Donation from shed blokes

Community groups are stepping up left, right and centre in support of the new station build for Wellington Free Ambulance [WFA].

Henley Mens Shed in Masterton is the latest group to donate funds, with a $1000 boost.

“WFA said the support of our community is vital in building this station for the benefit of everyone in the Wairarapa – ‘Built for the community, by the community’,” Henley Mens Shed manager John Bush said.

“The blokes were already well aware of the need for a great ambulance service and the support structure behind it.”

Henley Mens Shed has supported WFA by making toy ambulances as fundraisers, participating in AED-CPR training and funding an AED [defibrillator] unit outside the Mens Shed available 24-7.

“And so, Henley Mens Shed has donated $1000 to the station build project. It just fits with our own Mens Shed motto ‘In the Community – For the Community’,” Bush said.

WFA is raising $3 million from the community to build its $7 million new station on the corner of Russell and Queen St in Masterton.
