Our Community

The Just Paterson team is big on supporting the community. Apart from its key charity partnership with the Malaghan Institute, Just Paterson supports a whole range of community fundraisers and initiatives – from schools and early childhood centres to national and local charities and other projects.  You’ll often see Just Paterson people out and about participating in community initiatives. 

Ian Paterson and Charles Morley-Hall have become much sought after figures on the charity auctioneering circuit – supporting charities such as Wellington Free Ambulance, Port Nicholson Rotary, Pablos Art Auction, Ronald McDonald House and Wellington Children’s Hospital plus many other school and community fundraisers.

While we can’t support everyone, we’re happy to consider requests. If you have a charity or school or childcare fundraising initiative you’d like our help with just email community@justpaterson.co.nz, and we’ll come back to you.



Our Partnership

The team at Just Paterson are passionate supporters of the Malaghan Institute which is a Wellington based and internationally renowned medical research facility.  We've been working with the Malaghan Institute since the death of our co-founder Sally Paterson in 2009 to a rare form of brain cancer.  Together Just Paterson and the Malaghan Institute are committed to finding a vaccine and Just Paterson have already raised over $300,000 for brain cancer research through sponsorships, charity auctions and our annual MALAGHAN MONTH promotion.

It is a privilege to be associated with one of the world's leading research organisations, focused on finding cures for cancer, asthma, arthritis and many other diseases.  We are honoured to have been acknowledged by the Institute on their Honours Board.  We think Sally would approve!
