Kotuku Music Academy Support Trust Awarded For Community Service

Wellington Airport, in partnership with the Community Trust of Wellington, is proud to announce the winners of the 2008 Wellington Airport Regional Community Awards. The Supreme winner is Koruku Music Academy Support Trust for its work in providing a safe community for young people through music to overcome abuse, violence, and social barriers to achieve what is beyond expectation.

In addition, five other community service awards across various sectors of the Wellington region were presented at a celebration dinner held at Wellington Airport.

2008 Wellington Airport Regional Community Award winners:

Kotuku Music Academy Support Trust - Supreme Winner

Mana Tiaki Incorporated - arts and culture

Volunteer Wellington - education, child and youth

Riding for the Disabled Hutt Valley - health and well-being

Paekakariki Station Precinct Trust - heritage and environment

Athletics Wellington Officials - sport and leisure

“These awards appreciate not only the wonderful contribution of volunteers to our community, but also the many ways in which these groups enhance the character and identity of the Wellington region,” said Steven Fitzgerald, CEO.

The awards are a journey that begins at the municipal level with Wellington’s five councils holding their own award ceremony to celebrate the work of volunteer organisations in their local community. The Supreme Winner, Kotuku Music Academy Support Trust, will represent Wellington at the National TrustPower Community Awards in March next year.

The efforts of Wellington Airport’s own volunteer Ambassadors, and Luvaine McDonald for her contribution to Wellington High Performance Aquatics in making its first year so successful were also recognised at the awards ceremony.
