Rural Women New Zealand teams up with The Warehouse

Calls for help from the Christchurch Women's Refuge and the eastern suburb of Dallington's Community Hub have resulted in Rural Women New Zealand national office successfully teaming up with The Warehouse to provide a donated supply of warm pyjamas, children’s underwear, bed socks and hot water bottles.

Within a day of making a phone call to The Warehouse, Rural Women New Zealand, executive officer Noeline Holt had secured a supply of winter woolies from the Wellington branches of the company, which pooled a trolley load of clothing and hotwater bottles valued at more than $600.

A call was then made to Allied Pickford Moving Company which generously transported the goods down to Christchurch free of charge.

Meanwhile Canterbury based Rural Women New Zealand member, Helen Heddell, coordinated a team of volunteers to deliver lamb roasts to the hard hit areas in the suburbs of Christchurch.

“We have many examples of teamwork from all sectors of New Zealand, with outstanding contributions and ideas from our own membership working with their communities in support of Canterbury”, Noeline Holt said.
