Red Cross

Plimmerton Red Cross (read history) would like to thank the volunteer drivers who delivered Meals on Wheels to residents in Papakowhai, Paremata, Whitby and Plimmerton throughout the past year.
This service provides a daily visit and hot lunch prepared by Kenepuru Hospital Kitchen to those who are not able to cook for themselves.
The volunteers give a couple of hours a month to help others, and their service is greatly appreciated.
New drivers are always welcome.   Please phone 233 1197.

Red Cross news from January 2011

In January on the "best day of summer", Plimmerton Red Cross and our Emmerson House physically disabled friends and carers, enjoyed a great day together at a picnic-style lunch catered by the Plimmerton Red Cross and held at the Plimmerton Boating Club. To be outside on such a beautiful day in their wheelchairs enjoying the sun and sea, and even a close inshore yacht capsize and rescue, change made for a good day, plus of course the ever keen locals trying their luck to land a fish from the boat club jetty. Many thanks to the Plimmerton Boating Club for providing the facilities for this annual lunch, it is very much appreciated.
