Please read the responses to our Frequently Asked Questions before submitting your request.

Our Official Community Partners

Variety - the Children's Charity

Variety provides tailored and flexible support to disadvantaged New Zealand children, working alongside schools, community agencies, social workers and healthcare professionals to identify Kiwi kids in need. Variety sponsorships provide children with funding for basic essentials (such as warm bedding and school uniforms), and access to extra-curricular activities (such as school camp or swimming lessons). Variety also provides one-off grants for additional needs (such as medical and mobility equipment). Variety NZ is registered with the New Zealand Charities Commission and part of Variety International, a global organisation with 44 offices in 13 countries. View their website

The WaterBoy

The WaterBoy works to break down barriers to give opportunities for disadvantaged youth to participate in sport. They believe that sport is an integral part of being a kiwi kid and growing up in New Zealand. The personal development and health benefits received from sport are second to none, and the WaterBoy think that every kiwi should have the opportunity to play sport.

WaterBoy are about creating stronger people, not necessarily champions, so they focus their support on participation at a community level. But, with the help of professional athletes who strive to be champions, Waterboy can create stronger dreams, greater heroes, higher aspirations, and stronger communities through breaking down barriers and showing a pathway to participation and what's possible through sport.
