City mission launches winter appeal Locals are encouraged to think of the Wellington City Mission when they grab their morning coffee this week. The mission is asking people to get behind their Winter Appeal and help ensure people across our region can be healthy and warm this winter. Until Sunday, June 4 locals will have the chance to add a 50 cent donation to their coffee purchase at participating cafes across Wellington, including in Kilbirnie and Newtown. Every 50 cent donation gives locals an entry into a special prize draw to win a coffee every day for a year. The initiative was officially launched at the Wellington Food Show at the weekend. The mission would also have a Brown Paper Bag Collection running next week and will be collecting at Hurricanes vs Chiefs game at Westpac Stadium on Friday, June 9. The donations received during The Winter

Appeal will ensure the Wellington City Mission could continue working with people who are struggling, especially during the cold winter months. They provide families and individuals with food parcels and hot meals, while continuing to offer year-round services such as budgeting advice and in-home social work. “However you choose to get involved, your support will mean so much to the hundreds of families and individuals who will receive help from our programmes and services,” Wellington City Mission Chief executive officer, Michelle Branney said. Last year The Mission provided close to 2,800 food parcels from our Foodbank and over 29,000 meal servings at their Drop-in Centre.  For more information about The Winter Appeal visit

Penguin found dead on waterfront Dog owners are being warned to keep their furry friends on a leash after the death of a little blue penguin last Thursday. The bird was found on the Wellington Waterfront. Wellington City Councillor and Natural Environment portfolio holder, Peter Gilberd, said the incident was “sad and unfortunate”. “It’s a stark reminder of the need to keep all dogs on a leash, especially in our coastal areas. “A lot of people wouldn’t realise that we have little blue penguins roosting right in the middle of Wellington – but it’s a happy fact of life. “Unfortunately most dogs will

naturally see a little blue penguin as prey – and if a dog is off-leash then it’ll kill a penguin in a couple of seconds – before anybody can do anything,” he said. Mr Gilberd said pet owners should use the city’s dog parks to provide off-leash exercise. He said the identity of the dog owner was unknown. “In theory city council or the Department of Conservation could prosecute the owner if they were identified – but I think it is very important for the community to know why dogs should be on leashes – to stop this kind of thing happening in the first place.”
