Countdown Sponsorship
21 Dec 2016

Kia Ora everyone,

As you may already know, we unfortunately had to cancel our White Ribbon Relay event today due to the weather. However, you may have noticed that Countdown have made changes to their policies on how they deal with family violence as employees. They kindly donated $500 to Taranaki Safe Families Trust today in support of family violence prevention and awareness.
