Taranaki Businesses Challenged To Support Local Charities & Groups
Registered Master Builders and Award-winning Taranaki business, Custom Construction NZ, is challenging other Taranaki businesses to get out there today and make a real difference in their community. Owners, Karen and Nathan Mumby, are on a quest to find allies in the fight for a better world.
This vibrant young company is working hard to build great houses and great communities, leading by example with their dedication and hard work supporting local charities. Their core values include consideration of others and citizenship; not every business considers this important, although every company has the power to make a significant contribution to the community.
Custom Construction NZ is currently supporting the Little Fighters Charitable Trust in their drive to fund and support a room in the Ronald McDonald House at Starship Hospital for Taranaki families dealing with life-threatening illness. The “Big Heroes, Little Fighters Cocktail Evening and Charity Auction” is to be held at Arborio Restaurant in New Plymouth on October 19th at 7 pm.
“Like many business owners, we have to juggle our time and resources carefully and we are really proud of the work we do. And as business owners, we are lucky enough to be in the position to make a difference, however small!” Karen said.
“We welcome and support any other local business owners who want to get involved in community projects like the Little Fighters Event. It is a great cause and every little bit helps,” said Karen. “Helping our community and the amazing people who live here is really close to our hearts.”
The Little Fighters Charitable Trust strives to ensure Taranaki families never have to fight alone when dealing with life-threatening illness. “Were it not for the generous support of the local business community we would not be able to operate,” says Darrin West, the Chairman for The Fighters Trust. “So, it’s a huge credit to local business operators like Karen and Nathan from Custom Construction, who have big hearts and are a huge asset to us in supporting families in our community. We are always looking for business partners to align with so encourage anyone wanting to support a local charity to get in touch.”
With many worthy charities and community groups operating in the Taranaki, there are plenty of opportunities for businesses to do more. Even the smallest contribution of time can sometimes make a big difference to peoples lives.
