Tamaki Sports Academyoffers mentoring, coaching, and work experience to South Aucklandyouth who have dropped out of the mainstream school system but show some sporting talent.
A major fundraiser for the academy, and an excellent source of work experience for its members, is the free metal collection service they offer. They will pick up any old metal – computers, whiteware, roofing iron, metal piping, venetian blinds, batteries, car panels, cars, metal shelving, filing cabinets, machinery, lawnmowers, engines, and so on.
If you do have any metal rubbish to get rid of, they are keen to pick it up for you.
