Helping all Kiwi Kids thrive

This year we've decided to share the Playcentre aroha to help all Kiwi Kids thrive by raising funds for Variety. Each of our 46 centres will help to raise some funds. Big or small, every bit will make a difference making sure all kids can thrive. Please help us to make a difference by donating here and sharing this message with your friends and family.

A Playcentre Garden for Denise and Ken McKenzie

Denise McKenzie is part of our Playcentre family and is a valued and highly regarded member of the Centre Support Team at Canterbury Playcentre Association.

Sadly, Denise and Ken's property was caught up in the Port Hills fires.   They have worked for 25 years to establish a farm that could give them a self sustaining lifestyle and an income following Ken's recent retirement.  

Their orchard, garden, native trees, paddocks, new shed and fencing were all lost but thanks to the massive efforts of helicopter crews, their house was saved.

A GiveALittle page has been set up for new plants and trees for the McKenzies as a gift from Playcentre whanau nationwide.   Funds raised will be put into an account at Oderings Garden Centre, who have kindly offered to donate extra plants and supplies to Denise and Ken.
