We broke the rules and decided on FOUR winners rather than just Two!
Updated: Today we are able to announce that we will donate a total of five garage door packages to deserving Canterbury community groups.
We had originally planned two, but it was simply too hard to decide so we broke our own rules and decided to give away a total of five doors to four deserving community groups.
These groups are in real need, and a new garage door will make a big difference to the services they provide to their members and the wider community.
There will be no more drafty, leaky or jammed garage doors for;
“Since February 2011 we have assisted other scout groups in our area including New Brighton and Linwood who sustained major damage from earthquakes.”
“Our own hall has sustained structural damage in the earthquakes but it is repairable. Our main garage door entrance at the rear of our building that accesses our equipment room is jammed and is unable to be used at present.”
“Our children behave better than our garage door!”
“Our shed contains all of our outdoor play equipment and every day we struggle with opening and closing the door.”
SkillWise at City East Church
“We operate as SkillWise, supporting people who have mild–moderate intellectual disabilities.”
“Following our speedy but safe evacuation from inner-city premises on 22 February 2011, we were fortunate in being offered the opportunity to relocate within the City East Church building – The garage door to this area is ‘munted’.”
Sumner Community Pool (2 doors)
“The Pool is a great asset for the community and we are luckily to have the Pool still operating and got away with minimum damages from the earthquakes.”
“We are in urgent need of 2 new garage doors, one for our Pump Room and one for our Storage room, since the ones we have are at the end of their life.”
Congratulations to all our winners – We will keep this page updated as we progress with the much needed replacement of their doors.
Is your local charity, sports club or community group in need of a new garage door?
As the leading manufacturer of garage doors in the Canterbury region and supplier to the Dominator and Garador brands, we are donating a fully installed door & opener package valued up to $4,500 to two sports clubs, community groups or charities in the Canterbury region that can present the most compelling case.
“We know there are community groups still in need – either due to quake damage, or because the charity dollar has been harder to find this past year.”
This partnership between B&D Doors, Mainland Press, and its new title Selwyn View, gives charities, sports clubs and community groups the chance to win one of two garage door and automatic opener packages from our standard range of products.

Simply write in to the Mainland Press and tell us why your group deserves to win. Be as creative as you like with your entry and include photos, but it must be no more than 250 words.

The competition closes on Monday 19th March, so get your entries in fast!
“We’re delighted to have the chance to give something back to Canterbury. We’ve been a strong local manufacturer for many years, employing 70 people at our Bromley site. Our factory was hit hard in February 2011 but with everyone pulling together, and great support from suppliers, distributors and customers, we were back into full production within a week and have managed to retain all jobs on site,”
“It’s an achievement we’re proud of when so many businesses are forced to question their ability to stay in the region.” – B&D Doors NZ Country Manager, Tim Dalzell.
