Our Charities

Taranaki Rugby is proud of our association with two very special charities. As a community organisation any operating surplus goes straight back into growing rugby in our awesome province. TRFU has a strong relationship with our official charities Big Brothers Big Sisters and Hospice Taranaki. We work in partnership to support and promote their causes wherever possible.

Big Brothers Big Sisters

Big Brothers Big Sisters matches children and young people aged 6 through 18 with mentors in professionally supported one-to-one relationships.

The young people served by the Big Brothers Big Sisters programme are among New Zealand’s most vulnerable. The goal is to provide quality, committed mentoring wherever there is a need for the programme.

Hospice Taranaki

Hospice Taranaki is committed to providing the best quality palliative care services to the people of Taranaki, so that the time patients have left with their loved ones is the best it can be.

The team at Hospice Taranaki do a fantastic job providing much needed support to those enduring the most challenging of times.
