Through its predecessor firms, Webb Farry has been a part of Dunedin’s community for more than 100 years. It is therefore not surprising that we support a wide range of activities across Otago.
In addition to our sponsorships, the firm also supports the Combined Dunedin Churches’ Christmas Foodbank Appeal each year, through both a financial contribution and staff-donated food parcels.
Local Schools – High Vis Vests
Recently Webb Farry undertook a community initiative, offering to provide some local schools with Webb Farry branded high vis vests for use during road patrol or other outings.
“The vests are terrific and have had a lot of use , so huge thanks again!”
- Balmacewen Intermediate
“We appreciate you thinking of us and involving the College with your community initiative. The vests will be well utilised around campus, for road patrol and other outdoor activities.”
- Columba College
Otago Cricket and Webb Farry teamed up in 2008 and we support them through time, financial sponsorship and as their solicitors.
“Webb Farry’s support of Otago Cricket helps us deliver quality programmes and opportunities to all levels of cricket in our community.”
Southern Rugby Club
Our involvement with the Southern Rugby Club is one of time and financial support.http://www.srfc.co.nz
Dunedin Symphony Orchestra
We have sponsored the Dunedin Symphony Orchestra (previously Southern Sinfonia) for many years. The Orchestra's high artistic standard is acknowledged nationally and it is a source of pride for Dunedinites. However, with limited government support and the Orchestra’s wish to keep ticket prices reasonable, it relies on local support, such as ours.
“Webb Farry’s long-standing sponsorship of the orchestra has meant that the orchestra is able to provide its community with a wide range of performances, and all at a consistently-high quality. In turn this contributes to keeping Dunedin’s arts and culture vibrant.”

Dunedin Performing Arts Competitions Society
Our support of the performing arts in Dunedin goes back decades, to the time of former mayor Peter Chin, a founding Partner in the practice. The Webb Farry Junior Scholarship is for 18 to 20 year olds and competed for annually.
“The Webb Farry Junior Scholarship is affectionately known as ‘the Webb Farry’ amongst singers in that age group. Competing for the scholarship gives young singers the opportunity to perform a varied three-song recital, which tests their vocal stamina, musical storytelling ability, linguistic skills and overall performance skills. This gives the younger singer a taste of what performing at a high level is like. Many have gone on to compete in the Senior Cleveland Scholarship.”http://www.dpacs.org.nz
Laura Overton - Track and Field Athlete
We are pleased to offer financial support to Laura, an up and coming javelin thrower from Dunedin.
"Webb Farry's support eases the financial burden associated with the cost of being an amateur athlete trying to succeed at the highest level."
We are long-time supporters of Taieri Tennis – both financially and through our role as Honorary Solicitor.
“Webb Farry’s sponsorship allows us to continue with initiatives, such as our 50% entry fee rebate for junior members participating at regional and national tennis tournaments. Without Webb Farry’s support this would not be possible.”
