The Taranaki Community Rugby Trust (TCRT) is a registered charity and exists for the purpose of promoting community rugby. We are a unique charity in that we operate a successful dairy farming business to help generate a base of funds to support our cause.
Our belief is that it doesn’t matter your background, being involved in physical team sport is great for kids. It improves physical, mental and social well-being, health and fitness.
TCRT are thrilled to welcome new Donors Damon and Tracey of Stihl Shop Hawera.
They have generously donated a new ride-on lawn mower for use on the Johnston property, which will significantly help in freeing-up time for our farm managers.
Peter Crawford, Malcolm Sutherland, Sean Luttrel and Lynsay Ireland went to visit Damon and Tracey to check out the new mower and provide Stihl Shop with a TCRT Donor Certificate.
To be able to distribute $100,000 per year to relevant rugby community groups and organisations, for the beneficial objectives of influencing health, welfare and safety into the sporting and social fabric of the Taranaki community at large.
Beach Energy our community partner, Farm Source and Osflo, provide substantial support in the running of the farm business, and we are lucky to have many others who continue to provide regular donations to ensure we are able to fulfill our objectives within the community.
We look to support projects and programmes in the areas of health, welfare and safety within community rugby, as well as keeping kids fit and healthy.
