Drive For Good
We’re on a Drive for Good and we need your help.
This year it’s one hundred years since Archibalds was established. To celebrate we’re helping accelerate three local charities in their drive for good by giving away $100,000. It’s our way of saying thank you to Christchurch for supporting us for a century. Our team have shortlisted 10 charities who do amazing things for our community. Now it’s over to you to vote for the charity you think should get the gold. The charity with the most votes at the end of February will be gifted $50,000 and the next two receive $25,000 each.
Vote for your favourite.
