Learn To Swim Sponsorship - LIZ VAN WELIE SWIM SCHOOL

We have been proudly sponsoring children’s learn to swim programme at Liz Van Welie Swim School for over 4 years and it is such a great feeling to hear the stories of how far, the children that we have sponsored, have flourished over this time and the confidence they now have by being able to swim.

So many families are unable to give their children lessons due to cost so we decided “lets do something” to help, so every month a child is chosen to be a recipient and they receive a “free terms swim lessons, plus cap and goggles and they also get to have their photo up on the “wall of fame”, there are lots of proud faces smiling.

School Holiday Rugby Programme

In 2018 we sponsored the children’s Winter Holidays Rugby Programme run by the Bay of Plenty Rugby Union. A large number of boys and girls enjoyed up to 2 weeks of rugby skills, coaching by academy players and numerous games for them to have fun and learn at the same time. The programme was run by Steamers player manager and former top referee Brett Johnson. We were on hand each day to present daily prizes of rugby paraphernalia, very well received. Our sponsorship also involved free participation from kids at “Homes of Hope” a worth while organisation helping under privileged children.

Grey Power

We are currently involved with Grey Power helping them with being the principle sponsors helping with funding towards postage for their quarterly newsletter which goes out to over 1500 recipients. Along with our sponsorship contribution we also look after our over 65’s if they are listing their property with us by giving them our special Gold Card Discount along with a bonus treat if they say they have seen us in the Grey Power magazine, and we thoroughly enjoy doing this.
