FUNDS FOR SHUTTLE COME IN
Matamata Senior Citiizens gave the Matamata Health Shuttle $650 at their Christmas party last year. The funds were raised through a street raffle.
The cheque was presented to the Shuttle committee after Elvis impersonator Allan Snoad entertained Matamata Senior Citizens members at their Christmas lunch on December 3. Since the service was established in May 2008, its three shuttles have notched up more than 611,000 kilometres ferrying over 15,000 passengers to and from Waikato Hospital as well as other hospitals and clinics in the region.
