The Salvation Army has been selected as the Match Day Charity for:

Highlanders vs Waratahs on Sunday 22 May at the Forsyth Barr Stadium, Dunedin.


Highlander’s CEO Roger Clark commented,

“It is really important from a Highlanders perspective that we are actively supportive of our community and partnering with The Salvation Army allows us do this in a meaningful way. Everybody has felt the strain of COVID within our lives and people are doing it tough. We encourage our fans to get behind this initiative and help us help The Salvation this Red Shield Appeal.” 

Hurricanes CEO Avan Lee said,

“Our partnership with The Salvation Army means we can assist fellow Kiwis who are struggling. Our community is incredibly important to us and helping the Salvation Army raise money and awareness is something we take pride in – we encourage everyone to support the Red Shield Appeal. This appeal also offers fans the opportunity to win ‘money can’t buy’ experiences, with some of the biggest names in rugby.” 

Support includes auctions of four 'Money Can't Buy experiences' from each team on Trade Me, so fans can be part of the support for the Red Shield Appeal.
