Our Community Support
Our members believe in giving back, which is why they’re proud to support many worthwhile causes and projects all over New Zealand.
Apparelmaster Sponsorship And Community Support Initiatives
Every Apparelmaster business in New Zealand is locally owned and operated. Owners and their teams understand the impact their businesses have on their community and aim to take positive action where they can, at both a national and community level.
Child Cancer Foundation
Since 2010, Apparelmaster has been a key supporter of the Child Cancer Foundation. The Child Cancer Foundation assists over 900 families around New Zealand at any one time. Each year the Apparelmaster Group endeavours to raise funds to help the Foundation provide practical and emotional support to children with cancer and their families. In the short time this relationship has been in place, Apparelmaster is proud to have donated over $25,000 to the Child Cancer Foundation and looks forward to contributing more in the years ahead.
- In 2010, a charity auction was undertaken at the Apparelmaster Annual Conference. Later in the year, Apparelmaster conducted a nationwide survey and donated 20c for every customer survey that was completed and returned.
- In 2011, Apparelmaster teams around the country undertook various activities to raise funds during Child Cancer Support Month (March). The top fundraising Apparelmaster team was announced at the Annual Apparelmaster Conference, where the inaugural trophy was awarded to Pryors Apparelmaster, who raised over $2,400 dollars during the month.
- Apparelmaster members also donate prizes to be auctioned and put their hands in the air to bid at an auction held during the Annual Apparelmaster Awards evening.

Apparelmaster Christchurch, Supporting Young Netballers
Apparelmaster Christchurch are proud supporters of the under 10s netball team The Little Divas, who have taken on the challenge of playing teams of older (and taller!) girls throughout the season. To recognise the great effort the girls have made, Apparelmaster Christchurch has bought them new skorts and donated $150 toward their club fundraiser.
