A Message from Pub Charity Limited CEO Martin Cheer
After more than eight weeks of lockdown it appears Pub Charity’s partner venues will, from the 21st of May 2020, be able to operate their gaming machines. Over the last 2 months New Zealand has been tested by both a health and an economic crisis. There has been obvious success with one and nothing short of carnage from the other. Our hearts go out to the small business owners that have borne the brunt of the burden of COVD 19 and the heartbreak of their employees who have lost their jobs. We wish you both a speedy recovery.
On the positive we have been able to release the suspended March donations payment round and Pub Charity will be accepting online applications from the 4th of June for a July funding round. However we do expect funds available will continue to be impacted by the current economic conditions so please be patient.
We are far from being over COVID 19 but it’s good to be back. Please appreciate and support your local hospitality businesses. If anyone can put this thing back together its Kiwis.
Good luck and best wishes.
Martin Cheer - Chief Executive
