The rural community of Mangatangi, nestled in the Firth of Thames, now has access to a swimming pool. The Mangatangi Primary School’s Home and School Committee fundraised for five years to raise one-third of the funding required to apply for a Lottery Community Facilities grant.
The swimming pool supports water safety for school children, and also brings together different generations from the local community in summer.
The Hamilton Community Operations teams support the Lottery Waikato Community Committee and four COGS committees serving communities and neighbourhoods across the Waikato:
- Hauraki COGS committee
- Waikato West COGS committee
- Kirikiriroa Hamilton COGS committee
- South Waikato COGS committee
The Rotorua team administer Lottery Marae Heritage and Facilities - this Fund is available for marae around the country.
