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.

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)!

Do you think cycleways will help make Queenstown's kids healthier?

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Queenstown News

A $134 million investment in trails could lead to a reduction in the number of overweight children in Queenstown schools, a councillor and GP believes.

The Queenstown Lakes District Council unanimously approved plans for the trails, which include a $40m spend in the first five years on about 32 kilometres of commuter trails.

Councillor Val Miller said it was notable that there were no "fat children" in the area's schools when she started working as a GP in Queenstown in 1984.
