A new reality for the Children's Ward

A new reality for the Children's Ward
Shining Peak are dedicated to doing good for Taranaki. Their belief that every business should have a social mission at its core led them to develop the 5% project. Every month, Shining Peak partners with a local charity and donates 5% of the revenue from beer sale. Not 5% of profit, but 5% of the revenue.
We partnered with Shining Peak in November last year to be their nominated charity. As it was the lead up to Christmas, Shining Peak wanted to do something to help kids in Taranaki. The TSB Children & Young People Ward at Taranaki Base Hospital was a perfect fit for the money to go to, and we aimed to raise enough to buy a new TV and games console.
Staying in hospital can be particularly traumatic for kids. They should be out with friends, running around and being… kids! Unfortunately many children have to spend extended periods in hospital and miss out on many experiences in life. Not to mention the boredom of being in bed or restricted to the ward.

Shining Peak raised and amazing $3,703.47. This meant we could extend beyond our original goal and provide a much more interactive experience for kids, including VR headsets. Noel Leeming very generously created an amazing package for us with substantial discounts. This means the children in the ward will soon have access to:

  • Panasonic 32" TV 
  • Panasonic 40" TV
  • Google Chromecast 
  • PlayStation 5 Console 
  • PlayStation VR Starter Pack 
  • PlayStation Astro Bot: Rescue Mission VR 
  • Xbox Series Console 
  • Xbox One Minecraft Starter Collection 
  • Xbox Crash Bandicoot 4
  • High Speed HDMI cables
  • Brateck Wall mount 
  • Brateck Versatile & Compact TV Cart  
  • One For All Replacement Remotes for all TVs 
Noel Leeming are also donating their technician’s time to install the equipment on the ward, as well as a selection of extra toys for the kids. A big thank you to all staff at Noel Leeming, especially Hannah Williams and Jacob Cooper who have both been fundamental in the logistics of this campaign.
