We will continue to support organisations that provide vital help to those who need it most.

Over our many years in business, we have supported local and national sporting and charitable organisations, as a way of giving back to the communities we live in.

In 2010, we were a proud Silver Sponsor of the Neonatal Trusts’ ‘Project Born’. This was a high-end lingerie fashion show, including dance, drama, music, and amazing creations from Weta Workshop. Corporate sponsorship and donations funded the show’s production, with a large team of volunteers assisting the production and creative team.

The full ticket price of $175 was donated directly to the Neonatal Trust, raising around $100,000 towards the $1.2m needed each year to sustain their crucial work caring for the tiniest and most vulnerable babies throughout the country. We will be proud to continue our support of the Trust.

In 2011, amongst other things, PLACE has sponsored two teams in the Five Passes cycle race, starting late October in Christchurch. This annual event sees competitors cycle over Evans Pass, Weka Pass, Lewis Pass, Arthurs Pass, and Porters Pass: a total of 650km in five days.

We’ll post photos of the teams and let you know how they got on at the end of the event.
