Congratulations to our Bunnings Home Ground Heroes!​​​​​​​

Bunnings Warehouse have partnered up with Touch NZ to celebrate and support local heroes in the touch community – the managers, coaches and organisers who put in the hard mahi, week in and week out.  

In the first year of the Bunnings Home Ground Heroes initiative, we received 120 nominations, representing over half of Touch modules in New Zealand, and showing the real need for support in the game and those who make it great. 

Five deserving heroes were selected to receive a $5,000 award, to be reinvested into the touch community by covering the cost of membership fees, uniforms, team travel, or other Touch Rugby gear. 


Congratulations to: 

Jenny Turner 

Luke Chapman 

Nazea Silbery 

Karen Gallagher
