Over 300 Christmas gifts were donated by Invercargill locals to families spending time in Southland Hospital over the festive season. Donations were made at the New World Windsor supermarket and were collected by New World and Cadbury as part of the nationwide Cadbury Christmas Tour.

Cherie Meulenbroek from Southland Hospital was at the hospital to receive the Christmas donations on behalf of the families and says, “We’re so grateful for the generosity of the Invercargill community, who along with Cadbury and New World are helping make what can be a stressful time, feel a bit more like Christmas.”

Cadbury Country Head James Kane says: “We are delighted to be able to partner with New World to bring the Christmas spirit to families going through a difficult time this festive season. Invercargill has been extremely generous and we would like to thank everyone who donated a gift for creating extra Christmas cheer for the deserving families at Southland Hospital.”

The giving didn’t stop there – New World shoppers were also in for a special treat from Cadbury, as the New World Windsor carpark was transformed into a pop-up winter wonderland with fun, games and chocolate on-hand to get people celebrating and excited ahead Christmas Day.

“It was great to surprise our shoppers with the Cadbury Christmas Truck and inject a bit of fun into their day. It’s a special time of year and any small way we can make our shoppers experience better is great to be a part of. We’re also very thankful to our already generous customers for their gifts and contributions to the Southland Hospital collection,” says Ashley Hunter, Owner, New World Windsor.

Throughout the month of December, Cadbury is travelling the length of the country in its Cadbury Christmas Truck sharing the joy of Christmas with New World shoppers busy preparing for festivities and supporting New World with local hospital Christmas gift collections.
