Jude Wakely nominated St. Patrick's Gold junior netball team because...

"They are all girls who just love, ooze, breath netball. They have lost by unbelievable amount of points in the last 4 (all) games of their season but still turn up week after week with a smile on their dials. This game they won finally and oozed passion and pride - dedicating it to all their whanau supporters who were willing them to win just one game! They deserve a boost if confidence to find success for their dedication! Please!"

Unison's Greatest Supporter's Hit the Radio Sound Waves

July 20, 2015

Unison’s Greatest Supporter’s for July, Ella-Michaela Good and Henry Massingham, will be heard across Hawke’s Bay, Rotorua and Taupo this month, after recording a radio ad part of their mission for July.

Ella-Michaela Good, who plays hockey for the Te Mata Red Rockets and Henry Massingham from the Havelock North 9th grade Kings junior rugby team, was asked to help Unison record a series of radio ads which tell Unison’s customers ways that they can get prepared to cope during a power outage.

Last Friday, both winners met at Mediaworks in Hastings, where they had a quick practice of their scripts before stepping foot in a real-life recording studio to record their ads!

Both winners did such an amazing job - we can't wait to share the finished ads with you all!

Check out the photos of our winners in action below!
