We Say/You Say: How will you be supporting businesses this summer?

Abby Irwin Reporter from Rodney Times

Kia ora neighbours,

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced a $37 million recovery fund for Auckland businesses this morning, which will include 100,000 free vouchers to visit Auckland Council facilities, attractions, and venues.

The goal is to encourage Aucklanders to "rediscover the best of local businesses and visitor attractions" by visiting places like the zoo and museums, or attend summer events organised by community and cultural groups.

What business or attraction would you spend your voucher on this summer? Share your thoughts below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the conversations section of the Rodney Times.

Ashamed to go back to school

Variety

Going back to school without a school uniform or necessary supplies can make a child feel ashamed. Some kids avoid going to school altogether to escape the shame. Even if they go, they are so embarrassed, it knocks their confidence and makes it hard to learn.

You can help a child start the school year with everything they need to be confident and focused on learning. Send them to school with a uniform, shoes, stationery and anything else they need by sponsoring a Kiwi kid with Variety. We’ve been helping Kiwi kids all around New Zealand for 30 years.
