward his participation in The Pioneer mountain bike event in December 2019. The funds will go towards evidence-based GP education and material about ME.

We invite you to get behind this campaign too!
