The Whangawehi project won the National Pride of NZ Award in the Environment category

What a fantastic recognition !

After hundreds of nominations and months of judging and voting, some of the country’s top unsung heroes have been named winners of the inaugural Pride of New Zealand Awards last Thursday.Seven people from around New Zealand received the gongs – honouring bravery and heroism, community spirit, lifetime achievement, environmental ambassadorship, emergency services and fundraiser of the year – at a glitzy event at Auckland Museum last night.

The Whangawehi Catchment Management Group represented by Kathleen Mato and Rae Te Nahu won the National Environmental Award. This Award recognises at National level the work done by all the volunteers of the Whangawehi Community since 2010 in order to improve the water quality in the Whangawehi catchment.

Well done and congratulations to you all.
