Christmas is the season of giving and this year we want to celebrate our amazing partners and all the great work they do for New Zealand’s communities.
The generosity of our partners goes beyond the support they give to the New Zealand Team, they’re continually striving to make New Zealand a better place for all. Here are some examples of the amazing work they’ve been doing in our communities.
After learning that 1 in 8 Kiwi kids feels excluded from sport because they don’t have the right gear, Cadbury decided to step up.
The organisation launched the ‘Donate Your Kit’ campaign, allowing New Zealanders to give their old kit to those in need.
The campaign also saw the proceeds from specially marked blocks of Cadbury chocolate establish a grant programme to help get Kiwi kids into sport.
The ‘Donate your Kit’ campaign has gifted more than 35-thousand items of sporting equipment to children around the country.
Barfoot and Thompson grew their support for Starship hospital, raising almost 200-thousand dollars for the healthcare provider.
66 members of the Barfoot and Thompson staff also decided to help make a difference, running the Auckland marathon for Starship and raising more than 13-thousand dollars in the process.
Barfoot and Thompson also sponsored Whare Hauora – a Relocatable medical facility to support low decile schools.
ANZ has been the Cancer Society’s major sponsor for the past 30 years. In 2020, ANZ matched public donations through its Digital Daffodil with the aim of raising $1 million.
ANZ also gave New Zealand Netball & Cricket Clubs $1 million in grants to help get them get back on their feet after COVID-19 this year.
Thanks to our partners for the support you give us and our communities, what we do would not be possible without you!
