Generous Sponsorship from Locals provides eight recliner chairs for Bay of Islands Hospital

Fundraising from local Service Clubs and individuals has provided enough money to purchase eight new Romeo Recliner chairs for Bay of Islands Hospital.

 Ian Walters, Tania Walters, The Rotary Clubs of Kaikohe, Kerikeri, Waipapa and Bay of Islands, Taumarere-Opua Women’s Institute, Paihia Ex-Servicemen’s Association Club and the Kaikohe Garden Club have generously supported the new chairs.

Made in Kaiwaka, the Romeo Recliners feature premium lumbar support and the correct seat height and depth to provide the ultimate in comfort to our families.

 “Whānau who are caring for their loved one often stay overnight or spend quite a lot of time at the bedside,” offered Jen Thomas, operations manager, Bay of Islands Hospital.

 “Being given the opportunity to provide whānau with a comfortable chair is a godsend and we are extremely grateful to the organisations and individuals that have helped make this happen.”

 The Romeo Recliner chairs are being delivered in time for the opening of the new 20-bed medical ward in September.
