With the Portabello Road Peninsula project nearing completion, and with the George Street upgrade scheduled to start in early 2021, we have aligned ourselves with one of the region’s iconic brands by sponsoring the Otago Highlanders.
Aligning ourselves with New Zealand Rugby’s initiative to promote ‘rip rugby’, we also have an opportunity to get out amongst local schools with players from the team. Rip rugby is slightly different than the traditional game, with a faster pace and rules that are better aligned for kids between 5 and 8. We will be donating rugby balls to each school for their sports resources, player of the day certificates and game day passes too. We are excited to resume school visits when we can!
Many thanks to Katie Smith at the Highlanders for organising the programme with the schools, and to all the players that will be involved in the coming weeks.
