Community

Proud to play our part for our community

Deep roots in the Waikato

APL has deep roots in the Waikato. Our success has been nurtured by this place, and we in turn want to help it grow. As one way of contributing to the community, we devote time, resources and a lot of heart to regional and national sporting talent such as the Gallagher Chiefs, Vantage Black Sticks and the Silver Ferns, to name a few. Below you can also read about our support for the Grassroots Trust Velodrome facility at Cambridge.

Social services are on our radar, too. For some years, we’ve thrown our weight behind Hospice Waikato’s fundraising efforts, contributing auction items for its annual Bucket List Banquet. And further afield, we’ve helped the Auckland City Mission’s efforts to create a new home for that city’s most needy.

For us, community and sustainability concerns are intimately linked. We’re knee-deep in community-level environmental efforts in our region, including getting involved in riparian planting projects alongside Waikato waterways, and a pallet recycling exercise with a Kawhia trust. Whatever it takes we’re proud to play our part, because the way we see it we’re all part of one big Waikato family, striving to make every little thing better every day.
