Supporting the local Community

We are committed to supporting the Te Whakaraupō Lyttelton Harbour Basin and Rolleston communities we are a part of.

Sponsorships range from financial or in-kind support for activities that deliver ongoing benefits to specific support for projects, events and initiatives.

LPC focuses on providing sponsorship for:

  • Community, child and youth development and environmental initiatives in Te Whakaraupō Lyttelton Harbour Basin and the Rolleston Area
  • Organisations supporting Christchurch and Canterbury’s economic development and growth
  • Wider community beneficial initiatives in Christchurch.


There is one funding round each year that is open from June 1.

To make an application, please fill in the sponsorship application form and see the sponsorship policy.

The deadline for applications is July 31.
