About $80,000 has been raised for community groups in the Tokanui and Woodlands areas after a top town stage contest at Gorge Road at the weekend.

The Woodlands team won.

The event was part of the Southland Spirit of a Nation programme, which aims to raise $500,000 in total for the south by the end of June 2014 by pitting groups and communities against each other in fun competitions.

The $80,000 from the weekend's event is a record, topping the previous best, $55,000, achieved when Te Anau bowed to Manapouri in September. Money raised by the event will go to the Woodlands Rugby Club, Woodlands Netball Club, the Tokanui Skatepark and Curio Bay Trust.
