Most of us like to receive something special, something as a treat … maybe a candle, wallet or a toy. If you are looking for a gift to give to a special someone, visit Paddington Store in the Bayfair Shopping Centre at Mount Maunganui. Paddington Store has plenty of gift ideas for people of all ages, including yourself!


Paddington Store has recently given 10 care packs to Women’s Refuge Tauranga 🎁 These care packs, each worth $106, included Ashley and Co. lip balm and soap, a Bianca Lorenne blanket and a renewing face mask. For women suffering from abuse and who seek a safe haven for themselves and their children at Women’s Refuge Tauranga, these care packs are a little bit of luxury and indulgence to help them feel unique and appreciated. The care packs would also help these women to gain some form of self-confidence and self-esteem.

Women’s Refuge is a New Zealand-wide organisation whose vision is “for all women and children in Aotearoa to live free from domestic and family violence”. Sadly, family violence is a significant issue in Aotearoa New Zealand society. 

Therefore, S&L Land Specialists wanted to help alleviate some of the harm associated with family violence and worked with Paddington Store and GoGenerosity to offer some care to these women. S&L Land Specialists, based at 97 Grey Street in Tauranga, is a team of planners, surveyors and engineers who can advise people on land use and development. They are a locally owned business that has been part of Tauranga’s history since the 1960s. However, they do not just take pride in the physical environment; they want to help improve the social environment as well so have been active in helping women at the Women’s Refuge Tauranga in the local area. S&L Land Specialists and Paddington Store, just like GoGenerosity, believe in paying-it-forward for a better future for the women and children of Tauranga.
