Crusaders keep environment in mind<br />

PRE-TRAINING rituals were a<br />

little different for some Crusaders<br />

players who kept both the<br />

community and the environment<br />

in mind during a visit to Trees for<br />

Canterbury.<br />

Crusaders sponsor Aotea Electric<br />

Canterbury invited players<br />

George Bridge, Tom Sanders and<br />

Nathan Vela along with them<br />

during a visit to the non-profit<br />

charity.<br />

The players rolled up their<br />

sleeves in the potting shed and<br />

set about planting saplings ready<br />

for the next community tree<br />

planting events.<br />

They also helped water the new<br />

plants and moved them out into<br />

the nursery.<br />

Trees of Canterbury has a<br />

strong ethos to employ, educate<br />

and regenerate.<br />

It has established a community<br />

for people with disabilities and<br />

at-risk youth, providing an environment<br />

of acceptance as well<br />

as support and training for selfdevelopment<br />

and self-esteem.<br />

Decked in Crusaders shirts,<br />

the Trees For Canterbury team<br />

were “very excited” to meet and<br />

work with the three visiting team<br />

members.<br />

There was lots of laughter,<br />

friendly questions and happy<br />

banter.<br />

“You can’t believe how excited<br />

everyone has been this week<br />

about the Crusaders visit. It will<br />

literally make the year for some<br />

of these guys,” manager Steve<br />

Bush said.<br />

Bush explained to the players<br />

how the charity worked and<br />

about the 12 community planting<br />

events arranged throughout the<br />

year, with the ultimate goal of<br />

planting 2,000,000 native trees<br />

across Canterbury.<br />

The players were shown around<br />

the site, with the team eager to<br />

take photos and engage with<br />

players. New friendships were<br />

made and the visit ended with<br />

hugs and signed shirts.<br />

Aotea Electric Canterbury<br />

sponsor both the Crusaders and<br />

Trees for Canterbury charity. It<br />

was heart-warming to involve<br />

both parties in such a positive,<br />

upbeat and memorable visit.<br />

We chose Cameron because of his sales record as No1 in NZ and he was<br />

recommended to us. We were not disappointed with our decision. He<br />

treated us as though we were his only customer. Always giving us time to<br />

consider everything and not once did we feel rushed when he was phoning<br />

or visiting us.<br />

We feel privileged to have had Cameron sell our property<br />

and are delighted with the outcome.<br />
