What's up Ninja Nation!
I've got some exciting news to share about Ninja Valley.
Last night, at a wonderful event hosted at the beautiful and majestic Te Pā at the Waikato University, we've been named as one of the top three finalists in two categories at the Waikato Chamber of Commerce Business Awards: Community Contribution and People and Culture. It's a big deal for us, and it's a testament to the hard work that everyone at Ninja Valley has put in.
Ninja Valley isn't just a place to have fun; it's a place that genuinely cares about the community. The Community Contribution category recognises all the charity events we've hosted, the support we've given to local schools, charities, clubs and groups, and our commitment to making a positive impact.
The People and Culture category nomination speaks to the fantastic atmosphere we've created at Ninja Valley. It's not just a business; it's a community where everyone feels welcome and supported. Our crew and fellow ninjas have created something special here which started well before we threw the doors open, when we first conducted workshops with our new, young team that wanted to create our values and have influence over the "Ninja Valley Experience".
I am incredibly proud of the team we have built, the success we have achieved, the experiences we have delivered to tens of thousands of enthusiastic big and small ninjas and how, ultimately, we have put Purpose & People at the forefront of our mission. I received those Finalist Awards last night on behalf of our team and the Ninja Nation.
Now, here's where you come in. We have a chance to win the "Peoples Choice" award, but we need your help. If you've ever enjoyed your time at Ninja Valley or appreciate what we do for the community, we'd be incredibly grateful if you could take a moment to vote for us. Just click on this link and show your support.
The Awards Gala dinner is in November, and it would mean the world to us to have your support. Let's make Ninja Valley the "Peoples Choice" and show our appreciation for this special place we all love.
Thanks for being part of our Ninja Nation. We couldn't have reached this point without all of you. Let's do this together! 🥷🏆 #NinjaValleyCommunity
