NEW ZEALAND. The Loop Duty Free has teamed up with New Zealand charity Cure Kids to help share its Joy of Giving campaign message this festive season.

The Loop Duty Free has pledged to match all donations received.

Funds raised will help Cure Kids in its work assisting research into serious health conditions that affect children.

Cure Kids CEO Frances Benge said: “At a time of year when we are all so time poor it is heart warming to see how readily these famous faces volunteered their time to help raise funds and awareness for Cure Kids.

“Many thanks to our friends at The Loop Duty Free for this opportunity.”

The Loop Duty Free Marketing Manager Katie Chubb said she was “overwhelmed” by the generosity she witnessed.

“Having only recently moved to Auckland from Ireland, I have been staggered by the willingness of people, both famous and not, to pitch in and help when it comes to supporting fellow Kiwis,” Chubb said.

“I hope that seeing these famous faces working in store for Cure Kids will encourage not just airport shoppers but all New Zealanders to support the invaluable work carried out by Cure Kids throughout the year.”
