Charity Partner of NZ Rugby

Due to the ongoing disruption from the global pandemic, we were lucky enough to have the support of New Zealand Rugby (NZR) continued. NZR’s national teams including the All Blacks, Black Ferns, Māori All Blacks, Under 20 All Blacks, Black Ferns Sevens and All Blacks Sevens.

During our four years with the teams in Black, we have been lucky to have players involved in some exciting campaigns such as Overcoming Obstacles, Join Our Scrum, Look Up and Magic of Mentoring.

Across these campaigns, students from Kiwi Can, Stars, Career Navigator and Project K got to meet and get involved in some challenges with players and were ecstatic when they found out just who they got to hang out with for the day. Some were also lucky enough to get the chance to meet SIX60.

Chief Executive Officer, Jenny Stiles, said being selected as Charity of Choice for New Zealand Rugby was an incredible opportunity and has helped raise the profile of the work the Foundation does throughout Aotearoa, New Zealand.

“Rugby is at the heart of so many communities we work in across Aotearoa and it has been wonderful to see the amazing opportunities Graeme Dingle Foundation tamariki and rangatahi have experienced through our partnership with New Zealand Rugby. Our latest campaign ‘Magic of Mentoring’ includes Black Ferns and All Blacks alongside our Project K and Career Navigator students – this year our topic was all about the importance of mentoring.”
