Nominations sought for 2018 Tairawhiti Men of the Year

Tauawhi Men's Centre, in conjunction with Family Works Tairawhiti and Presbyterian Support East Coast, is calling for nominations for the fourth annual Tairawhiti Men of the Year Awards, to be held in Gisborne on Friday, 15 June.

Nominations are being sought from people recognising men in Tairawhiti who go the extra mile in any sector of the community, including Arts, Business, Sport, Industry, Health or Education.

“We are particularly looking for men who value children, young people and their family/whanau,” Tauawhi Men’s Centre Coordinator, Tim Marshall says.

“They’re the men that mentor other men and invest time and energy back into their field or sector.”

The successful nominees will be recognised at the Men of the Year awards ceremony to be held at the Emerald Hotel in Gisborne. Tickets are open to the public and are available to purchase for $60 from Family Works Tairawhiti, 141 Bright St or email
