Trust heaps praise on hos­pi­tal vol­un­teers

Matamata Chronicle - - Happy New Year -

Pohlen Hos­pi­tal vol­un­teers have been thanked for their work in their com­mu­nity.

In thank­ing the vol­un­teers, Pohlen Foun­da­tion Trust chair­woman Lady Mar­garet Spring said the foun­da­tion had had its sec­ond high­est fundrais­ing year since its in­cep­tion in 2006.

Over that time the foun­da­tion had raised ‘‘sig­nif­i­cant’’ funds for the hos­pi­tal, she said. ‘‘We’ve done a lot of work.’’

Next year will again be busy for the trust and hos­pi­tal vol­un­teers, with the Real Homes and Gar­dens tour planned, along with a mid-win­ter Christ­mas, a prom­i­nent per­sons evening and the ever- popular ladies lun­cheon.

‘‘And with­out you, we couldn’t do it, so thank you very much,’’ Lady Mar­garet said.
