Community is key to a vibrant and thriving city. Our team at Harris Tate go an extra step to ensure we are actively involved in what makes Tauranga tick.

We are people just like you, so we believe in the importance of supporting community programmes and events – whether it is an individual’s sporting goal or a charitable cause.

A day off for a good cause

We are always focused on actions that are good for our society, whether giving back or getting out in the community. That is why throughout the year our team members are encouraged to take a day’s paid leave, to help out within the community or a specific organisation of their choice.

With about 30 staff at Harris Tate, this equates to about 180 hours of voluntary work dedicated to helping and increasing civic pride within Tauranga.

Acorn Foundation Wills Month – September 2022

Harris Tate is proud to be supporting the 2022 Acorn Foundation Wills Month this September. We will be waiving the fee for a simple change to an existing Will for clients who would like to include a bequest, however big or small, to the Acorn Foundation.

Ngā Tohu Toi Art Awards

We were proud to be a sponsor of the inaugural Ngā Tohu Toi (Art awards) event established by Te Tuhi Mareikura Trust for Ngā Uri Iwi o te Rohe o Tauranga Moana (descendants of iwi of Tauranga Moana) and held on our first Matariki public holiday (Friday 24 June 2022).

Leone Farquhar, Director of our Māori Legal Team, attended the event and presented the award for Te Uta ki Ngā Taiohi o Tauranga Moana (Contribution to Youth) to Te Kahu Rolleston of Ngāi Te Rangi (via his māmā). She was joined at the event with her husband Stu, our Practice Manager Aroha Daniels, and her husband Rawiri.

It was an awesome event celebrating amazing people from right here in Tauranga Moana who are doing some truly amazing mahi out there. We were humbled and privileged to be given the opportunity to support the Trust and look forward to an ongoing relationship with the Trust going forward.
