There's only a few days left to donate to the Countdown Food Rescue Winter Appeal! So far 430 winter bundles have been donated to The Foodbank Project and we'd love to see that number increase to 500!

With chilly days and nights, winter is a really tough time for some of our most vulnerable New Zealanders. Through these colder months, The Salvation Army sees a consistently high demand for food assistance which stretches supplies and resources in their foodbanks across the country.

You can help by donating a Winter Bundle today! www.foodbank.org.nz...

Hey wonderful people, just checking in with those who want to help me clean up Welcome Bay Road tomorrow (Tuesday) and Wednesday!
Sorry, I know this is late notice :(

The area we have covered so far in the photo are highlighted with blue lines. I am sadden to see rubbish already starting to fill that section of the road.

Thanks to Cecily's hard work today ringing around and organising how we are now collecting this rubbish and how we are getting it to the transfer station (without paying a cent!)

I've received bags from Keep Tauranga Beautiful and will need to know how many people will be helping clean to arrange reusable gloves, hi-vis jackets and buckets for future cleans.

Tomorrow I will be at Kaiwha Road heading towards Waitao Road from 12pm. If anyone wants to arrive earlier I am more than happy to come down, please let me know :D

For those coming please bring gloves (reusable if possible) and/or tongs and water. Please wear supportive, closed in footwear, hi-vis jacket or bright clothing and hat/sunglasses.

Many thanks everyone, hope to see some more faces :D
