Myan­mar funds

Central Leader - - News -

Gen­er­ous Mt Roskill res­i­dents opened their wal­lets last month to help raise $219,000 for Save the Chil­dren Myan­mar re­sponse day.

Funds were raised by cus­tomers of Bun­nings stores across New Zealand and Aus­tralia who bought sausages or made do­na­tions.

The fundraiser was held by Bun­nings and Save the Chil­dren for those af­fected by Cy­clone Nar­gis in Myan­mar.

Save the Chil­dren ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor John Bowis is de­lighted by the re­sult.

“It’s in­dica­tive of the en­thu­si­as­tic way in which Bun­nings’ staff and cus­tomers em­braced the event.”
