Tal­ented bunch given sports gear, cloth­ing

Matamata Chronicle - - Sport - By TERESA HATTAN

Ev­ery year Fit­ness Locker likes to give back.

Fit­ness Locker’s Ben Eitel­berg and Erin Fur­ness were at Te Kura o Wa­haroa last month pre­sent­ing staff and stu­dents with much- needed sports gear and cloth­ing.

Both Eitel­berg and Fur­ness are re­spected ath­letes in their own right and now coach and train up- and- com­ing sports stars.

The

do­nated

gear, some

of which came from the Mata­mata com­mu­nity, will be of great as­sis­tance to the en­tire Wa­haroa com­mu­nity.

Sport Waikato En­er­gizer Eruera Keepa said he could see the tal­ent in the stu­dents at the kura.

‘‘Now they’re not hin­dered by a lack of gear,’’ he said.

The do­na­tion from Fit­ness Locker is run in con­junc­tion with Sport Waikato and is now in its fourth year.

Six Waikato schools have ben­e­fited from the gen­eros­ity.
