Our 'Thank You' keeps on giving.

Register or refer a Consultant / MOSS colleague to NZDr for locum work and and every time either of you completes a full week of locum work (40 hours) via us we will make a $50 donation to the NZ Variety Children‘s Charity.

NZDr has chosen specifically to support The Variety Have a Go Scholarships programme. The programme gives disadvantaged kids the chance to participate in extra-curricular activities – activities that their caregivers would otherwise be unable to afford. These experiences are a critical step in helping children to build confidence, learn new skills and develop lasting friendships.  

Variety Have a Go Scholarships range from $250 to $500 per year, with the funds awarded used to support: 

  • Activity fees & registration costs (e.g. gymnastics, netball, soccer, swimming lessons)
  • Sports uniforms, clothing and equipment (e.g. rugby boots, netball uniform)
  • Music lessons and equipment
  • Drama/dance tuition
  • Extra tuition (e.g. English, Maths, computer programming)  
  • Career trips (e.g. leadership courses)
  • Cultural activities
  • Personal development activities (e.g. school camp, outward bound) 

Each year Variety seeks applications from schools and communities across the country to identify children who would benefit greatly from a Have a Go Scholarship. They don’t have to be sporting superstars or academic whizz kids – just Kiwi kids who are missing out through no fault of their own. 

Through a combination of your referral and our weekly donations, together we can make a lasting difference to some of these children, giving them the opportunity not only to enjoy their childhood, but to contribute positively to NZ society as they grow.
