Latest News

Let's get moving again - join us Sunday morning and Wednesday evening!

We've put together a plan that aims to reduce our risk of infection but allows us to get back to the outdoors and exercising as a group. With a few changes by restricting group sizes, maintaining social distancing and tracing contacts, please allow a bit of time ahead of the run/walk to follow the new processes.

We're proud to be supporting the following charities this year

A House for Karen

In Karen’s memory “The Karen Cornelia Trust” has been established, (a charitable trust formed under the Charitable Trust Act 1957) with the vision of supporting families with cancer by providing positive and unique experiences to enhance their appreciation and enjoyment of life.

Following Karen's death, her sister in law, Annamarie Brbich had an idea to provide families suffering with cancer a holiday together, at no expense to the family.

From this initial idea, following discussions with family and friends, a larger plan was developed. The idea of having a bach by the sea would give many families the opportunity to have a special holiday on an ongoing basis and following inspired discussion it was decided to form The Karen Cornelia Trust - a Charitable Trust in Karen's memory to achieve this outcome and thus the 'A House for Karen' project was initiated.


TDHB Chaplaincy Services

Our Charitable organisation ICHC (Interchurch Council for Hospital Chaplaincy) delivers support and spiritual care to 47 Hospitals around New Zealand. We train and oversee 354 volunteers in this amazing work. Here in Taranaki we support Taranaki Base and Hawera hospitals with 36 volunteers currently operating week in and week out. This work includes ‘On Call’ provision for our community in Taranaki to be supported 24/7. This support is seen by DHBs around NZ as vital to the wellbeing and recovery of patients in our Community. Current funding continues to fall short of opportunities to train and upskill our Volunteers to keep up with the changing issues challenging our society. To understand and support patients and families who face issues like Anxiety, Loneliness, Suicide, Family Violence have become priorities. This comes alongside our team already supporting patients who are battling life changing diagnoses and often left with a huge loss of independence. Funds are also required for small projects to promote awareness of our work in the Hospital and Community.
