powerlifting epsom salt fundraiser Salt & Oil NZ

Hi, my name is Lesley and I am a Powerlifter. I have been competing for over 4 years now with Central Districts Powerlifting Association, and this is the second time I have qualified for a National competition. I had to pull out last year due to an injury, but after 6 months of rehab, I am back, stronger and more determined to bring the best me to the platform that I can.


Why do I do Powerlifting? It is an incredibly empowering feeling when you successfully complete a heavy lift. It is also an empowering feeling when all your hard work at the gym comes together and you can lift heavier weights.  


Why do I compete in Powerlifting? I have found powerlifters to be the most supportive people I have ever met. It doesn't matter how many people are competing, or what weight is on the bar, or if it's your first competition, or your 20th competition, everyone supports everyone. Everyone cheers for everyone. The atmosphere is amazing, for both the lifters, and the audience.


I am fundraising to help with accomodation and transport costs to get to Wellington in August. As I am a solo mum to two beautiful kids, travelling to Nationals isn't something I can easily save for, but it is important to me to be able to pursue my dreams, and to show my kids that if you work hard at something, anything is possible.


Thank you for checking out my fundraiser.

Here's how you can help:

Every purchase you make will mean a donation of up to 32%* towards my goal.


Salt & Oil is a New Zealand company that makes small-batch bath soak and magnesium oils from natural, ethically-sourced ingredients. I chose them for this fundraiser as their products are not only useful for athletes (magnesium is great for relieving tired, sore muscles, improving sleep and easing feelings of anxiety and stress) they're suitable for all the family and make useful gifts.

What to do now:

1 - Head to the Shop, and choose your items. All gift sets and reduced items receive only 10% as they are already at reduced prices. Thank you for your understanding.

2 - In your cart promo code box you MUST add code LESLEY to be counted towards the fundraising total. The total is calculated from products only; shipping costs are not included. 

3 - My fundraiser officially starts on Friday 24th June, and finishes on Friday 8th July.

4 - If  you'd like to support me further, please consider sharing this page with your friends and family on social media, by email etc so they can place their own order, no matter where they are in NZ. Every small order can help to make a big difference. If you like, you can collate orders from friends and family and place one larger order online (this also saves on shipping costs).

Thank you so much for your support.

* For total orders of under $1000, I get 20% cashback. For orders over $1001 this rises to 32%. 

PS - A quick bit about the products: 

Bath soaks are not just for granny! NZ Rugby Strength & Conditioning Coaches use the SO:Active blend to help their elite athletes' muscle recovery after matches. This is a great product to support the sporty people in your life.

“I regularly order the 'So Active' bath salts for my 14-year-old who doesn't like to do warm-down stretches after football training/games. Instead he has a good soak in the bath with these salts, and they work brilliantly to help relax his muscles. I occasionally use them too when I'm feeling sore & stiff and love them - they are our go-to product for sore muscles!”

If you don’t have a bath but would still like to support our fundraiser, why not try a Magnesium Oil spray? Choose from unscented or lavender, which is great for relaxing into sleep. Both oils are a great way to boost your magnesium levels. Simply spray onto your skin and rub it in. Great for easing your muscles after a workout or training session.
