Com­pany does its bit

Matamata Chronicle - - Motoring -

Z En­ergy is giv­ing Ki­wis more ways to show their sup­port for the cen­te­nary An­zac Day, with pop­pies avail­able at Z sites around the coun­try through­out poppy week, RSA vol­un­teers col­lect­ing on- site and ‘‘ vir­tual poppy’’ do­na­tions on Z’s Face­book page.

Z ser­vice sta­tions will have pop­pies in-store from Thurs­day, April 17, and cus­tomers can choose to add $1, $2, or $5 to elec­tronic trans­ac­tions, as well as mak­ing cash do­na­tions at the till.

RSA vol­un­teers will also be col­lect­ing at Z ser­vice sta­tions on An­zac Day, April 25. All do­na­tions made at Z’s neigh­bour­hood sites will go back to the lo­cal branches of the RSA.

Z’s Twit­ter and Face­book fol­low­ers can also do­nate a vir­tual poppy be­tween April 17 and April 25, with Z giv­ing $1 for ev­ery poppy do­nated or shared on­line, up to $12,000.

Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Mike Ben­netts said Z sup­ports An­zac Day be­cause of its spe­cial sig­nif­i­cance for all New Zealan­ders, in­clud­ing Z’s cus­tomers, com­mu­ni­ties and staff.

RSA Chief Ex­ec­u­tive David Moger said the sup­port of Z and New Zealan­ders will help the RSA to pro­vide care and wel­fare to those who have served their coun­try.

‘‘The first Poppy Day was held in 1922, and it’s fan­tas­tic to see Kiwi com­mu­ni­ties and or­gan­i­sa­tions con­tin­u­ing to sup­port the RSA and re­mem­ber those who sac­ri­ficed so much for us all,’’ Moger said.
