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
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>>
