Where are you renting?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Trade Me's latest figures show Wellington's median rent has topped $600 for the first time. But if you go further afield it's not much better, with the region sitting at $580, and areas like Upper Hutt, Porirua and Kāpiti Coast seeing huge increases in inquiries. Where are you choosing to rent these days?

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!
