Last chance to save post of­fice

Te Puke Times - - News -

It’s the last chance sa­loon for those want­ing to step up and help keep Te Puke’s Post Shop where it is.

This month, Te Puke Cen­tre Work­ing Group launched a Pledgeme page with the goal of rais­ing $50,000 to be­come the oper­a­tor of postal and bill-pay­ing ser­vices in Te Puke.

The busi­ness would sup­port an in­for­ma­tion and visi­tor cen­tre and would es­tab­lish a pro­fes­sional, neu­tral and cen­tral shared space sup­port­ing the com­mu­nity, vis­i­tors and lo­cal in­dus­tries.

On Tues­day, the group had re­ceived $40,000 worth of pledges.

“We are so close, it’s so ex­cit­ing. We just need a cou­ple of big ones to get us over the line,” says work­ing group chair­woman Karen Sum­mer­hays. “This is now a fi­nal call to ac­tion.” Around 200 peo­ple have al­ready made pledges. The fi­nal date for pledges to be made is De­cem­ber 5 at 5pm.

Go to www.pledgeme.co.nz un­der Save the Te Puke Post Of­fice or go to the Te Puke Times of­fice, Anann Bar, Na­tional MPS’ of­fice or Te Puke Stihl Shop to leave a pledge form.

Pledges will only be called in if the tar­get amount is reached.
