Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By MATTHEW DAL­LAS

Porirua win­ners of Welling­ton Gold Awards, Mana Re­cov­ery and Adrenalin For­est, were pre­sented with their ac­co­lades by Mayor Nick Leggett last week.

The re­gional busi­ness awards were held last month.

Mana Re­cov­ery, which sup­ports in­tel­lec­tu­ally dis­abled work­ers into paid jobs and runs re­cy­cling de­pot Trash Palace, took out the Green Gold cat­e­gory, while Aotea- based high- wire ad­ven­ture park Adrenalin For­est topped the Vi­brant Gold sec­tion.

When pre­sent­ing Mana Re­cov­ery gen­eral man­ager El­iz­a­beth Coluzzi and Adrenalin For­est di­rec­tor Jean Cail­l­a­bet with framed cer­tifi­cates on July 10, Mr Leggett praised them for their busi­ness suc­cess and the pos­i­tive recog­ni­tion it brought to the city.

Both Ms Coluzzi and Mr Cail­l­a­bet said the awards capped off an amaz­ing year for their ven­tures and they were very proud to be based in Porirua.

Ms Coluzzi said she re­cently recorded a ra­dio pro­mo­tion for the Welling­ton Air­port community awards, at which the busi­ness won a cat­e­gory in 2012, and the script re­ferred to ‘‘Mana Re­cov­ery, Welling­ton’’.

‘‘I told them I’m not go­ing to say that – it’s ‘Mana Re­cov­ery, Porirua’.’’

Good as gold: Claim­ing their Welling­ton Gold Awards, Adren­a­line For­est di­rec­tor Jean Cail­l­a­bet and Mana Re­cov­ery gen­eral man­ager El­iz­a­beth Coluzzi, with Porirua mayor Nick Leggett and Gold Awards di­rec­tor Gayle Page.
