Nikau Foundation - Make a Will for Free Week

Nikau Foundation, the community foundation for the Wellington Region, has partnered up with Wellington/Kāpiti law firm Wakefields Lawyers.

Register your interest between 3rd-7th July and Wakefields Lawyers will make or change a simple will for free when you include a donation to your community via Nikau Foundation.

Many people think that gifts in wills are only for the wealthy. Not so. Once you have made provision for your family and friends, it’s easy to leave a small percentage of your estate to a something you are passionate about - whether it is scholarships to young musicians; a donation to a geographic region like Kāpiti; an area of interest like conservation; or to a specific charity like Womens’ Refuge.

You can support any charitable cause through a gift to the Nikau Foundation, Wellington’s community foundation. No gift is too big or too small; your gift keeps giving forever because all donations are pooled and invested. The capital remains intact, and the investment income is used to make distributions annually to charities and community groups across the greater Wellington Region according to your wishes.

For more information, visit www.nikaufoundation.org.nz

Please note that the work on the will can be completed at any time, but you need to register your interest by July 7th.


ENDS

Gordon Campbell: On Labour’s Mishandling Of The Alleged Sexual Assault

The focus of Labour’s alleged sexual assault scandal has now shifted from the party organisation to the Beehive... This is now a crisis of Beehive management and response, not something occurring at a distance within the party organisation.

Presumably, the QC appointed to clarify what happened will eventually shed light on key issues. Such as: on what date prior to the publication of the original Spinoff article did the party hierarchy/PM’s office/PM’s press secretary realise they were dealing with a sexual assault allegation, and what did they do about it at that point?
