In neighbourhoods across New Zealand, kids are looking forward to a Christmas that may not happen.

Forced to choose between food or bills, hard-working parents like Melody worry whether they’ll be able to provide even the simplest Christmas meal for their children.

“I’ll only eat dinner 2-3 times a week so that the children have enough food. This is very stressful… a lot of crying and minimal sleep.” 

Food insecurity is the everyday reality for 98.8% of the families Variety helps.

Please donate today to provide grocery support for families like Melody’s this Christmas.

Merry Christmas and Electorate Office Festive hours

Louise Upston from Louise Upston MP

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is yet again upon us. It feels like not so long ago that we celebrated the start of 2021.

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is yet again upon us. It feels like not so long ago that we celebrated the start of 2021.

The beginning of the year was full of activities, including community engagement to gather our community’s priorities and then Delta came along and threw a curveball.

However, I’m so pleased that we pulled through. While there have been many challenges, there have also been opportunities to gain from lessons learnt.  Even though Taupō moved straight into red under the traffic light system, I’m proud of our work together to help families and businesses understand the various alert levels and traffic light rules.

I look forward to a break with my family and a reset in preparation for a busy next year. This includes a constituent clinic in February and Friendly Forum in March, details at www.louiseupston.co.nz....

My Taupō Electorate Office will physically close for the Christmas and New Year break on 24 December 2021. We will virtually be back on board on 5 January 2022 and contactable by phone and email until the office physically reopens again on 17 January 2022.

Phone and email messages will be cleared while the office is closed. Anyone needing assistance can get in touch by email upston.taupo@parliament.govt.nz or 07 376 5563

My team and I would like to wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
