2013 Cans4Films Festival – Your community needs you

August 2013

2013 Cans4Films Festival – Your community needs you: head down to your local Network Video Hornby or Papanui store in August and donate a can

This August, Network Video Hornby and Papanui are teaming up with Ronald McDonald House Christchurch to do all they can to collect cans of food to help those in need.

Free stress care… childhood illness… free family support… hospital care… Ronald McDonald House’s work in the community can’t be underestimated. They extend a helping hand to the numerous families that knock on their doors, reaching out for help and support.

During August, Network Video Hornby and Papanui will lend a helping hand by collecting nutritious cans of food from their customers. All cans donated will be passed onto Ronald McDonald House Christchurch to help the families staying there while their children receive the medical treatment that they need to recover.

Together, these two Network Video stores and Ronald McDonald House will shine a light on the need to support these families struggling to cope. Most importantly, assisting these families leaves them to focus on their ill family member.

Helping is simply – to make life a little less stressful for these struggling Kiwis, customers can donate a can of food at your local Network Video store and score a free weekly rental in return. If consumers donate two cans, they’ll receive three free weeklies. Consumers are treated to a great night’s entertainment for free while gaining the added satisfaction that you’ve helped the struggling families staying at Ronald McDonald House.

If customers don’t bring a can in-store with them or aren’t sure about what foods are suitable, they can donate a gold coin instead. This gold coin will then be used to purchase a can of food for someone who really needs it.

Cans4Films proves that making a difference doesn’t have to be expensive – for less than a cup of coffee, you can provide a meal for these families that need our support so that they can focus on their sick family members.

“All of us at Network Hornby and Papanui are proud to be part of the Cans4Films Festival in 2013,” Nigel Maynard, the owner of both Network Papanui and Hornby said.

“We are very proud to be working alongside such a great charity in Ronald McDonald House as we know that they provide great support and relief to families in need."

Gordon Campbell: On How Climate Change Threatens Cricket‘s Future

Well that didn’t last long, did it? Mere days after taking on what he called the “awesome responsibility” of being Prime Minister, Christopher Luxon has started blaming everyone else and complaining that he's inherited “economic vandalism on an unprecedented scale” - which is how most of us would describe his own coalition agreements, 100-Day Plan, and backdated $3 billion handout to landlords...

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
