Amazing response as Thunderbirds are Go!

Amazing response as Thunderbirds are Go!

Thunderbird mania swept the country as Meningitis Trust Thunderbirds badges launched out of The Warehouse stores throughout the country as fans flocked to collect the 5 rescue vehicles from the recent movie.

With the support of The Warehouse an amazing $55,000 has been raised for the Meningitis Trust through the sale of over 27,500 badges in The Warehouse stores across New Zealand in October for a two week period.

General Manager, of the Meningitis Trust, Fiona Colbert is thrilled with this result and has said “The interest in these badges has been overwhelming. The funds raised through this campaign will enable us to extend the reach and range of the support we provide. We will also be able to begin awarding financial grants to sufferers, allowing us to offer financial as well as emotional support to help people rebuild their lives after meningococcal disease”.

For those of you who may have missed out from The Warehouse the great news is that these exclusive Thunderbirds pin badges are still available and can be purchased at $2 each by contacting the Meningitis Trust on 09 428 0828.

So don’t miss out, show your support for the excellent work of the Meningitis Trust and remember, Fast Action Saves Lives!
