Ben Day from BMINZ dropped off the Safer Teams Health and Safety Package for Vector Group Charitable Trust today. Giles and Hayley from BMINZ have been a huge support to us as a trust and as individuals. We are eternally grateful for all their hard work in producing a tailor-made-AAA-Class health and safety package. BMINZ has had a co-working space with Vector Group Charitable Trust since they began their youth and community development projects. BMINZ moved with VGCT from their previous location on Jellicoe Street in Te Puke to 16 Oxford Street, just around the corner.

We would also like this opportunity to congratulate BMINZ for acquiring their PTE credentials and really look forward to working together on training programs and initiatives in our area. It has been a long journey for BMINZ and so happy for them. BMINZ has been a support in the area of business acumen, planning, the infamous good ideas shelving haha including being a positive and savvy sounding board.

A big thankyou from our Vector Group Charitable Trust team goes out to Giles Day, Ben Day and Hayley McIsaac. So proud and thankful for your help and investedness in Te Puke’s youth development.
