BP Vouchers for Volunteers

BP New Zealand has today announced the successful applicants of the ‘BP Vouchers for Volunteers’ programme.

The programme launched on August 31st, invited applications from volunteer organisations for thousands of BP fuel vouchers. Registered charities or volunteer organisations that rely on voluntary assistance and use vehicles were eligible to apply.

Managing Director Peter Griffiths said ``Every day thousands of volunteers give up their spare time to help others who are less fortunate. BP New Zealand recognises that increasing global fuel prices are having a big impact on volunteers who use vehicles to do their work.

``We wanted to do our bit to help and ensure volunteers can continue their good work in the community.’’

``BP received more than 2,000 applications from around the country. The number of people giving so generously of their own time and money for all these amazing organizations was overwhelming.’’

``We are pleased to announce that 400 voluntary organizations will receive BP fuel vouchers as part of the BP Vouchers for Volunteers programme. This is more than a 25% increase on the number of organizations that received vouchers in 2007.

``The organizations are spread right throughout New Zealand and are performing a wide variety of functions in their community.’’

Mr Griffiths said Vouchers for Volunteers is BP’s way of saying thank you to the many volunteers around the country who work long hours to help others in the community.

Successful applicants have been advised by email.
