In 2019, Archibalds accelerated ten local charities in their drive for good by giving away $150,000.

You Helped Us Gift $150 Grand

More than 21,000 people voted for a local charity as part of Drive for Good. The three charities chosen by the people of Canterbury are:

  1. The Champion Centre will be gifted $50,000
  2. Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust will be gifted $25,000
  3. Ronald McDonald House South Island will be gifted $25,000

After meeting all the charities and hearing from the Canterbury community we wanted to show our appreciation to all 10 charities. So we gave another $50,000 to share between the remaining seven charities.

We’d like to thank all ten charities for taking part in Drive for Good, but most of all thank you for the amazing things you do for Christchurch. Scroll down to meet the 10 charities.
