Dunedin Curtain Bank

Are you struggling to stay warm? Curtains make a significant difference to the warmth of a home; a third of all heat loss in an un-insulated home occurs through windows. Even double-glazed windows let out more heat than un-insulated walls. The Dunedin Curtain Bank is a community organization that up-cycles unwanted and unused curtains, lines them, and distributes them to those in need for just $5 per pair. Located at 174 Princes Street, they also accept donations of usable curtains for distribution.

Too gay to donate blood?

Aotearoa New Zealand’s largest and most ambitious study of its kind aims to make blood donation fairer for gay, bisexual, takatāpui and other men who have sex with men (MSM). The study is called “SPOTS”: Sex and Prevention Of Transmission Study, and the researchers want to hear from 4,000 MSM about their views on blood donation and their safe sex practices. The study is led by the University of Auckland in partnership with the University of Otago and community organisations such as the NZ AIDS Foundation, Body Positive, Māori sexual health organisation Te Whāriki Takapou and the NZ Blood Service. The information from the survery aims to help prevent HIV and STI transmission, improve Aotearoa's blood donation policy for men who have sex with men, and reduce undiagnosed HIV, hepatitis C and syphilis in our community.
