An impressive $3000 worth of pyjamas and blankets have been donated to Kidz First Children’s Hospital by Melanie and Wayne Kennerley, owners of seventeen Z Energy branches across East and South Auckland, including Pukekohe and Waiuku branches.
Nine out of the seventeen branches achieved their targets for the Good in the Hood initiative and received a bonus. The bonus was encouraged to be used in a way that would give back to their local community.
Melanie said, “Jammies in June was the perfect opportunity to give back.” The 171 pairs of pyjamas covered a range of ages from 0 to 18 years, and the 47 blankets ranged from single to queen.
Z Energy are long-time supporters of Middlemore Foundation, donating $8000 to a room in Kidz First Emergency Department upgrade as well as volunteering to wrap Christmas presents. Play Specialist Team Leader Robyn Maria said “We are very grateful for the support and generosity we receive from Mr and Mrs Kennerley and all their staff. Thank you,”
