Donation will ‘go a long way’

After organising a fundraising feature in The Star last week, Allied Press media sales consultant Elliot Phillips was pleased to give $1600 to Presbyterian Support Otago supporter engagement manager Jude McCracken (left) and social work team leader Jollene Warrington yesterday.

"We’ve had a huge increase in demand for the foodbank in the past couple of months," Ms Warrington said. The money would be used to purchase items for the organisation’s foodbank, and would hopefully last until early next year. "It will go a long way." Ms McCracken said they were thankful to the businesses and organisations which supported the feature.

"Every little bit of help is really appreciated," she said.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
