Melanie Kennerley is pleased to announce the return of its flagship community programme Good in the Hood.

South and east Auckland and Franklin charities and community groups are invited to apply for the latest round of Good in the Hood funding as each Z Energy service station will be giving back $4000 to the local groups who are doing good in their hood.

Z Energy (Z) is pleased to announce the return of its flagship community programme Good in the Hood.

Since the programme began in 2013, Good in the Hood has given away almost $8 million to thousands of local charities and organisations doing great things in their local neighborhoods, right across Aotearoa New Zealand.

Z retailers Wayne and Melanie Kennerley, who operate 17 Z sites across South Auckland, are calling for local charities and community groups to apply for a share of $4000 that will be donated across four selected groups at every Z site across the country.

“This funding from Z allows us to give back to the communities we live and work in, making a real impact in supporting their local initiatives,” Melanie says.

“We’re proudly local, as are the people we employ and our customers. Good in the Hood allows us to play our part in recognising those who are making a significant contribution to the health and well-being of our local community.

“In the past we have been able to support organisations such as our local hospices, food banks, community patrols, Coastguard and so many more.”

On top of the $4000, every Z service station has an additional $1000 to be used by local retailers throughout the year to support other neighbourhood events.

Applications for Good in the Hood are open until 11.59pm on July 31. For more information about Good in the Hood and how to apply visit its website.
