Armstrong Downes Commercial (ADC) was very proud to be the major sponsor of TAKA Trust’s Hutt Valley Charity Golf Tournament 2021. TAKA Trust is a Hutt Valley-based charity, seeking to provide tamariki in our community with more opportunities. This includes more access to sports, technology, cultural events, modern learning, and the arts.
We are thrilled to announce that the golf tournament raised $21,027.00 for TAKA Trust. TAKA Trust will put all proceeds towards providing free bus trips for low decile schools. This will give over 2,500 experiences for kids to enrich their education and drive learning outside of the classroom.

The event took place at Shandon Golf Club in April, with 120 players. The day opened with a performance from Avalon Intermediate students, singing songs and a waiata to welcome everyone before teeing off.
At ADC’s hole 9, we ran a hole-in-one prize, challenging all players to get a hole-in-one to win a brand-new Mazda 2 GSX. It was a fun opportunity for players to enjoy a game of golf, get together with members of the community, friends, and colleagues, whilst making a meaningful difference in the lives of tamariki across the Hutt Valley.
The day ended with a dinner and an auction with some fantastic items such as:
- Lunch at the Portland Restaurant with Christian Cullen and Tana Umanga
- Feed a Family for a Week – donation of a My Food Bag voucher to a family in need
- V8 Mustang for a weekend & a weekend at Lemon Tree Cottage in Martinborough
- Tickets to the Hutt Valley Sports Awards
We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone involved in making the day a great one. Thank you to all the teams that played, sponsors of holes, volunteers, and to the team at TAKA Trust. Your generosity has gone back into the community, giving opportunities to thousands of deserving tamariki.
