Neighbours, everybody needs good neighbours - which is exactly where the Good Neighbour charity comes to the fore.
And the One New Zealand Warriors chipped in to help the cause after their NRL preseason camp was cancelled this week.
The camp was scheduled for Papamoa on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week but was scratched through the impact of flood-stricken Auckland’s state of emergency.
While the One New Zealand Warriors remained in Auckland to train, the cancellation of the three-day trip had a sizable knock-on effect in the shape of food and supplies ordered to feed the players and staff.
While some of the produce could be stored or frozen, there was still a considerable consignment of foodstuffs which needed a home.
Which is where the local branch of Good Neighbour emerged, resulting in the foodstuffs being distributed to seven different charities today, some of it destined for flood victims in the region.
Standing out on the list were nine trays of eggs (270 in total), gold these days with shops and supermarkets bereft of them.
Also included was 12 litres of milk, 2 litres of cream, 3.5kg of baked beans, 3.5kg of spaghetti, 2.4kg of Weetbix and 2kg of cornflakes.
