Whilst most of New Zealand Wool Scouring’s sponsorship is centred around the wool industry good activities such as the Golden Shears, Speed Shearing and wool industry promotional events, we do take the opportunity to sponsor and support local teams when we can.
Several months ago, we supported Noah Robinson with some help for him to travel to Tauranga as he was selected for the Basketball Hawke’s Bay Under 11 Development Programme.
Noah is an outstanding young athlete, gifted in being able to play rugby, rugby league and touch rugby as well as basketball all at a regional level. At 11 years old, we see the potential in him as an athlete and want to encourage his motivation and dedication. He has spent time here at the scour and has agreed to promote the use of wool as a sustainable and biodegradable product, well done Noah!
Noah's Wildcats Basketball Year 5 &6 team took out Division 1 in the Hastings Competition for Term 2
Noah has previously been selected for the HB Rugby Leauge Under 10s, the Hastings West C Grade Reps.
Touch rugby trialing for the Matau A Maui U12 boys. This team will play at the Junior Māori Nationals being held in Hastings on 26 & 27 October 2019. He will again trial for Touch Hawke's Bay to hopefully gain a place to represent HB at the IPS Central Regionals being held 21 & 22 December 2019.
Go Noah, lets keep an eye on this name for the future as this young lad will end up representing NZ in sport for sure.
Terri Reid, our Office Administrator here at Awatoto (pictured 2nd from the left) is competing at a squash tournament in Tawa, playing as part of the Hawke’s Bay E Grade Squash team.
Given the opportunity to support our sports-people and promote the greatness of wool in active sports wear, we sponsored a set of Kathmandu hoodies or half zip wool tops, certified to RWS (Responsible Wool Standard) and embroidered and printed with our company logo. The ladies have agreed to become “wool ambassadors” while they are wearing the fine products from Kathmandu. No plastic around here please!
We want to promote wool in all of its uses and these Merino tops both look great and feel the part. Go the Hawke’s Bay E Grade Squash team!
We hope that we can spread the word on this amazing fibre, because -
We love wool!
