The Waimea Weekly is getting behind Brightwater’s Wanderers Sports Club as community sport gets back on its feet after a challenging 2020.
The leading media company in the region has given $2500 worth of advertising as part of the club’s Business Promotion Raffle aimed to give the club a cash injection. On top of the advertising package, the raffle, with prizes worth more than $5000, includes two season tickets to all Tasman Mako home games in this year and signage at Wanderers Sports Club facilities at Brightwater Domain and Lord Rutherford Park.
Waimea Weekly owners Steve Page and Jenny Bates say they know the value sport plays in the community and they are thrilled to be able to support Wanderers.
Marty Davis says funding had become hard to source since Covid-19.
“We find ourselves under serious pressure,” he says.
“We are in the process of renovating the fence surrounding Centennial Park at Charlotte Lane, which will result in a new pristine signage display, complete with seating for viewing rugby and cricket, as well as erecting signage at the squash courts and netball/tennis courts.
“Sandwich signs will also be created for display at Lord Rutherford Park.
“We can no longer rely on the gaming industry or bar takings to prop us up.
“Community support is everything for us and we are grateful to Steve and Jenny at the Waimea Weekly for their support.”
Tickets are on sale now at $100 each and new signs will be in place for the start of the winter sports season in March.
