THE team over at Charlie’s thought it was time to spice things up a little! This winter they have launched a Quencher with bit of a kick. The perfect combination of orange, lime, and a fiery kick of ginger to create Charlie’s new Winter Quencher.
For the launch Charlie’s teamed up with three different knitting groups across Auckland, the Auckland Knitters Group, Avondale Knit Wits and Oratia Craft Group, to make sure its Winter Quenchers were staying warm in the chiller this season. The groups produced 800 mini scarves to be placed on the Winter Quencher bottles in New World and Pak N Save stores nationwide. Charlie’s fans were then called on to post any snaps of the mini scarves on social media and be in to win a case of their own.
The knitting groups involved in the project meet not only to share a passion for craft and a cuppa tea or two, but to help little nippers in their community who are not yet able to fend for themselves.
Each of the groups are involved in supporting charities such as Kids First, the Premature Unit at Waitakere Hospital and Starship by making woollen hats and jumpers. To thank them for their efforts Charlie’s are donating wool (25km worth to be exact) to help the groups continue their charity work.
