Supporting our Community

We are proud to support our local community.  


  Mitre 10 MEGA Community Christmas Gift Donations

Every year at Christmas time we donate toys to a local charity. This is just one way that Mitre 10 MEGA Timaru gives back to the community.

The toys range from swing sets, slides, paddling pools to small games to keep kids entertained over the holiday period. For some of the recipients, these are the only christmas gifts they will recieve so we make sure there is a great variety for these deserving children every year.


Here's a shed.  Just an example of one eh.

Safer School Trips

Mitre 10 MEGA Timaru helps keep our communities children safe.  In the past few years we have donated over 2000 High-Visibility Vests to local Schools.  And it’s not just because we like bright colours.

It was an idea that came about after one of our staff noticed many children walking or waiting for the school bus were a little hard to spot, especially in the dark winter months.

So we teamed up with a number of enthusiastic schools, and by providing the free vests we help make their pupils more visible not only to Bus Drivers, but also to all road users.

The next time you’re on the school run, keep an eye out.  You won’t have to look too far to see the brightest students in the region, with their Mitre 10 MEGA hi - vis vests, they really stand-out.

Smoke Alarms

Mitre 10 MEGA Timaru, in conjunction with New Zealand Royal Plunket and the New Zealand Fire Service, offer every Plunket baby born in Timaru a free Photoelectric Smoke Alarm for babys room.

And if you’re unable to fit the Smoke Alarm yourself, we’ll arrange for The New Zealand Fire Service to pop around to install it for you, free of charge.
