Your WOW Award
Darren Engelbrecht was approached to support the project, and he has been one of the main drivers and organisers in getting the right people and equipment to install walkways and lighting scaffolds for the group, a massive undertaking made all the more difficult by an early start in freezing temperatures.
While there are many people who helped with the project, Darren and his family were nominated as among those who go out of their way to assist local events, and it was hoped he would accept the award on behalf of those involved. Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
