Local Legends – Submit your nominations

Your chance to win $5,000 for your community club!

We think it’s fair to say that Kiwis are a pretty legendary bunch! We’ve been saying thanks to Local Legends within the community, and we think it’s time to thank some of our great community clubs and teams.

Most of us are involved with a community club or team that could use a hand, and we want to help more Kiwis continue in their legendary ways. You might coach a sports team that needs new uniforms or some new equipment. Perhaps you need more supplies to knit jerseys for penguins (it’s a thing!). Legends do lots of weird and wonderful things for lots of different community groups.

Each quarter we will be surprising a local Bay of Plenty group with a $5,000 grant to help them carry on doing what they love. If you have a club or team in mind that you would like to nominate, tell us a little bit about them by entering below*. Not sure how much detail to include in your nomination? Scroll down to see the first winning nomination.

 The seventh grant will be awarded at the end of March 2022.
