AMI, sharing community kindness!

AMI Insurance - Head office

When a stranger’s beagle went missing in thick bush near Wellington, 39-year-old Whanganui carver Zane Hair volunteered to spend more than a week searching in cold and stormy weather, accompanied by his beloved 14-year-old bulldog Zeke.

After nine days, Benny the beagle was found alive and Zane formed a lasting friendship with Benny’s owner, Matt Newman-Hall. “What Zane did is incredible … I find it really amazing that someone was willing to go that far for a complete stranger,” he says.

Thousands of Kiwis given a helping hand

Julia de Ruiter from The Salvation Army NZ

We want to say a big thank you to everyone who supported Colgate-Palmolive's recent appeal! Thanks to the generosity of Colgate- Palmolive and Countdown shoppers, more than 10,000 toiletries and household cleaning items have been donated to Salvation Army foodbanks around the country.

Jono Bell, Territorial Director of The Salvation Army’s Community Ministries says the items are essential to help people stay healthy in the winter period. These include personal and oral hygiene items, along with cleaning products for the home.

Colgate-Palmolive also donated $10,000 to The Salvation Army’s transitional housing programme in Porirua which helps vulnerable mothers and their children with housing and wrap around support.

Want a GREAT night out at THE GREAT DEBATE? Thursday 29th August 2019

Clare from Hataitai

The bustastrophe might be a cruel joke for many, but you can still have the last laugh at one of Wellington’s best-known celebrity debates. Going by past years, the 'wheels on the bus' moot this year will just be the starting point for a free, frank, fast and furious roasting of the bus fiasco. As well as an evening of witty repartee and soaring oratory, there are prizes, nibbles, drinks and musical entertainment with locals The Wooden Box Band, all at The Pines on Wellington’s south coast.

Started 22 years ago by Annette King, The Great Debate is held annually as a fundraiser for Houghton Valley Playcentre, and has achieved a minor notoriety for its ribald take on current events, with prominent figures such as Grant Robertson, Winston Peters sparring. This year Dave Armstrong, Paul Eagle, Georgina Campbell, and a strong line-up of local councillors including Brian Dawson, David Lee and Daran Ponter, will duke it out over the bus route brouhaha.
