Bayleys Bring What You Can

The demand for food parcels is at an all-time high, especially during the winter months. Cantabrian's - in increasing numbers - don’t have enough food and are forced to seek support. Last year, the Christchurch City Mission Foodbank provided the equivalent of over 750,000 meals, and the need continues to grow. A little can make a big difference.

You can contribute by donating:

• Breakfast Cereals

• Tinned Vege and tomatoes

• Rice

• Pasta

• Tinned Tuna

• Spaghetti and Baked Beans

• Biscuits

• Crackers

• Muesli Bars

• Instant Noodles

• Meat

Surfing for Farmers

National Sponsor

Bayleys Canterbury Country actively participates in the broader farming community by encouraging farmers to take a break from their farms and enjoy some time in the waves. Surfing for Farmers is an initiative that helps improve mental health and wellbeing in New Zealand rural communities.

During the summer season, farmers across the region gather at Sumner, Gore Bay and Hickory Bay to enjoy the surf, a chat and a barbecue. Our team in Timaru extends their support to farming communities by venturing into South Otago and attend the event in Kakanui Bay.

“For farmers, stepping back from the job can be especially hard. Surfing is a way to disconnect from this high pressure environment.”

Bayleys Plate Up for a Purpose

Everyone has the right to a good start

Bayleys Plate Up for a Purpose raises funds for the Christchurch City Mission’s Back to School Programme.

The programme helps struggling families meet school costs for uniforms, shoes, and stationery. We want every child in Canterbury to have the tools they need to go to school with confidence and get the best possible start in life.

Bayleys Plate Up for a Purpose has underpinned the Christchurch City Mission’s Back to School Programme since 2019. Our goal is to ensure that every child in Canterbury has the necessary tools to attend school with confidence and receive the best possible start in life.

“Our Back To School Programme helps hundreds of Christchurch children get to school with the right clothes and resources they otherwise wouldn’t have. Bayleys Plate Up for a Purpose is the major funder of this work and we couldn’t be happier to have Bayleys Canterbury working alongside us.”

Christchurch City Mission Foodbank

A small gesture can make a world of difference

We help fill the Christchurch City Mission’s foodbanks twice a year. The first foodbank drive runs in June, ahead of the cold winter months, and involves each Bayleys office operating as a collection point, From mid-November to just before Christmas, we ask for food donations so that families can celebrate over the festive season.

We also involve the Crusaders and Matatū teams with a specific game day activation during their match season, called “Catch A Can”, which also donates cans to the foodbank.

“The Christchurch City Mission is extremely grateful to Bayleys Canterbury for their ongoing support. A foodbank needs a constant supply of food, so this welcome donation of food items will help us continue to provide this essential service during this time of increasing demand.”

Corinne Haines, CEO - City Missioner, Christchurch City Mission
