New Foodbank Project hub launched in the Hawkes Bay

Julia de Ruiter from The Salvation Army NZ

To celebrate World Food Day, we're delighted to share that we've launched a new Foodbank Project hub in the Hawkes Bay!

Stephen and the team at The Salvation Army Napier are grateful to receive donations made through The Foodbank Project. When people come to their foodbank seeking support, they are able to use your donation in food parcels, along with other essential items help get them through the tough times they're facing ❤

Sign up to become a Foodbank Project donor and donate a Hawkes Bay bundle today!

Huge thanks to our incredible partners Countdown Supermarkets and Lucid - we couldn't do this without their support!

Art Deco outfits

Denise from Marewa

Charleston Chic is a local retailer of Art Deco fashion and accessories. In the fashion show tomorrow, Charleston Chic is the second retailer in the parade and as well as Bertie showing gentlemen's fashion, there are three local ladies wearing 1930s outfits that we made ourselves. This will show how diverse and beautiful the 1930s fashion is.

If you are a fan of the vintage look, you will also see Two Lippy Ladies who have a shop in Market Street, right where the show will be.

the weather is supposed to be good tomorrow so here's hoping there is a good turn out.
