Families trust receives boost

Taranaki Safe Families Trust now has 5000 Fly Buys points at its disposal.

It was awarded the loaded card by popular demand of customers at Toops Wholesale New Plymouth during a promotion run at the same time as the recent Commonwealth Games.

"It's fantastic," Taranaki Safe Families Trust co-ordinator Callum Williamson said.

One of the trust's main messages is anti-family violence.

"Not only are we getting our message out there, but we're getting community support," Williamson said.

Points will most likely be spent on gathering prizes for the trust's family fun days and community events during White Ribbon Day in November.

While Toops warehouses around the country ran similar promotions, each branch could choose which charities customers could vote on.

The competition here was between Taranaki Safe Families Trust and the Taranaki Air Ambulance Trust.

"Throughout the promotion it was pretty tight," customer services warehouse manager Marina Healy said.

Customers who spent more $200 in store were invited to vote for their favoured charity.
