Auction aids health service
A night in a luxury lodge, artwork and sky diving are all up for grabs in an online auction this week.
WONS – Nursing, Education and Health Promotion Services has a variety of items up for auction this week to raise money to fund a growing demand for its services. WONS performs cervical smear tests, educates women on health issues, delivers the Sisters in Health training sessions to help local women become health advocates and holds health pamper days for low income women.
CEO Ruth Davy says while WONS receives some Ministry of Health and Auckland District Health Board funding, it’s not enough to meet demand.
“We need to have this auction to stay in business so we can keep meeting the needs of thousands of women in the Auckland area.
TradeMe is hosting the week-long auction, which closes on Sunday.
