Join AMP Capital Shopping Centres In Their Support Of Plunket

“What are your Christmas plans?” It’s the question Kiwis ask and answer dozens of times ahead of December 25, but this year AMP Capital Shopping Centres (AMPCSC) have a very special reason for asking: it’s helping Plunket raise funds through the services shoppers need during the busy festive season, from professional gift wrapping to Christmas tree decorations and photos with Santa. With these activities on the list of all but the most Grinch-like among us, why not support Plunket and enjoy a Kiwi Christmas at the same time? It’s as easy as popping along to your nearest AMP Capital Shopping Centre (AMPCSC).

Participating AMP Capital Shopping Centres (AMPCSC) are The Palms in Christchurch, LynnMall and Botany Town Centre in Auckland and Bayfair Shopping Centre in Tauranga.

Linh Luong, AMPCSC Senior Marketing Manager said “Most Kiwis have dealt with Plunket at some time in their lives, and we see the campaign as a unique opportunity to give something back, in whatever way suits each person – it can be large or small.

“Plunket does a great job looking after New Zealand’s young families, and we wanted to show them our support this Christmas while finding an easy way for our shoppers to make a difference to a worthy Kiwi institution. Fittingly, it will have a special focus on what Christmas means to Kiwis.”

The following activities will take place in each centre during the campaign:

  • Christmas wrapping (special Plunket wrapping paper) and sticky labels – proceeds go to Plunket;

  • Santa photos - $1 from each photo goes to Plunket;

  • At Bayfair Shopping Centre, the sale of decorations will also go toward Plunket.

Ms Luong said she expected shoppers to get behind the campaign. “Christmas is the busiest time of year for most of us, and is always a hectic, fun time at all of our centres, but in the midst of all the shopping frenzy we know Kiwis want to stop for a moment and remember what Christmas is all about – giving to others. We’re looking forward to seeing shoppers back the campaign by enjoying a Kiwi Christmas and supporting Plunket.”

Paul Baigent, Chief Executive Officer of the Royal New Zealand Plunket Society, said “Plunket is excited to be partnering with AMPCSC to raise much-needed funds to provide young families with the advice, information and support they need to give their children the best start in life. The Plunket team is grateful for AMPCSC’s generous contribution and hopes the campaign will be a great success.”

All proceeds raised through fundraising activities in the four centres will help Plunket to provide services for local families including mobile clinics, parenting education programmes and affordable car seat hire.
