Z Energy Helps Epilepsy New Zealand Do ‘Good in the Hood’!

PRESS RELEASE

For immediate release

Z Energy Helps Epilepsy New Zealand Do ‘Good in the Hood’!

On Monday April 22nd, two of Epilepsy New Zealand’s Auckland Central and North Shore based Field Officers, Sasha Clarkson and Bridget Watson, visited Z Greville Road, Albany to receive $510 through the Z Energy ‘Good in the Hood’ community giving scheme.

The support of Z Energy enables Epilepsy New Zealand to continue working alongside people with epilepsy to breakdown social barriers that they come across in their community. It also contributes to improving the everyday lives of people with epilepsy and their families, by helping Epilepsy New Zealand to provide advice, support and community education through their nationwide team of Field Officers.

Epilepsy New Zealand has been in existence for 57 years, working nationwide to provide support and information to people with epilepsy and their families. They also work in the community providing education, often in schools and workplaces where discrimination is at its extreme due to fear about the condition.

Epilepsy is the most common neurological disorder, and while approximately 90,000 New Zealanders have the condition (or 2% of the population), it affects more than 1 in 4 people in New Zealand (that’s just over 1,000,000 people). It does not discriminate and can affect anyone of any age, gender, social standing or intellect. It is a condition that is often stigmatised mainly due to a lack of knowledge.

Through the ‘Good in the Hood’ programme, Z Energy has given $1 million to neighbourhood groups and projects that matter the most to its customers Learn more about Z Energy’s ‘Good in the Hood’ here: http://z.co.nz

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
