Graham Livingston, from Mr Rental in Port Rd Whangarei, is a good citizen doing a good dead, there is no other way to say it. After a chance meeting with RLN General Manager, Alex Smits they got talking about Rugby League and the topic of conversation got on to the RLN Scott Electrical Premiership. They were talking about how much of positive buzz the Otangarei Knights were last year, winning the Premiership.
They (Otangarei Knights) had a massive year last year – not only did they win the Premiership but they fully kitted out all of their teams in new playing gear, as they started their own independent league club. However this year, the Knights haven’t got off to the same kind of start, with a few things not going their way. They found themselves training at the Tikipunga Countdown shopping car park as they missed out on using last year’s training venue as the found themselves financially not able to meet the lighting bills.
Anyway cut a long story short – Graham Livingston heard this story and thought – that will simply not do, as a business I can help, Otangarei are an important part of our community so he fronted up and paid the lighting bill! When Smits asked him what he wanted in return his response was, “Nothing! I’m just happy to get people out on the sports field, we all need heroes and the Knights are heroes in their community!”
And that is what Mr Rental is – “A Light in Shining Armour!”
