Big Donation for Child Health from Countdown


Today the Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal presented Northland DHB with a cheque for more than $87,000, following their best campaign since the appeal began in 2007.

This is a welcome donation from the Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal and is thanks to hundreds of contributions from customers to help change the lives of sick Kiwi kids, and means the purchase of much-needed children’s medical equipment.

Since it began in 2007, in total, the Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal has raised $6.92 million nationally.

Hundreds of fundraising events, organised by Countdown team members, suppliers and local district health boards, were held over three months between August and October.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
