It has been another fantastic round of fundraising for the 4 local charities in this years 2016 Z Rutherford Good in the Hood. Not only have these hard working, and very deserving charities been given their share of the $4,000 on offer in this funding round, but they also had the opportunity to get amongst the locals on each of the Saturday's during May with their car washes to raise awareness for their specific causes.
This is the real beauty of being Good in the Hood - the chance to enable the charities usually working behind the scenes to come forward and talk to everyday locals about what they actually do.
For most people in our community, they are not really aware of all that these charity groups do, unless they happen to need their services. The more we collectively shine a light on these groups, hopefully the easier a job they have to provide the amazing services that they do. Most of these groups have to raise operational funds themselves, which is a very daunting task, and rely on the kindness of volunteers to deliver the vital support that they do to our community.
This year we made a short video of handing over the donations and hearing from the representatives of the charities themselves. Awesome!
Today we met the 4 charities involved in this year's Z Energy Good in the Hood funding round at Z Rutherford. Huge congratulations to St. John Ambulance in New Zealand, Fostering Kids New Zealand, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Nelson and the Iron Duke Sea Scouts. What an awesome result.Posted by Bowater Motor Group on Friday, 17 June 2016
It is a fantastic opportunity to be able to give back to our community whenever we can. The Z Energy Good in the Hood iniative is a wonderful vehicle to enable us to deliver another layer of support back to the groups working so hard on behalf of the entire community.
