Mr Rental Hawkes Bay pledges support to Maraenui Motivators


Mr Rental Hawkes Bay has pledged its support to the Maraenui Motivators, an organisation committed to combatting community issues of social divide, through health and fitness.

Led by franchisee Di Bannister, the store helps out the community group by donating fitness equipment for weekly circuit training.

The aim of the training sessions is to unite members though building relationships and opening up communication channels.

“Mr Rental Hawkes Bay is committed to supporting the community that supports them. This can be done through the donation of equipment, and the Maraenui Motivators has been an excellent group to work with,” Ms Bannister said.

“The not for profit group seeks to unite the many subcultures within the community to promote respect and understanding so that progress can be made on social issues.

“Mr Rental Hawkes Bay has provided fitness equipment the group would otherwise not have been able to afford and will also be supporting the regular Maraenui Motivator fundraising barbeques by supplying food.”

The equipment will be used at the Maraenui Sports and Recreation Club and Ms Bannister said she looked forward to seeing her donation make a difference in the community.

“We are very excited to be involved in this ongoing initiative as it is very much about the community taking ownership and resolving these issues themselves – all we are doing is supplying some of the tools,” she said.

A franchise group servicing all areas of Australia and New Zealand, Mr Rental keeps life simple by offering a wide range of technology, furniture, white goods and fitness equipment for home, lifestyle or business.

You can visit Di Bannister and her friendly team at Mr Rental Hawkes Bay, 106a Southland Road, Hastings or call (06) 878 5770 or visit www.mrrental.co.nz.

2040 Target And Lower Standards: “Swimmable” Rivers Five Times More Likely To Make You Sick

Forest & Bird has condemned the government’s new water quality standards, warning New Zealanders that they lock in current levels of water pollution and allow for a 5-fold increase in the chance of getting sick from swimming in a river.

“Despite an explicit assurance from Minister Smith that the new water standards would provide for human and ecosystem health, he has failed to deliver on either of these things,” says Forest & Bird CEO Kevin Hague. More>>
