Auckland Business Chamber Chief Executive Michael Barnett congratulated Skydive Auckland on their success. “They have used the awards in the past to challenge their plan and direction and have been successful. This is a story of belief and an ability to adapt and they have been rewarded with the Supreme Business Excellence Award,” he said.

Skydive Auckland - Keeping New Zealand Beautiful!

Last week was Clean Up Week 2020 so we rounded up some volunteers to go out and pick up rubbish and help to Keep NZ Beautiful. https://www.knzb.org.nz/clean-up-week-2020/

Every year Skydive Auckland takes part in the G.J. Gardner Clean Up Week. Volunteering with Keep New Zealand Beautiful is a fun and satisfying way to get involved in the community. If everyone helps a little then it makes a big difference overall!

New Zealand is precious, and everyone who lives and travels here has a responsibility to look after it. We are committed to care for New Zealand, for now and for future generations. https://tiakinewzealand.com/ #TiakiPromise

Skydive Auckland - Helping Our Community

Skydive Auckland has been getting involved with Eat My Lunch and volunteering to help feed kiwi kids. Our awesome team have been delivering lunches to different schools around Auckland. 

Eat My Lunch works on the basis of Buy One Give One. Every lunch that a kiwi purchases means they can give a lunch to a Kiwi kid who would otherwise go without. It’s a little gesture that’s had a great impact for so many Kiwi kids. With a good lunch in their tummies, the kids do better in so many ways from helping them focus on learning to simply just putting a smile on their faces. Find out more about Eat My Lunch here: https://eatmylunch.nz/
