The Pūkeko Centre have been selected as a semi-finalist for the Mitre 10 Community of the Year in the 2019 New Zealander of the Year Awards. The Centre is a multi-use sports and recreation hub providing facilities for a range of organisations, clubs and groups.
This national award honours those who use their passion to make our country a better place, and to be named as one of only 10 semi-finalists out of 231 nominations is an amazing achievement.
This is a recognition of all those who have donated so much time and energy to this community led development, and also what great progress the Pūkeko Centre has made to achieve the shared vision of creating a sports and recreation hub that will benefit the whole community.
Nexia New Zealand recognises the importance of giving back, and being involved in our community. One of our Partners, Craig Rhodes, has been heavily involved in providing both governance and organisational leadership advice for the centre over the years and continues to do so for similar organisations.
Nexia New Zealand wishes the Pūkeko Centre all the best for the upcoming awards. Finalists will be announced on January 20th.
