"Thank you so much to NTCC Ali, the board and team for re-connecting businesses with grass root communities through the Community Impact category in the Business Awards. This category recognises, not only the significance of profit and charity sectors working together, but also the founding vision of Multicultural Nelson Tasman coming to fruition - growing and nurturing ethnic migrants and resettled communities who are vital contributors to the wellbeing of our socio-economic fibre weaved together. From these strong, resilient ethnic communities emerge creative leaders capable of co-designing future regional growth, enterprising small businesses and artisans that enriches the region's vibrant diversity. Thank you heaps NTCC, sponsors (Bowater Hyundai, Nelson Pine Industries, et.al), businesses, government and community support. You rock!!"
