Macaulay Motors is proud to be the driving force behind the SIT Zero Fees Southland Sharks since 2010! We're pleased to continue supporting the team by supplying vehicles to help them get around. Having players driving sign-written vehicles around town also allows them to promote the Southland Sharks’ brand in the community.
The Southland Youth Futures programme was established in 2014 and Macaulay Motors are thrilled to have been one of the founding members. As part of this programme we visit schools, promoting career pathways in the primary sector to Year 10 and 11 students; conducting mock interviews with students; arranging on-site visits to see our workshops in action; and providing information about on-the-job training such as through an apprenticeship. We believe we have a corporate responsibility to promote our industry to youth, especially considering the projected labour shortages in the sector for the Southern region.
Another event we love being involved with is the annual ILT Kidzone Festival, held in the July school holidays. We support the festival with a new branded Mazda vehicle, such as the Mazda CX-5 used for the 2019 festival. The organisers are able to use this in preparation of, and throughout the event, to get around while also promoting the festival.
Macaulay Mazda are delighted to have been involved with Shakespeare in the Park for over ten years, supplying a vehicle for the lead actors to use. This sign-written vehicle acts as a moving billboard for the show in the weeks leading up to the event, and provides transport for the cast around town and throughout the packing in and out process during the season.
At Macaulay Mazda we believe it is important to support the arts and cultural events in our community. One of Southland’s largest events is the annual Southland Arts Festival, which we support with the use of a new Mazda. This signwritten vehicle acts as a moving billboard in the lead-up to the Festival, as well as providing the organisers with the transport they need to plan and execute the event successfully.
Macaulay Motors have renewed their partnership with the Greenacres Country Club as a premium sponsor, signing up for a further three years. The Club, in Steel Road, offers golfers both an 18 hole parkland course and an all-weather driving range. We are proud to have the opportunity of supporting local sport such as this.
Macaulay Mazda were thrilled to be involved in the TREEmendous Event at Aparima College in Riverton in August last year alongside the Mazda NZ TREEmendous team and volunteers from the Riverton School community.
