A membership organisation for independent electrician and plumber trades, Level Group ANZ, is rolling up its sleeves to lend a hand to a community group in Queenstown this September.

As part of its annual conference, Level Group has up to 50 attendees ready to help a community group in Queenstown with any general trades jobs that need to be done.

“We’re calling this part of our conference Local Impact,” says Level Group GM Matt Davies. 

“We’re asking for community groups in Queenstown to nominate themselves via our website and let us know what they need. It could be what we’re known for - electrical and plumbing, but not just that. Our team is multi-talented and so it could be a building job, or a lick of paint, or yard work. So long as we can get the work done on 4 Sept, and the location is in Queenstown or within an hour’s drive, we’re keen.”

“We want as many charities as possible to apply and have made the process simple - and yes, all our time, goods and services are donated with all the necessary planning and signoffs”

“We’re partnering with Jennifer Belmont at Wakatipu Community Foundation to help us reach over 100 regional charities and their networks so more community groups can apply for the help.”

“With Jennifer’s expertise in the region, we’re expecting a lot of submissions to come through. It’ll be a hard decision, but we’ve created a judging panel with Jennifer, and set some criteria to help us select the right project”

“It probably goes without saying that mental health challenges in the trades industry are rife and extremely concerning. And so while we are casting the net far and wide across the region a community project that answers a call for help around mental health and is beneficial for youth is preferred”

“We’re excited to support this innovative conference-adjacent initiative from LEVEL ANZ, and spread the word far and wide among our deserving and hardworking network of charitable causes big and small in the Wakatipu region - especially at such a tough time for many” says Wakatipu Community Foundation CEO, Jennifer Belmont.

“We’d love to see other businesses follow Level ANZ’s lead and consider adding a fitting initiative to give back to communities all across Aotearoa”

“Queenstown isn’t all glitter and glam. There’s real need down here, and we’re buoyed by Level Group bringing this marvellous and generous concept to our community first”.

Level Group are asking for nominations to come through via their website levelgroup.nz/localimpact by end of day May 31. Level Group ANZ Local Impact Day is set for 4 September 2024.
