Spark New Zealand : chips in for big beach dream

02/10/2016 | 04:05pm US/Eastern

Acrowdfunding campaign to buy a pristine South Island beach for public ownership has been boosted by a $20,000 pledge from Spark.

Christchurch man Duane Major set up a Givealittle page this week seeking contributions for the 7ha private beach in Abel Tasman National Park’s Awaroa Inlet.

The beach is on the market for $2 million. As of yesterday, more than 5000 pledges totalled over $300,000.

Spark managing director Simon Moutter said $2 million was a “big ask for a small country”.

“We wanted to chip in and do our bit, and we’re encouraging other New Zealand businesses to join us. New Zealand only has a couple of weeks to secure this beautiful beach.’’

Givealittle is owned by The Spark Foundation, a charitable branch of Spark New Zealand. The company has also offered legal support, should the campaign move to tendering for the land, Mr Moutter said.

The Department of Conservation has expressed interest in incorporating the site into the national park.
