The awesome Tauranga Curtain Bank is currently running low on curtains. If you have any preloved curtains lying around that you don't need anymore, they can give them a new lease on life to help keep a local family with children warm this winter.

The Tauranga Curtain Bank is a volunteer organisation who line & prepare preloved curtains which are re-hung in homes of vulnerable families across the Bay of Plenty.

✅ Short curtains
✅ Long curtains
✅ Worn curtains
✅ Like-new curtains

(Not needing blinds, tracks or net curtains at this time).

Curtains donations can be dropped off at the Tauranga Curtain Bank:
The Hillier Centre
31 Gloucester Road, Mount Maunganui.

Opening hours:
Monday 8:30am–4:30pm
Tuesday 8:30am–4:30pm
Wednesday 8:30am–4:30pm
Thursday 8:30am–4:30pm
Friday 8:30am–4:30pm
Saturday Closed

Many thanks :)

Is your broadband bill about to increase? Don't throw money away.

NZ Compare

Spark have recently announced a price increase of $3 - $5 a month for new and existing broadband customers and other providers seem likely to follow suit.

Information collated by our research team has found that tens of thousands of Kiwis are still missing out on hundreds of dollars of savings each year on their broadband bill, because they are failing to shop around for cheaper broadband plans.

We estimate that over 500,000 households would be able to pay less for their broadband each month but many consumers are unaware of the fact that they could be making these savings and people often don’t know where to start when looking for a change in broadband plan or provider.

This is where NZ Compare can help. Our websites are simple to use and if you need more help, our friendly, Auckland based, customer support centre can advise on the most suitable broadband plan for your needs and help talk you through the switch. With unlimited fibre broadband plans available for less than $60 a month why would you pay more?

Find out more at NZ Compare or call the team on 0508 226672

CORRECTION: This post has been amended to clarify that the price of fibre and copper broadband internet services will increase, and that the increase is between $3 and $5 a month, not only $5 a month on fibre broadband plans as previously posted. (Amended at 10.31am, June 23, 2022)
