Rescuing penguins – all in a day’s work!

Whilst walking along Tay Street beach, Mount Maunganui on Waitangi Weekend, Peter and Tracy from Chequers Finance came across an injured penguin. They took the wounded bird to the Oropi Native Bird Rescue Haven and were impressed at the busy and dedicated operation being run there.

The Oropi Native Bird Rescue Haven is a charitable trust set up to rehabilitate, injured, sick and orphaned NZ native birds. They rely on donations to keep their bird paradise open.

It was decided to undertake some light fundraising by selling chocolates at Chequers Finance to raise some money for this hard-working organisation. Peter and Tracy recently visited Oropi Native Bird Rescue Haven to present the funds raised from our efforts.
