Hawke's Bay Rugby Union donation to Nourished for Nil

Off the back of the success of the charity jersey last year, we opened nominations of local charities to the Hawke’s Bay public to support another charity with this initiative. After many nominations, Nourished for Nil was chosen as the charity that the jersey would support this year.

The Magpies ran out in the charity jersey supporting Nourished for Nil for the first home game of the new Bunnings NPC season, against Otago. This game saw the Magpies take a 34-10 win, with the team also defending the Ranfurly Shield for the 3rd time in 2021 at the time of the game.

The jerseys were sold at Stirling Sports in Napier and Hastings, and the playing 23 were auctioned off on Trade Me. As a result of this, the Hawke’s Bay Rugby Union and principal sponsor Total Oil New Zealand are delighted to announce that $10,642.17 is being donated to Nourished for Nil.
