The NZUK Link supported the building of the Weta War Memorial in Wellington by WETA workshop to commemorate those allies from New Zealand and the UK who lost their lives in conflicts world-wide. The funds were largely raised in the UK by the Link Foundation Chairman and Trustees. Located in Pukeahu National War Memorial Park, the five metre tall memorial was unveiled in July 2017 by the then British Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, attended by the Governor General, Dame Patsy Reddy, the British High Commissioner, Jonathan Sinclair, military personnel and others. 


The Link has facilitated the Elman Poole Scholarships which allow talented young musicians to travel, train and play with professional orchestras, in particular the South Bank Sinfonia, and on return to New Zealand these scholars share their knowledge and inspire their peers.
