The senior Waimangaroa netball team, kitted out in their new netball uniforms after being awarded a
uniform grant through the ANZ netball grant scheme. The grant purchased uniforms, bibs, balls and a
gear bag. Team member Nikki Roche, who applied for the grant on behalf of the team, said it could be a
struggle to raise money in Buller due to challenging times in the local economy. Expanding from one to
two teams meant they needed another set of uniforms, which was a financial stretch for many players. This
year ANZ is awarding $100,000 in netball grants to help clubs, schools, social teams and fans achieve their
dreams. Westport ANZ branch manager Kristen Bradshaw said the team was passionate about having
fun, staying active, and rising above the economic struggles many of them were experiencing currently.
“The Waimangaroa club work hard at fundraising and we are delighted to assist them in their efforts by
providing a set of uniforms for their newly formed second team.”
