This project is an ongoing collaboration with Te Awamutu Rotary, Menz Shed, Te Awamutu Paper Plus and Waipa Libraries, providing books to local children in need in 2023. We chose to continue to assist these organisations: Loving Arms, Kainga Aroha, Maori Women's Welfare League, Plunket and Women's Refuge.

Altrusa International of Hawera

Project Heather 40454

Our aim was to purchase an air mattress for Hospice nurses to use in homes in South and Central Taranaki. This would enable a terminally ill patient to stay in their home with the support of the Hospice palliative care. A finger food luncheon provided by members, in memory of a former member was held with tick sales of 115.
