Community effort for carpet


When Nuki’s Taupo¯ Boxing Gym needed new carpet, it was a community effort that pitched in to help. Thanks to joint sponsorship from Total Oil and Mitre 10 Mega along with a generous discount from Alan Robertson of Harrisons Carpet Taupo¯ , the area where the boxing ring had previously had pride of place has now been replaced by a large carpeted area. Roy Bowers and Gavin Nicholson of Nuki’s organised the carpet which Total Oil and Mitre 10 paid $2500 each for, and Harrisons Carpet Taupo¯ supplied the carpet at a discount and paid for the installation. Roy says the project is a community effort and the carpet has made it a flexible space which can be used for different purposes. It’s not only boxers who will benefit. The gym is a community facility which is also used by up to 200 people.
