A huge congratulations to Wayne and Kate from Engraving Systems. These local legends are a finalist in the Prospa Local Business Hero Awards.
Now they need your vote to give them a chance to take home a prize package worth $10,000!
Good on you, and good luck, Wayne and Kate. Thanks for bringing joy to your community.
Nominated by Jake De Geest from Whangarei: "My nomination is for Engraving Systems in Whangarei. Wayne and Kate (the owners) have been trying to support all the locals' sports clubs and businesses with great service and going that extra mile to honestly help. Wayne is also an extroverted performer and has given his time to clubs and organisations in Whangarei free of charge to play music and MC events so they can get some money back into their coffers and stay afloat in a most difficult year. He really has brought some life back into the community and although he will disagree with me he should be acknowledged and rewarded for all the hard work he does."
