Locals Helping Locals
The new owners at FreshChoice Mangere Bridge have continued on the FreshChoice commitment to supporting our local communities and have assisted a number of worthwhile organisations over the past few months.
Mangere Bridge owner Marcella Howarth explains “It’s been wonderful getting to know the local groups and organisations we have supported with the FreshChoice Community Fund. We love giving back to our local community and it’s great to know we can make a real difference”.
Over the past four months our Mangere Bridge store has donated to the following organisations:
