BP Vouchers for Volunteers

BP Vouchers for Volunteers

BP New Zealand has today launched the ‘BP Vouchers for Volunteers’ programme, inviting applications from volunteer organisations for thousands of BP fuel vouchers.

Managing Director Peter Griffiths said “Every day thousands of volunteers give up their spare time to help others who are less fortunate - whether by delivering them meals on wheels, driving them to doctor’s appointments or even taking terminally ill patients on day outings. That makes volunteers a very important part of the fabric of New Zealand society.”

“BP New Zealand recognises that increasing global fuel prices are having a big impact on volunteers who use vehicles to do their work. We want to do our bit to help out. That’s why BP is donating thousands of fuel vouchers to volunteer organisations that use vehicles to get people to essential services or bring them the provisions they need.” he said.

Registered charities or volunteer organisations that rely on voluntary assistance and use vehicles are eligible to apply. For an application form and full eligibility criteria please visit www.bp.co.nz. Applications close on the 25th of August.

Successful applicants will be advised by mail and in the Sunday Star Times on September 10th.

Mr Griffiths said “this is our way of saying thank you to the many volunteers around the country who work long hours to help others in the community by helping them in a practical way to continue that work.”
