Charities & Community Involvement
It is important to Addington that we reach out to our local community involving ourselves and supporting many charitable and not for profit organisations.
Our support by way of sponsorship or donations plays a vital part to many community organisations ensuring they continue to operate within a positive environment.
Every few months Addington supports a different charity and during the months of January, February and March 2017 we are supporting The Rebecca Black Trust. The trust has been set up to support the children of Rebecca Black. There is a donation box in Spectators and if you wish to make a personal donation please click here for the details.
Can For Coffee
During the months of November and December we supported the Christchurch City Mission through our Can for Coffee promotion in Spectators. Pictured below is Addington Head Chef, Graeme Jones and Spectators team member, Adam delivering this years box to the Christchurch City Mission. Thank you to everyone who contributed.
$1,000 RAISED FOR JONTY’S JOURNEY
During April and May, Addington & Spectators raised $1,000 for Jonty’s Journey – a big thank you to everyone who contributed. Pictured below is trustee for Jonty’s Journey Trust, Gavin Smith, supported by key fundraising players, Nigel and Brenda Armstrong along with Jonty and his family accepting the cheque from Addington Raceway CEO, Dean McKenzie.
