Four Square Raglan to the rescue with much needed water
The team at Four Square Raglan and Foodstuffs North Island organised a donation of 6,000 litres of bottled drinking water for the seaside town.
Raglan’s water supply was affected after the 7.8 earthquake on Monday morning and continuing aftershocks. After the earthquakes the spring, which supplies Raglan’s water, turned dirty and the water treatment plant had to be closed down and supplies trucked in.
In addition to water tankers coming in from around the North Island, organised by the Waikato District Council, the team at Four Square Raglan and Foodstuffs North Island organised a donation of 6,000 litres of bottled drinking water for the seaside town. Owner-operators Satnam and Harshi Bains were delighted to help. “It’s amazing that even as far away as Raglan we’ve been affected by the quakes in the South Island. The community pulled together and the WDC did a fantastic job of keeping the town supplied with water. We’re pleased we could do our bit. We’re luckier than many others, that’s for sure.”
With the exception of Four Square Kaikoura, which is currently closed, all other stores around the country are open for business serving their communities.
