TLC gets in behind Meads Brothers Exhibition
29 October 2019
The Lines Company (TLC) has stepped up to support the popular Gallagher Meads Brothers Exhibition in Te Kuiti.
The exhibition in the town’s i-SITE celebrates the lives of local and international rugby legends, the late Sir Colin and Stan Meads.
It is run by the Pinetree No 5 Trust and provides an in-depth look at the All Black brothers lives and rugby careers.
TLC chief executive Sean Horgan said TLC’s support for the exhibition was a “logical fit”.
“TLC were right behind the statue of Colin which has become a real focal point for the town.
“Given proceeds from the exhibition are used to benefit young people in Te Kuiti, we were more than happy to support it,” he said.
“Our community funding strategy is also based on supporting local children, youth or whanau so it’s a natural fit.”
Pinetree trust spokesperson, Sir Colin’s daughter Shelley Mitchell said they were thrilled TLC has become an official exhibition supporter.
“TLC is one of the local businesses that supported Legendary Te Kuiti in honouring Dad with the statue, so we really appreciate that they’re happy to lend their support again.
“We get amazing feedback from visitors all over the world, and have had more than 1000 people visit, so it’s really nice to have TLC being part of that success and help us to give something back to our young people as Dad wanted,” says Mrs Mitchell.
The exhibition is open 9am-4.30pm Monday to Friday and from 10am-2pm on Saturdays from November 1.
Entry fees are $10 per adult, $8 for senior citizens, $5 for children aged (5-14). Family passes are available.
