Our Community

Provender® proud to be loyal sponsors of Special Olympics New Zealand.

We’re helping make a difference to a very worthwhile cause.

Provender New Zealand is proud to support Special Olympics, an organisation which has helped athletes with an intellectual disability to achieve their sporting dreams since 1983.

We enjoy being part of such a valuable New Zealand cause. As proud sponsors since 1999, Provender has contributed in excess of $400,000 to Special Olympics New Zealand. This has helped Special Olympics New Zealand achieve its objective of helping athletes to reach their life goals. With sponsorship exceeding $30,000 this year alone, our support has helped more people with a disability to participate in sports training and competition on a regular basis. 

"Provender has been a huge supporter of Special Olympics New Zealand over many years.  They provide an annual donation that goes directly towards the development of sports programmes that benefit our athletes at community level.  As a committed partner the dedicated Provender team across New Zealand actively support our events and engage with our athletes and their families.  Provender share our values and also adopt a family focus approach to their business. They are also about improving health and well-being which is incredibly important.  It is amazing to see the results for both organisations through our win/win partnership” says Kathy Gibson, CEO Special Olympics New Zealand.

Provender is delighted to continue supporting such a highly respected, globally accredited organisation which, with the assistance of sponsors and donations, is able to give an increased sense of self-worth and independence to those who strive to be accepted in their community.

Special Olympics New Zealand has over 6,200 athletes involved in 13 sports across New Zealand.  Over 3,000 passionate volunteers assist with inspiring communities to support athletes with intellectual disabilities, by participating in quality sports programmes that bring about positive life-changing experiences.

Provender® is proud to support Westpac Rescue Helicopters

The Westpac Rescue Helicopters are on-call 24/7, and are often the difference between life and death for thousands of New Zealanders each year. These helicopters are equipped like intensive care units, which means carrying incredibly expensive gear, not to mention the operating costs of the helicopters and their teams.

Provender is very proud to sponsor this vital service and thank our customers for their support, which allows us to continue with our contributions.
