Boost for Sal­lies’ food­bank stocks

Kapi-Mana News - - COURT REPORT - By KRIS DANDO

Porirua Club’s mem­bers are a gen­er­ous lot.

Through­out June the club col­lected cash and do­na­tions for the Sal­va­tion Army’s food­bank. More than $ 600 was raised, with Pak’nSave pro­vid­ing $300.

For­mer gro­cery buyer and Porirua Club ex­ec­u­tive mem­ber John Rowe then bought gro­ceries. They were pre­sented to Sal­va­tion Army food­bank co-or­di­na­tor El­iz­a­beth Iona last Thurs­day night.

The club’s gen­eral man­ager, Lisa Beighton, said the club looked at ways to en­gage with the com­mu­nity and help­ing the food­bank was some­thing mem­bers felt strongly about.
