Partnership recognised with award nomination

Partnership recognised with award nomination

(Tuesday March 4) A partnership that spans more than 10 programmes and events has seen Sport Southland and BNZ recognised at a national level for their ommercial partnership.

Sport Southland and BNZ are finalists in the Commercial Partnership category of this year’s New Zealand Sport and Recreation Awards; a nomination Sport Southland chief executive Brendon McDermott is delighted with.

“We have been working closely with BNZ for the past four years, across a wide range of programmes and events and to have that partnership recognised at this level is fantastic,” he “The key strength is that it is a real partnership, rather than a sponsorship. BNZ staff volunteer at a number of our events, we join with them in their Closed for Good day and there is a real connection of values between the organisations.”

“To have that partnership recognised by being a finalist in the New Zealand Sport and Recreation Awards really shows the strength of our relationship.”

BNZ supports a wide range of community-based programmes and events run by Sport
Southland, including the BNZ Surf to City – Southland’s largest participation-based event –, the BNZ Workplace Challenge and the BNZ Aerobics and Hip Hop Festival amongst up to seven other initiatives and programmes primarily designed to encourage more Southlanders to get involved in sport, recreation or physical activity.

The latest addition to the partnership is the purchase of an activity trailer – a trailer filled with equipment designed to encourage children to take part in active play – which features both Sport Southland and BNZ branding.

BNZ Senior Partner Jared Stockman said BNZ staff engagement in the partnership with Sport Southland was excellent.

“Our respective teams share many of the same interests and values and BNZ staff love to get involved, whether it be volunteering at some of the events that we support, in addition to many of our staff and their families actively participating in events,” he said.

“We are thrilled to be involved with Sport Southland, an organisation that reaches the entire Southland region through a wide range of programmes and events that benefit the whole The New Zealand Sport and Recreation Awards will be celebrated on April 14, in Finalists and more information on the awards can be found here: http://

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
