New Zealand’s northernmost rugby club is the first to earn itself over $1,000 as part of the Northland-wide ‘Take 2 for The Team’ initiative that sees sporting clubs and schools earn $10 for every vaccination they introduce to any one of the eight Māori health providers serving the region.

Te Aupōuri Rugby Club north of Kaitaia has not just passed the $1,000 milestone, it has smashed it. With 429 of its members, their whānau and friends vaccinated so far by local Māori health provider Whakawhiti Ora Pai, the club has earned a whopping $4,290.
