Millie from St Vincent de Paul Society Wellington

Thank you for the support our Vinnies foodbank received over the holiday break. December saw a 121% increase in people accessing food assistance on the previous year - a number that mirrors the increasing hardships our community is facing.

💙 We need your help once again. 💙

The foodbank is running low on the below key items:
🥫 Tinned fish
🥫 Tinned vegetables
🥫 Breakfast spreads – jam, peanut butter
🥫 Breakfast cereals – cornflakes, muesli
🥫 Tinned/cuppa soup
🥫 Two-minute noodles
🥫 Tinned spaghetti
🥫 Sanitary items
🥫 Laundry powder
🥫 Toothbrushes
🥫 Shampoo and conditioner
🥫 Pasta
🥫 Rice

If you can spare and item or two, donations can be dropped off directly to our Newtown Welfare hub or any of our nine Wellington op shops.

WE DESPERATELY NEED PHOTOCOPY PAPER BOX LIDS! 😰

The National Team from SPCA - Wellington Centre

Do you work in an office? Does your workplace have empty photocopy paper box lids lying around?

Our SPCA Wellington Centre has almost completely run out of and we are in DESPERATE need for paper box lids 😰

We use the lids of the photocopy boxes as disposable litter trays for kittens, and in the middle of kitten season, we need them more than ever!

We are so reliant on donations like these from the generous Wellington public and unfortunately, we are completely running out and need your help! 😰

If you're clearing out paper trays from your office or home, we would be SO grateful if you could consider dropping them off at our centre.

We are located at 140 Alexandra Road, Newtown, and it would mean so much to us!

Swan plants desperately needed

Janine from Berhampore

Hi there. My caterpillars are chomping fast and haven’t found a nursery yet that has some spare swan plants. Anyone out there who might have a plant or two to spare? Happy to pay. Can pick up on weekend if not too far from Berhampore. Thanks neighbours! Janine.

Ben Heather Reporter from Dominion Post

Wellington City Council is short on cash and mulling a parking fees hike. Options on the table include night parking charges or expanding the CBD area of high-price parking. Or they could always just increase rates. www.stuff.co.nz...
