Plunket’s mission is to help families and whānau to make the best choices for the first 1000 days of their child’s life. Everything they do is about improving the health, safety and wellbeing of all tamariki, and the adults they’ll become.
For 3 weeks in June (from 10th – 30th June) The Hits will be throwing their support behind Plunket.
There will be heaps of activity across the 3 weeks as the campaign gets going, where you can make a donation, get involved with our local ‘cheese-scone-a-thon’ or cheese rolls competition, blue week, there’ll be lots of awesome coverage and activities happening on air with The Hits!
Plunket touches the lives of nearly 90% of all New Zealand’s babies, along with their families and whānau. As a charity, they can’t do it alone.
This campaign is your chance to help all New Zealand’s children get the care they need and the lives they deserve
Here's what's happening ...
🧀 GETTING CHEESY 🧀 (10-16 June)
