Activities Fund 2012
Auckland Council holds a fund to support the local community to promote the Push Play message and run activities/evens during the Push Play period. Sport Waitakere administers the fund, and allocates grants to community groups who apply to run Push Play events and activities. Public events will be promoted in Sport Waitakere’s Push Play Activities Guide, to be printed or inserted into the Western Leader during the campaign, and to be available on Sport Waitakere’s website.
The fund is available for not for profit groups who have the aim of running an event, activity or programme in Waitakere (Henderson-Massey, Waitakere Ranges or Whau local board areas), for Waitakere people, that will promote the Push Play message during the Push Play period (29 September – 22 October 2012). Examples of activities are club open days, church activities day family/street sports day or school tabloid sports event.
