Bowel Cancer Fundraising

To continue the kaupapa of supporting Bowel Cancer patients in Tairāwhiti, we will be selling Titirāngi Mt Everest Challenge shirts.

We’ve produced a limited number, and they’ll go on sale at our opening event. When you reach the summit, we’ll have a stall set up to sell these shirts. They’re $15 each or get two for $20. Cash only! Or you can purchase the shirts from our Office, Level 1, 74 Grey St.

If you’re wondering how we can give away 100% of the sale of the shirts, it’s because the awesome businesses on the back of the shirt have sponsored the cost of their production. Thank you to BDO, Ovation, ECT, EIT, Emerre & Hathaway, Huringa Pai, Aon and Eastland Group for getting behind this great cause.

You can also donate to the Gisborne Cancer Society by clicking here.

Bronwyn Kay Agency Sporting Excellence Awards Deferred Until 2021

Following the disruption caused by COVID-19, and the Government’s advice to reduce the risk of spreading the virus, Sport Gisborne Tairāwhiti has decided to defer the Bronwyn Kay Agency Sporting Excellence Awards until 2021. 

Unfortunately, our environment is ever-evolving and there is too much uncertainty at this time to reschedule the annual event for later on this year.

The prestigious awards offer our region the opportunity to acknowledge and pay tribute to the many fine sporting achievements by the sporting community over the last 12 months. 

A key component of the Awards is the generosity from all of our sponsors. We would like to thank all of our local sponsors for their continued support and understanding. 

Sport Gisborne Tairāwhiti Chief Executive Stefan Pishief said ‘It is not a decision that we took lightly, as we know that our sports awards are a community highlight, and we have so many great athletes, volunteers, and providers of sport that deserve to be recognised for their outstanding achievements and contributions. However, we do need to ensure the safety of our community.’ 

The impact of COVID-19 disrupted the qualifying period where athletes, teams, clubs, and coaches could showcase their talents. 

Sport Gisborne Tairāwhiti Event Lead Debbie Hutchings said ‘as a result of the cancelled 2020 Sports Awards, the revised qualification period for the 2021 event will extend to include achievements obtained from July 2019 through to June 2021.  We are mindful that some individuals and teams obtained incredible results prior to COVID and so we need to ensure there is an opportunity to celebrate these successes’

At Sport Gisborne Tairāwhiti we understand how frustrating this must be for our community. However, we are planning to be able to come together and celebrate an even more extensive range of our region’s sporting achievements in November of next year.
