Matamata Chronicle - - News/opinion -

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.
