South Canterbury

United Way (NZ) would like to thank The Tindall Foundation and regional payroll givers contributing to the United Way Community Funding in South Canterbury.  Through this collective fund we have financially supported frontline charities who are working hard for the South Canterbury community. 

We would like to thank our Regional Ambassador Liz Shea for her ongoing commitment to United Way in South Canterbury. Liz is featured in this photo with Teresa Moore (UWNZ CEO - centre) and Rosie Oliver (UWNZ Regional Volunteer - right)
