As a family business we’re all about being involved in the communities within which we live, work and play. McFall Fuel look to support community groups in a variety of ways.
Supporting staff and customers who live and work in the communities we deal with is a real positive. The Calf Club or Pet Days usually held over September through to November are really enjoyed because the youngsters go to a lot of effort for the day. It is often a community fundraiser as well.
The McFall Fuel Team cook for the families staying at the Domain Road House and/or Grafton Mews in Auckland each year. This staff driven initiative came about because of what a staff member experienced in their family’s time at Ronald McDonald House while they supported a family member in Starship Hospital.
Volunteers come from the McFall Fuel Team to help with the preparation of the food, the cooking of the meal, and the clean up as well as often supplying home cooking. Customers and suppliers have also offered their help and servcies. Mount New World, Mount Paper Plus and Col's Butchery in Mount Maunganui make regular donations to support this humbling team effort.
McFall Fuel is proud to be recognized as a friend of the Trustpower TECT Rescue Helicopter and are the supplier of the Rapid Response vehicle for the team so that they can to get to emergencies quickly and safely. It is such an invaluable community service and just like so many other businesses should the situation arise, people in urgent need can be reached quickly and treated immediately which is important. The great majority of the McFall Fuel staff cover many kilometres each day to reach customers who are often working in quite remote locations. The service provides these communities and businesses that we work with and in, with that safety net when accidents occur and time is critical.
McFall Fuel have supported the Life Education Trust in this area for a number of years. We fuel the teacher’s vehicle and the mobile classroom each year to help with the costs of running such an effective educational programme.
McFall Fuel in partnership with the BP 2go Summit provide the fuel for the vehicles to collect, deliver and run the various activities that Good Neighbour provide within the community.
The Good Neighbour Trust is working to make a positive difference within the Tauranga Community. Building better relationships through simple acts of kindness and generosity sees the Trust involved in food rescue, community gardens, mowing lawns, and getting firewood as part of their commitment to helping neighbours transform their communities.
McFall Fuel proudly support a number of conferences and long standing events.
Involvement with the Forest Industry Safety Summit Conference began in 2015. McFall Fuel are very keen to work with the Forest Managers and Owners, along with their forestry customers to ensure that we achieve the desired health, safety, and environmental practices that are the best possible for the forestry industry.
This Conference also aligns extremely well with the McFall Fuel Value – Zero Harm – No Accidents, No Harm to People, and No Harm to the Environment.
McFall Fuel has supported this historic community event for a number of years. The long term relationship sees a race sponsored annually. The iconic racing club is the oldest running racing club in New Zealand. 150 years with the racing only interrupted in five of those years — two world wars, the polio epidemic, and the weather.
The Pirongia Boxing Day races have seen crowds of up to 15 000 on days when the weather is kind. The club has a very dedicated band of locals who are aiming to celebrate their 150th anniversary in 2015. This is the year following the 2014 commemoration of the Waipa District 150 year anniversary which saw the Pirongia Boxing Day races mark the end of the celebrations.
McFall Fuel are proud sponsors of the Kihikihi Speedway. The volunteers put a great deal of time into making the track and surrounds look great for both the teams who race and the fans.
This is a longstanding relationship with another family based company. The Agricultural Contractors who attend get the benefit of industry updates as well as exposure to top flight speakers and entertainers.
Like all good families McFall Fuel offer sponsorship opportunities for staff and their immediate families.
McFall Fuel are so proud to be a sponsor of Rebecca Petch in her quest to become a World Champion. She is currently ranked World 7 on UCI points for elite women. These results have seen her selected to be apart of the High Performance Program as a Carded Athlete! The young athlete is now challenging Sarah Walker in races and is learning with each one. Like any young athlete taking a win from a champion is exciting and Rebecca is beginning to manage that. We look forward to seeing her reach the heights in the future.
Proudly sponsoring these young racers in Stock Cars and a Saloon car.
McFall Fuel began supporting Luuka Jones a year prior to the Olympics in 2016 by helping with her travel to training. The determination to be better for Rio saw four years of dedicated training to stay at the forefront in the K1W event and Luuka won silver at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 stunning not only her competitors but also many New Zealanders. Having finished 14th in London, the gains from the 21st at the Beijing Olympics at the age of 19 did not fulfil Luuka’s dream but Rio saw the success she wanted. Currently, Luuka is preparing for the Olympic Games in Japan in 2020.
Kieran McPherson won the Pan American Xterra Tour at the Tour finale in Ogden Utah in 2018. It topped off a fine season for the young New Zealander who raced across 8 different countries with 3 wins and 9 podiums over 11 races. An outstanding achievement. McFall Fuel has been proud to support Kieran since 2013 as he has worked towards this challenging and clearly magnificent result in a very demanding sport.
