Countdown Begins To National
Cambridge Bmx Club Prepares To Represent Waipa District
In just a couple of days the Cambridge BMX Club will be going head to head with the country’s best and brightest voluntary groups and organisations at the TrustPower National Community Awards.
The 2012 TrustPower National Community Awards are being held in the Far North District from 22 - 24 March 2013.
Cambridge BMX Club is representing the Waipa District at the National Community Awards – an honour they won after being named Supreme Winner at the TrustPower Waipa District Community Awards last year. The TrustPower Waipa District Community Awards are run in conjunction with Waipa District Council.
Joining the Cambridge BMX Club at the National Community Awards will be representatives from 23 other voluntary groups or organisations from around the country that were named Supreme Winner at their regional TrustPower Community Awards.
At the National Community Awards, the Cambridge BMX Club will give an eight minute presentation on what the group has achieved and why they deserve the title of TrustPower National Community Awards Supreme Winner. Cambridge BMX Club will be judged on that presentation, along with a 1,000 word summary of the organisation.
The presentations will take place on Saturday 23 March at the Turner Centre in Kerikeri, with the Winner and Runner-Up being announced at an Awards dinner that evening being held at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds.
TrustPower Community Relations Representative Teresa Partridge says the Cambridge BMX Club have put together a fantastic presentation.
“The Waipa community should be really proud of what the Cambridge BMX Club has achieved. They will make wonderful ambassadors for your community at the TrustPower National Community Awards,” says Mrs Partridge.
“Shifting the Cambridge BMX Club from its location of 30 years was no small feat considering that it is one of the biggest BMX clubs in the country. But this group fundraised and did the hard yards to make it happen and as a result, it’s a world class facility. We can’t wait to hear how they made it all happen!”
Attending the National Community Awards from the Cambridge BMX Club will be Dawne Nelson and Noelene Kidd, along with Waipa District Mayor Alan Livingston and his wife Janet.
The TrustPower National Community Awards Supreme Winner will take home $2,500, a framed certificate, a trophy and a $500 voucher from Exult, a leading and specialist training provider for the community sector. The Runner Up will receive $1,500, a framed certificate and a $200 voucher from Exult.
Meanwhile, entries are now

voluntary groups and not-for-profit organisations are

District Community Awards will go to the TrustPower National
Community Awards in March
