Auc­tion aids health ser­vice

Central Leader - - News -

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.
