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!

Kia ora koutou, I am Tui Lewis and I represent the Hutt City Council on the Whaitua Te Whanganui-a-Tara Committee, set up by the Greater Wellington Regional Council to make recommendations for maintaining and improving our taonga – our fresh and coastal waters.

I am honoured to have the privilege of serving Te Awakarangi and to support the kaitiakitanga of our special environment with the Whaitua Te Whanganui-a-Tara committee. We are looking forward to working with you to maintain and improve the quality of the water in our catchments. Growing population is placing an immense pressure on our waste and stormwater pipes. We need to fix our infrastructure to leave a healthier catchment to our children, and fixing infrastructure is costly. These are big changes, and needs to reflect our communities’ views informed by good evidence and information to find solutions that are fair and equitable.

Come and talk to me about what we can do together. Connect with us to talk about what we can do together. You can reach us at whaitua@gw.govt.nz. To see what we have been doing visit our Facebook page, and to share what you value about our water and your solutions have your say by following the link below.
