As the year closes we want to thank organisations for their financial support that enable us to provide the health and wellness services including support of the Eketāhuna foodbank and Eketāhuna community garden. We are only part funded by Te Whatu Ora and Think Hauora; we wish to thank COGs, Eastern and Central, MSD, Waireka, local churches and Eketāhuna Op Shop for their grants and donations. In addition there are individuals who provide unwavering support through donations and the local Eketāhuna people who support through patient fees. Thank you.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
