We have pleasure in announcing that Lamb & Hayward have added to their already impressive support for Canterbury Golf by taking on the corporate partner role for the new Futures Canterbury project.
The Futures Canterbury Selwyn Hub will provide fun golf events and learning opportunities for young people and families. It aims to capture the imagination of young people of all skill levels and backgrounds to be active for life, meet new friends, develop valuable life skills and provide opportunities for families to learn and play together. Young people and their parents can join and play at seven clubs. The participating clubs are Charteris Bay, Ellesmere Golf Club, Greendale Golf Club, Hororata, Lincoln Golf Club, McLeans Island Golf Club and Tai Tapu Golf Club. Other clubs may be added soon. It is also intended to add Hubs in Christchurch City and North Canterbury.
Stephen Parkyn (pictured right) CEO of Lamb & Hayward commented that “it is extremely important to encourage young people to get outside and become more active, the life lessons taught from golf and sport in general can have a really positive impact on shaping their future values”.
Lamb & Hayward is a proud supporter of Canterbury Golf, with an involvement that spans many years. It includes support for the Golf in Schools programme, Canterbury Strokeplay, the CGI Tour Championship, golf development, and now the Futures Canterbury programme. Their golf sponsorships are spread across a range of Canterbury Golf Club’s and include a number of tournaments each year.
They also contribute to Canterbury Bowls, and Riding for the Disabled. This commitment to sponsorship reflects their wish to contribute back into the local community. Lamb & Hayward is a long standing supporter of the Arts in Canterbury. Their sponsorship of the CSO Masterworks Series is a relationship that began with the orchestra in 1992.
