Sponsorship

We’re an active contributor to Marlborough's major events, supplying free-of-charge services and resources to assist with the temporary power supply for events such as the Marlborough Wine Festival, Blues Brews and BBQs, and the Classic Fighters Airshow.

At Christmas we help to bring some extra festive cheer through long-standing support of the Carols by Candlelight and annual Christmas Parades in Picton and Blenheim.

In 2003 we installed decorative lighting at Blenheim's Pollard Park which we have continued to maintain and upgrade. The lights are switched on at the beginning of November each year until the end of summer and are a popular attraction for locals and visitors to the region.

We also provide funding and field support to the Marlborough Sounds Restoration Trust to assist in the eradication of Wilding Pines.

We’re very proud to be principal sponsor of Marlborough's Stadium, and a long-time sponsor of the Marlborough Lines Science and Technology Fair, Tertiary Study Awards, Chamber of Commerce Business Awards and the Life Flight Trust.
