TIL Freight Partnership leads to more Good in the Hood
A boost in funding from TIL Freight means four charities being supported through Z’s Good in the Hood programme can do more good in Palmerston North this year.
In addition to the $4,000 from Z to be split between groups based on customer voting in May, TIL Freight have offered up an additional $2,000 to the charities being supported at Z Pioneer Highway as part of a commercial customer partnership trial.
TIL are a nationwide transport and Logistics business who work across the majority of markets within New Zealand including rural, primary industry and commercial.
The pilot is at Z Pioneer Highway only, and is a first for Good in the Hood, which has been running since 2013 and supported more than 1,200 groups around New Zealand with over $2 million dollars.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for Z to work with a commercial customer who shares the goal of investing in the community,” says Christine Langdon, Z Community Manager. “We are delighted to have TIL helping us do more Good in the Hood with the groups we’re supporting at Z Pioneer Highway”.
“We are extremely excited at the opportunity to partner with Z in the Good in the Hood programme, we see this as a great opportunity to increase the investment and effect the local community will gain from this already successful programme.
There are a large number of parallels between Z and the TIL Group, being nationwide New Zealand businesses truly invested in making a real difference in the communities we operate being one that stands out to me most.”, says Andy Watt, TIL General Manager Sales and Marketing.
The groups at Z Pioneer Highway who will share in $6,000 are Sweet Louise, Arohanui Hospice Foundation, Child Cancer Foundation and Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter.
These groups will also be up for a chance to share in the $250,000 Supercharger funding being offered this year for up to 22 groups across the country.
