To know a community we believe you need to play an active part in it. For us this means contributing to what makes Hamilton distinctive.

From sponsorship of Balloons over Waikato, to supporting local facilities like the Hamilton Netball Centre and getting behind local sports teams like Hamilton Boy’s High 1st XV to allow them to shine on the national and international stage we love being a part what makes Hamilton so unique.

That’s why you’ll often see us out and about supporting or helping out at local clubs, schools and charity events. Through our sponsorships we hope we can make Hamilton communities more exciting places to live. Keep scrolling to see our current sponsorships.
