New Zealand Home Loans in the Community

At New Zealand Home Loans our Business Owners are part of the local community and love to support events that make their community a better place to live in and that they also have a personal interest in.

Below is a selection of sponsorships that have been undertaken over the past twelve months and also some that we have coming up in the near future.


Kids – have you ever wondered if your Dad can hula-hoop? Are you keen to put Mum’s three-legged skills to the test? Then New Zealand Home Loans XRACE series could be your chance to find out!

The family adventure race series sees kids team up with Mum, Dad, or a trusted adult to complete 10 mystery challenges against the clock. Think scrambling over a huge inflatable obstacle course, navigating with a blindfold or painting a Kiwiana masterpiece.
XRACE may be mentally and physically challenging, but it isn’t hard. The challenges are designed so that any family can take part.
Children must be aged between 7 and 14 on race day, while kids 6 and under can compete in the Nippers category.

The 2016 New Zealand Home Loans XRACE series kicks off in Whangarei on the 19th February. For more information or to register your team, visit www.xrace.co.nz



A worldwide phenomenon, parkrun is a free, weekly, timed 5km run on some of the most scenic courses in the world. New Zealand parkrun had its inaugural start in Lower Hutt, Wellington on the 5th May 2012. Since then 5 more have been added throughout New Zealand, including two in Auckland, one in Porirua, one in Hamilton and one in Dunedin, with still more in the pipeline.

Paul Sinton-Hewitt who started his 'parkrun' phenomena in 2004 at his local park near Twickenham, could not have predicted how something so simple could evolve into a way of life for so many. It's just mates meeting for a run, but that's exactly how Noel and Lian De Charmoy met Paul 30 years ago now, in Johannesburg. As old running mates and friends it was easy to keep in touch, even in separate hemispheres, so when approached to help get 'parkrun' New Zealand on the map, Lian agreed. With the support from Noel, plus their daughters Caitlin and Kelly, it should prove to be a welcome feature in the community.

​“We have found from other parkruns that there is a real mix of people that come to run and that they all enjoy the fact that it occurs every weekend, is well organized, social and free. All you have to do is register online and all of your times are recorded so you can track how well you are progressing.” said Lian De Charmoy of parkrun NZ.
