Promotion benefits charities
As part of the Growing Communities initiative, St John Matamata, Starfish Trust, Matamata Household Budget Advisory Service, Matamata Citizens Advice Bureau, Canteen Waikato and Firth Primary received a portion of $4000.
St John Matamata had a huge response from the Matamata community, which was fitting given that it was St John National Annual Appeal Week.
Customers who bought any Anchor product from New World were given one red token to place in the slot of each charitable organisation of their choice.
Representatives from each organisation thanked New World Matamata for their donation and all agreed every cent counts.
Canteen Waikato regional manager Peti Murray expressed thanks on behalf of the group of recipients.
‘‘Thank you to Matthew and the crew. ‘‘It’s awesome how much you continue to support the community,’’ she said.
New World Matamata owner Matthew Hart said it was a pleasure to help out charitable organisations who do so much for the Matamata community.
Thanks: Another six charitable organisations have benefited from a token promotion run by Anchor, Fonterra and New World Matamata.
