The Sport Wellington staff like a good burger as much as anyone else, especially during VWOAP! So it was great to head out as a team to WHG's bar Munchen on the waterfront and try their Die Königin Burger. Might be something you'd like to do this weekend after sport 😋 #SportWgtnteam Wellington On a Plate

It is with great sadness that we bid farewell to a man selflessly dedicated to Wellington Basketball. Justin Toebes has been involved in the sport for over 4 decades and was the deserved recipient of the 2017 Lifetime Contribution to Sport award. Thoughts are with Wellington Saints and Justin's family.

Kia ora Sport Wellington We were wondering if you could help our two Year 4 classes at Wellesley College in Lower Hutt. We have started a project focusing on mental health. We are doing this to fundraise to buy BIKES!!! for a nearby local school in need, Randwick School. We love bikes too and feel every NZ kid deserves to have their own bike. As we are only allowing people to donate $1 per person, the only way we can succeed is if people help spread what it is we are doing, we were hoping that you may be able to support us by posting a link to our project on your Facebook page to help us get the support we need. This video on our Facebook page will give you a great idea of what we are doing: https://www.facebook.com/donateadollardaynz/videos/540286476366293/ We really are having trouble getting the support our awesome project needs to succeed. If there is anything else you can help us with in regard to our project, or if you need further information, please contact us through Facebook, or you can email us at donateadollarday@wellesley.school.nz Thank you!
