Over 3000 people from all over New Zealand took part in 2016, and were supported by 200 volunteers for the day, all organised by nine volunteer committee members (one of which is our own Janie Evans).
Contact are also pleased to be able to use our community volunteering programme, where our people are given time out of work to support local activities, charities and community groups, to help contribute to the volunteers needed to make this all possible. Many of our employees along with their families and friends take part - as competitors and volunteers, and have done for many years. It is always such a fun day out.
In 2016 the Great Forest Event donated $10,000 back to community groups who assisted with the event leading up to the day, on the day and post event. Through sponsorship of this iconic off Road Event we are able to provide a positive contribution to the Community we operate in.
