Sir John Kirwan Fundraising Auction for Mental Health

What an amazing night! Archibalds and Land Rover have joined forces with Sir John Kirwan on his Mitey Drive to support mental health education in our primary schools, transforming the lives of young New Zealanders.

To raise funds for the cause, Archibalds hosted a successful auction night with Sir John Kirwan right here at our Land Rover showroom.

We heard a few words of wisdom from Sir John Kirwan, Tim Corbett (CEO of Mitey Foundation), and Steve Kenchington (CEO of Land Rover NZ ) about the Mitey Foundation, Land Rover’s involvement, and why this is so important to have in our primary schools to support mental health education of young New Zealanders.

To end the evening we launched the new Range Rover, ‘The Most Desirable Range Rover Ever’, which wowed the crowd and attracted the attention of our guests with its remarkable features.

A huge thank you to our generous sponsors who have stepped up to support our night with highly desirable auction items. This event would not have been successful without your incredibly generous action and we thank all of those who have partnered with us and made all of this possible.

We express deep gratitude to those individuals and businesses who have partnered with us and made all of this possible. With all that is taking place at this time, being able to offer something for the auction is an incredibly generous action that is worthy of acknowledgment and not to be overlooked.

Please help us to thank the following businesses by considering them when you’re next looking for a restaurant venue, a holiday, a luxury treat, and more, and pass their names onto others.

Thank you to our heroes…
