Unfortunately our existing buses are fast approaching their
use-by dates. We currently have four buses in the Auckland
and Northland regions and we’ve recently leased one in
Canterbury to meet the increasing need for our services in
the post-earthquake environment. We’d love to expand our fleet of buses (Wellington and
Hamilton are top of the list) - however, it’s difficult

$55,000 it will cost to replace those beyond repair.

Haven clinic will be getting an upgrade thanks to Ray White
Beach Haven’s ‘House of Dreams’ community project. Over the last year the property management and real estate
firm, along with a number of sponsors and volunteers from
the community, have been hard at work renovating a house in
Beach Haven. BNZ, our principal sponsor, has also
contributed by offering an interest-free loan and low
mortgage repayments on the property.
Jenny Prince CEO Blog - Viewpoint - Earlier this year I had

into a partnership.

PlunketPlus in two Auckland suburbs – Sylvia Park and
Otahuhu – and have a current workload of approximately
4,000 clients. Every child seen will have their information
recorded electronically via the use of a mobile tablet
