The Highlanders and its ticketing partners have come up with a tasty deal to ease the discomfort for redundant Cadbury workers.

 The Highlanders, along with Ticket Direct and Dunedin Venues Management Ltd, are providing former Cadbury employees affected by redundancy, following the discontinuation of the Cadbury factory in Dunedin, a double pass to the match against the Brumbies at Forsyth Barr Stadium on Saturday for Round Nine of the Super Rugby competition. .

More than  700 tickets — 360 double passes — will be given to the previous Cadbury employees.

Each former employee will obtain two tickets in the south stand to watch the match.

They will be be accessible for pick up from the south stand box office this Friday or Saturday. The only thing needed is photo identification.

The offer is for staff affected by the redundancies only.

Highlanders chief executive Roger Clark said the Highlanders and partners were delighted to help.

"The Highlanders, DVML and Ticket Direct know that Cadbury employees have experienced the stress of redundancy recently.

"We all enjoy a tremendous amount of support from our community and this is a small way in which we can repay that support," he said.
