We’re committed to supporting the things that matter locally and to making a positive contribution right across New Zealand. We do this through our Good in the Hood programme. Every year we give away more than $1 million to community projects all over the country. Our local Z stations have some extra funding set aside to support local community initiatives and events throughout the year too. You can find your local Z site using the store locator and get in touch to see if they’re able to support you.
