Sponsorship - Arts & Community
Our association with New Zealanders goes way beyond the sports field and events - we also enjoy supporting community initiatives such as the Firefighters Reserve in Christchurch.
“Save the Rowi” West Coast Initiative
Scenic Hotel Group is proud to sponsor the “Save the Rowi” West Coast initiative. This year we sponsored two Rowi chicks called “Lani” and “Earl”. In March 2012 Lani was transferred to Motuara Island near Picton, which serves as a predator free crèche for young birds, and Earl resides in the nocturnal house at the West Coast Wildlife Centre.
To find out more about how you can help save the Rowi, New Zealand’s rarest Kiwi please visit The West Coast Wildlife Centre website.
Family Help Trust
Scenic Hotel Group has recently become a member of the family of sponsors for the Family Help Trust, which provides early intervention services in Christchurch, targeting high risk parents.
Batten Disease NZ
Scenic Hotel Group has for several years been a supporter of Batten Disease NZ, whose mission is to be a national support and research networking organisation for families of children and young adults with this inherited neurological degenerative disorder.
In 2012 Scenic Hotel Group was excited to move into the Pacific with the purchase of the Royal Tonga International Hotel. The refurbishment of the hotel will make it an asset to the tourism market and to the people of Tonga. Scenic looks forward to developing it’s relationship with the people of Tonga. A project is already underway to deliver a large consignment of books for children in need. This is just the start of many planned initiatives to assist the local community in Tonga.
Christchurch City Mission
Every year the Hagaman family donate a large amount of gifts to the Mission to make Christmas a special time for families in need. This year they have invited staff within the Group to get involved and to donate useful and unloved items to be repackaged for less fortunate families. The response from staff has been amazing!
