Thank you Wattie's

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.

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

We love seeing Neighbourly members mentioned in the news - and we've seen a few in the last few months. From a Neighbourly group that has united the masses right through to a neighbourhood who rallied to deliver a 250kg piano to two blind sisters - there is a lot of good going on in Neighbourly communities around the country. You can read about them right here in our latest blog post.
