The team here at Review would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to all the participants and supporters who contributed to the resounding success of the inaugural Peter Mitchell Memorial Golf Day at Windross Farm Golf Course.
Peter Mitchell, who passed away in 2022, has left a remarkable body of work and tirelessly gave his time to support start-up businesses and those wanting to further their industry skills. Always with a camera at hand, Peter reported on and supported the industries he felt so passionately about, and his legacy continues in the ethos of the business today.
From the very start of a spectacular day of golf (even the weather was kind), the event exemplified a shared purpose: we united to empower the next generation through the Kiwi Can programme and support upcoming rising stars in the grocery industry through the Peter Mitchell Memorial Scholarship. Cartoonist Darren Blomfield was also on hand courtesy of VIBE to record the day - caricatures of the golfers are on their way, but we couldn't resist featuring this one!
The remarkable generosity of suppliers, colleagues and friends and their enthusiastic support played a significant role in raising funds for the Kiwi Can programme and the Peter Mitchell Memorial Scholarship, with the funds raised throughout the day going to support the Kiwi Can programme to provide children with essential life skills. At the same time, the scholarship offers a fantastic opportunity for individuals seeking to enhance their knowledge and skills within the sector, fostering a spirit of growth and advancement.
The Peter Mitchell Memorial Scholarship lays the foundation for a legacy that will continue to inspire and uplift young talent in the industry for years to come.
As we reflect on the day's success, we are reminded of the impact that collective efforts can have in fostering meaningful change. The event's accomplishments are a testament to the generosity of our business community, and we remain committed to continuing to work in supporting the aspirations and dreams of our future leaders.
Entries will open in October for those rising stars in the industry wishing to apply to The Peter Mitchell Memorial Scholarship.
