Community Laundry Facilities Set Up Again for Christchurch

February 25, 2011

Fisher & Paykel Appliances sets up community laundry facilities again for Christchurch, NZ

Fisher & Paykel Appliances has set up community laundries in select locations and community centres across Christchurch, similar to the service it established following the September earthquake last year.

Currently we have two sites with laundry facilities available to the public. The plan is to have a number of sites operational at locations around the city. We are working with Civil Defence to identify more locations and will make this information publicly available on our website www.fp.co.nz in a dedicated area on our home page.

Laundry Sites Open
• Hornby - Fisher & Paykel site at 79 Shands Road, Hornby
Open 8.00am – 4.00pm Contact (03) 344 4622
• Kaiapoi -Corner Berswick & Charles Street (situated in a portacom)
Open 8.00am – 4.00pm Contact is Dave 021 995 973


We are currently looking to set up another site at Rolleston and will let people know as soon as this is confirmed. This will be at:
• Rolleston Community Centre, 94 Rolleston Drive Rolleston. Open 8.00am – 4.00pm Contact Ross 027 764 3223.

Not currently operational
Unfortunately due to a lack of water or sewage facilities, the Aranui site at the National Marae, 250 Pagers Rd, which was set up following September’s earthquake, is no longer operational.

We will provide further updates on additional locations as we work with Civil Defence and the Red Cross to identify where the greatest need lies. Information on these sites will be available on the Civil Defence and Red Cross websites, as well as www.fp.co.nz .
