Fancy a dip?

Take time out with whānau at Splash Palace this weekend for Ngā Kete Mātauranga Pounamu Charitable Trust’s first ever Murihiku Manu Dive Bomb Event. Fun for the whole family including a paua diving competition and one, three, and five-metre dive bombs, a sausage sizzle and prize-giving at the conclusion of the event.

The event is being held in conjunction with Gambling Harm Awareness Week 2020, and is all about bringing whānau together.

Ngā Kete Mātauranga Pounamu Charitable Trust Gambling Harm health promotor Eru Loach said “This year has been tough on everyone. This event is to encourage our whānau to celebrate the things that keep us well; staying connected, supporting each other and enjoying time with whānau and friends.

“Gambling harm is in our communities and we want our whānau to look after each other and if required, to feel comfortable in contacting a specialist support service such as Ngā Kete Mātauranga Pounamu, Choice Not Chance or the Gambling Helpline. We’re there to help not only people who may gamble, but also affected others”.

ILT Foundation manager Lisa-Maree Fleck said – “we are committed to providing safe and enjoyable gaming venues.”

“Supporting Gambling Harm Awareness initiatives, like this whānau event is another way we can work together within our community to increase awareness that pathways to support are available within / at our venues.”

“Working together with a common purpose offers strong pathways from awareness to support getting meaningful results.”

Splash Palace aquatic services manager Peter Thompson said they were excited to be working with the ILT Foundation and Ngā Kete Mātauranga Pounamu Charitable Trust to run this event.

“These are extraordinary times and now more than ever bringing whanau and community together for an event that is both fun and promotes a meaningful message is something we’re really proud to be a part of.”

The event is being held on Saturday, September 5 2020 between 2pm-5pm at Invercargill’s Splash Palace. Online registrations are available at kaitahu.maori.nz

A small number of door registrations will be available.

This community event is proudly supported by ILT, ILT Foundation, Invercargill City Council, Splash Palace, Healthy Families and Ngā Kete Mātauranga Pounamu Charitable Trust and whatsoninvers.nz
