Pub Charity distributes 405 donations amounting to $6.38m

Martin Cheer, CEO of PUB CHARITY announced today “Ronald McDonald House Wellington, Wellington Zoo, West Coast Historical & Mechanical Society, Alzheimer’s NZ, Diabetes NZ, NZ Spinal Trust and NZ Opera each benefit New Zealand communities in their own way and this month each have been awarded a significant donation supporting their great charitable work. Every month, except December, donations are awarded. This brings the financial year to date donations distributed to communities throughout NZ, to 3163 amounting to around $25.9m.”

As a Charitable Trust itself, Pub Charity supports communities all over New Zealand enabling organisations to reach their ambitions and benefit their community they serve. Thanks to our venue operators raising funds through operating our gaming machines, Pub Charity is able to make a huge difference to a wide range of local causes by returning millions of dollars to New Zealand communities.

If you know of a charitable organisation requiring funding assistance to reach their ambitions, get them to apply for a donation by picking up an application form from their local Pub Charity hotel/tavern or download one from www.pubcharity.org.nz. Complete the form and send it, together with the required documents, to Pub Charity, PO Box 27 009, Wellington.
