Community Wellbeing North Canterbury Trust is encouraging employers to offer their staff a ‘wellbeing hour’ to do something positive for themselves. This could include more family time, a gym visit, a walk or even an hour of extra sleep! In return for the wellbeing hour, each participating staff member is asked to donate $10 to our Trust.

Donation methods can be either:
  • Internet banking  – print off receipt
  • Our Give a Little Page – receipt emailed by GiveALittle.
  • Bank Deposit – teller receipt

  •   Please use the following as a reference when making a deposit:
  • Reference: Company name
  • Particulars: Name of donors
  • Code: 1hr

  • Use your printed receipt as donation confirmation for your workplace records.
    We will then promote your workplace as a Community Wellbeing Champion on our social media pages, through local media newspapers and radio. To register or for more information, please contact us on (03) 313 0275,
