Pause the pokies

From Afternoons, 1:20 pm on 28 August 2018

Next week pubs and clubs around the country will "pause" their pokies for an hour in honour of Gambling Harm Awareness Week. 

The theme for the week is "take time out". Gamblers are encouraged to take a break and spend some time with whanau. 

Andree Froude from the Problem Gambling Foundation of New Zealand tells about the impact pokies have on communities.
