We are Locals and like to give back to this great community that we live in

We support our community in many different ways, take a look at some of the groups that we help below.

If you are running an event and would like our support, please contact Colleen.

Some of the ways we can help; we have a pit tent available to groups free of charge, we sponsor sports teams kit, donate to good causes, "lend" forklifts to community groups, donate equipment to community groups, sponsor motor sport events - please email Colleen at colleen@nelsonforktrucks.co.nz.

Local kids in need

We have sponsored the day out for Foster kids and families in 2014 & again in 2015.  Hope you all have a bit of fun.

Lions Club of Nelson - we recently supported a couple of kids along to a show

We support this local community event by providing our Pit Tent each year and support advertising.

Cycling Veledrome - Saxton's Field

Another great asset to add to the Saxton complex.  Our son Layton represented our region at Track Cycling Nationals in Invercargill 2010 - wow these guys go fast.  Also a great safe way to get in some cycling off our busy roads.

The Brook Waimarama Santuary - lets protect it

NFL sponsored a fencepost to protect this great asset.  What a special place - lets get it protected for future generations to enjoy. 

Kids and Safety

We sponsored a safety message in the Henley School homework books.  Our children went to local schools and I remember well the homework books.  Safety is also something that is important to us here at Nelson Forktrucks Ltd.

Brain Injured Children Trust - the annual "Going Banana's Show'

NFL sponsored a couple of kids and their caregivers along to this show at Nayland College

Great Taste Trial - Nelson Cycleway

We sponsored ten metres of this great asset to our region.  I use this track every week, our staff often enjoy it and I certainly promote this asset to all of our visitors and newbies to the area.  Also helps that we have such great weather to enjoy it in!
