Nine Upper North Island not-for-profit organisations will soon be watching digital TV after winning a Going Digital competition.
Variety - The Children's Charity, Deaf Aotearoa - Whangarei Branch, Mid North Womens Aid and Refuge, Aged Widowed and Invalids, Helensville Women and Family Centre, Waikato Migrant Centre, De Paul House (Emergency Housing for Families), Birkdale Community House and Te Manawanui Trust have all won the necessary equipment and installation required to make their existing TV go digital.
Greg Harford, Going Digital National Manager said the competition was established in collaboration with Hills Signal Master to help not-for-profi organisations in the community that used a TV but may not have the funds to buy the equipment to go digital.
The competition required organisations that entered to explain in 50 words or less why they needed the help to go digital.
Previous winners include Upper Hutt Baptist Church, Pomare Community House in Lower Hutt, the Arlington Community room in Wellington, YWCA of Whanganui, Hanson Court Community Centre in Wellington, Gladstone School in Masterton, Wainuiomata Community Centre, the Hastings Hearing Association, CCS Disabillity Otago, Brook Waimarama Sanctuary in Nelson and the Paparoa Range School on the West Coast.
The national competition is now closed.
