Local community initiative is highly important to support and at Tommy’s our sales team are well known for their efforts among their own local Wellington communities. Tommy’s sales director, Nicki Cruickshank and sales agent Sam Newble, are major sponsors for the fundraising of community initiatives in Hataitai – their local suburb in Wellington. Their current initiative is aiming to raise money in support of refurbishing the Hataitai Centre and Village Green to once again become a key community hub in Hataitai. Over the past 4 weeks, the Hataitai Village Green has played host to two outdoor movie events with all money going to the refurbishment initiative. The events themselves, with immense time and effort from volunteers and members of the Hataitai Resident’s Association have been an amazing success. Local Wellingtonians have packed out the Village Green enjoying the festive nights, food provided by volunteers and Hataitai based Waitoa Social Club’s pop-up bar facilities. We are so proud to see gatherings of local support directly sponsored by our hard-working salespeople to provide what has been a retro, nostalgic sequence of blockbuster movies enjoyed under the evening stars. At the second movie screening, we got amongst the crowd to get their thoughts on the night itself and the cause they’re supporting. We also caught up with one of the chief organiser’s, Sonia from the Hataitai Residents Association, who has been key to both Nicki and Sam’s sponsorship of this community initiative. A massive thank you goes out to all those involved in making these events a huge success toward raising awareness and fundraising for such an amazing community cause.
