Here are some of the local recipients and organisations that do amazing work in our community.
Nelson Food Bank:
Ian and his team at the Nelson Food Bank work so hard for our community, it’s always a pleasure to support them. We know that this $1000 donation will help them help others.
We also need to extend our thanks to you, our wonderful customers who have donated a ton of groceries over the past few weeks… You are all proving that kindness is alive and well in Nelson.
Nelson Dental Association:
We were delighted involved in a project organised by the Nelson Dental Association to donate toothbrushes and toothpaste to the Salvation Army Food Bank and $500 for kid’s dental care.
Summer Challenge 2020:
Anybody who celebrates adventure racing in our beautiful great outdoors is worthy of support. What a pleasure to be able to help the organisers of the Nelson Summer Challenge with a $1000 donation.
Nelson International Croquet Event:
The Nelson Internation Croquet Event was a worthy recipient for a $500 donation!
Nelson’s Christmas Celebration:
Each year Nelson City Council organises a lunch for older people, including couples, who would otherwise be spending Christmas Day alone.
Complete with Christmas carols, a tree, cake, and a visit from Santa with presents, it’s a very special occasion and a pleasure to be involved in some small way, we gave a $500 donation.
Nelson Lawn Tennis Club:
Right in the heart of Nelson City, the Nelson Community Tennis Centre is home to Nelson Lawn Tennis Club.
This friendly club is open to those of any age and ability, so we wanted to support them with a $500 donation.
Nelson Hospital Springtime Soiree:
The inaugural Nelson Hospital Springtime Soirée was held in November at the amazing Pic’s Peanut Butter World.
This year, it raised funds for Alzheimer’s Nelson/Tasman, a local branch of a national NGO supporting people with Dementia and Alzheimer’s. It was a pleasure to show our support with a $500 donation.
