Plunket has a wonderful dedicated family of partners who
support our everyday work within communities across New
Zealand – and when extraordinary events like November’s
earthquakes occur, they’re also the first to put their
hands up to help.
Huggies, Wattie’s, Dettol and Colgate rallied together to
provide much needed supplies of nappies, baby food, and
cleaning products (including hand sanitizer and wipes, and
tooth paste and brushes) for quake affected families in
Kaikoura and North Canterbury. Pregnancy & Parenting Manager Linda Hill led the
coordination and distribution of these support packs
(‘Hugs in a Bag’) alongside her Plunket Canterbury staff
Plunket has today launched an interview series that reveals
the challenges and rewards of life as a Plunket nurse. The Making a Difference series is a feature of Plunket’s
1000 Days to Raise a Bundle[http://raiseabundle. org.
As the work year ends and the holidays begin, Plunket is
offering parents and caregivers some practical tips for
keeping safe this summer. “All children deserve the best protection they can get,
and mums and dads deserve a relaxing break,” says Plunket
National Advisor Child Safety Sue Campbell. “When planning
ahead for summer fun, include ways of protecting children
from unsafe situations.
Plunket’s Raise a Bundle (RAB) fundraising campaign has
provided Plunket partners with a platform to engage with
their audiences. It has created an environment where
partners can profile their relationship with Plunket, as
well as help us to raise funds to support our community
services. BestStart is one of these valued Plunket partners, and we
are looking forward to what lies ahead in 2017.
