The successful projects from this first round who have been offered funds are:
- Castle Hill Community Association (Canterbury)
- Project Rameka (Tasman)
- Mana Cycle Group (Wellington)
- Manawatu Mountain Bike Club (Manawatu-Wanganui)
- Te Miro Mountain Bike Club (Waikato)
Congratulations to everyone at those projects!
I’d also like to take the chance to say a big thanks to our Advisory Board of Nessa, Zane and Gaz for the time they have taken to review each of the applications, never an easy process but one made all the much easier by the quality of the applications that we received in this first round.
Thank you as well to everyone who has already mad a financial contribution to Trail Fund NZ, whether a donation directly or through purchasing a t-shirt or a hoodie. Our ability to support projects like these is as a direct result of your contribution.
We will start to share some of the details of the different projects with you over the next few weeks so you can all hear more of the backstory to these great projects.
Our next funding round will close in July 2013 so keep an ear out for that if you think we might be able to help your project. You can keep in touch with us on that via our Facebook page and / or our mailing list.
