So, we’re delighted to partner with Neighbourly for our annual Community Grants initiative, which is in its fourth year running. Grants provide the necessary support for neighbourhood groups to keep doing the awesome work they do and it’s something the team at AMI is very proud of.

In February, we called for applications for our first round of grants from you, the Neighbourly community, for the groups you see doing amazing work. We received the most applications ever, with so many amazing and worthy groups featured. It was very difficult to select the finalists, but thanks to your votes, we’re pleased to say we’ve found the 2019 first round of winners:

The New Brighton Community Gardens has been running since 2005, providing hands on learning about how to grow low cost quality food. Volunteers contribute their time tending to the garden in exchange for good, fresh, organic vegetables. The Gardens also runs education programs for local preschools and schools. The team will use the funds for a new Growroom with a small footprint to grow produce vertically – read more. If you want to volunteer or support their efforts visit their website.

AMI Road Safety Awards winner...

AMI Sydenham

It’s Road Safety Week, and this year the team at Road Safety Education, a nationwide organisation, held the first ever Road Safety Awards!

We are honoured to have been invited to present an award on behalf of the whole AMI team. The recipient of the AMI Community Road Safety Award is RoadSafe Northland, and we were delighted to present the award to Gillian Archer.

RoadSafe Northland is a Northland collective of Road Safety Partners and agencies, under the umbrella of the Northland Road Safety Trust. This charitable trust funds, delivers and supports road safety initiatives in the region on behalf of the Whangārei and Kaipara Districts and the Northland Transportation Alliance, comprising all four Northland councils.

While Northland, like the rest of the country, has a challenging road toll, the incidence of young drivers in fatal and serious crashes has significantly reduced in the last couple of years. Programmes, such as RYDA where nearly 5000 Northland students have participated since inception in 2009, has provided a significant contribution to this reduction.

Gillian of RoadSafe Northland had this to say about the award: “I want to thank Road Safety Education and AMI for the AMI Community Award, for recognising the significant partnership that has allowed this programme to develop and grow in our area. It is timely to acknowledge the many local community partners who have supported this programme over the years. As well as the significant support from local AMI staff and the RYDA team, we have a range of contributors including loan cars provided by Dargaville Ford and Pacific Ford, catering by Rapid Relief Team, support staff from People Potential and Rotary and additional funding from COGS and The Warehouse Dargaville, and of course both Whangārei and Kaipara Councils.

“This award is for all of these partners who have made such a significant Young Driver programme possible.”

Want to help the families affected by the recent quakes? We’re helping collect donations for the Kaiapoi Christmas Carnival this weekend, and you can too.


A number of quake-affected families from Culverden, Waiau, Scargill, Kaikoura and all in between will be taken on a day out to the Kaiapoi Christmas Carnival this Saturday 3rd December, where they’ll receive a free lunch and a community-donated gift for the kids.

We’d love you to donate gifts for these children, and six of our AMI stores will be open to receive your generous donations. You can drop them into any of the below stores before 5pm this Friday 2nd December:
Kaiapoi
Rangiora
Papanui
Sydenham
Hornby
Riccarton

Our staff have volunteered to sort and wrap these gifts after hours, and our Kaiapoi team will be there on the day helping out. Aimee our fire truck will also be getting in on the action, giving Santa a ride so he can deliver the gifts.

Your help is greatly appreciated and there’s nothing better than putting smiles on children’s faces at Christmas.

AMI Regional manager Gary Rennie says, the idea behind the initiative is to have a “pressure-free day out” so families could take their minds off the troubles and stress affecting them and their home towns.

About the carnival:

From 12pm Saturday 3rd December at Murphy Park, Kaiapoi, you can come along and see performances, browse food and craft stalls, ride the amusement rides and see Santa himself. The carnival is free to attend and great fun for the whole family. The Santa parade will commence at 2pm, with entertainment running into the evening.

We hope to see you there!

If you have any questions about the donations or the Kaiapoi Christmas Carnival, please email: marketing@ami.co.nz
