ASB Good as Gold

We're thrilled to bring you ASB Good as Gold – an initiative to celebrate and reward amazing Kiwis.

Marina Theron

A few years ago at 15, Marina broke her neck, resulting in her becoming paralyzed from the chest down. Through all of this, Marina's positive spirit, courage and determination to recover has meant that she's made improvements that no one ever thought possible. Watch as we surprise her with a little ASB Good as Gold magic.

Clive Gregory

Clive Gregory is a legend within the Great Barrier Island community. He's that person that if you ever need a favour or help, he'll drop everything to be there. He's also the type of bloke that always says 'no thanks required'. Well we reckon he deserves a giant thank you and that's why he's this week's ASB Good as Gold.

Dinnie Moeahu

Achieving your fitness goals is one thing, but doing it for a great cause is something else. Dinnie Moeahu is one, incredible man who's been training from scratch to compete in the 2019 NZ Ironman and has his sights set on raising $80,000 for the Little Fighters Trust - a trust which raises money for families with a child or parent suffering life threatening illnesses

Donna Sharp

A mother's love means everything when you are battling illness and young Lucy Sharp knows this more than most. Watch as we surprise Lucy's mum, Donna, with a little ASB Good as Gold magic to help Lucy thank her Mum.

Verona Mitchell

This week's ASB Good as Gold recipient is Mosgiel vet, Verona Mitchell. Verona donates her time, money and energy to help the Animal Rescue Centre in Dunedin, whilst working 6 days a week, and on call 24/7, in her own veterinarian practice. She has treated well over 2000 rescue animals since she volunteered her services. Watch us surprise her with a little ASB Good as Gold love in return for all her loving care!

Nick Tuiali'I

A man of great heart and mana, Nick Tuiali'I is this week's ASB Good as Gold recipient. He has dedicated his life to caring for the students of Mount Roskill Grammar and the local community. After a lifetime of giving, we thought it was time for his generosity to be returned.

Jani Alexander

Parents will do anything to ensure their kids have the best start in life! This rings true for this week's ASB Good as Gold winner, Jani Alexander whose young daughter Lily was born with a rare genetic condition. To ensure that she has the best chance in life Jani has been on a mission to raise money for Lily's school, Woodlands Park, to support Lily and all the other kids that need extra support.

Donna Collins

She's been to Sierra Leone to help with the outbreak of Ebola, Bangladesh for the refugee crisis and recently got back from Tonga after it was hit by the devastating tropical cyclone Gita. Donna Collins is an amazing woman who does as much as she can for other people. Not only does she work as a registered nurse/midwife at the Northland District Health Board, she also works as a nurse/midwife for the International Red Cross.

Jill Hann

This week's ASB Good as Gold winner is Jill Hann, who started 'Need for a Feed', a community dinner initiative in Kaikoura for anyone that would like it. We agree with the locals that Kaikoura is extra special because of her giving and generous heart.

John and Jolene Guyton

Reporao couple, John and Jolene Guyton are not only parents to six kids and owners of a demanding dairy farm, but the pair provide unwavering support to their local primary school making sure the students and teachers have everything they need. To reward them for their work in the community we surprised John and Jolene with $10,000 to go towards a special family holiday.
