Tauranga Harbour City Lions, an all-female club, is very proud to be able to provide St John Ambulance with a new MRX Defibrillator for use in their front-line ambulance. This new piece of equipment will add another valuable tool in saving the lives of people in the community.
Harbour City Lions Club raised the money for this at their 2012 book sale.
The amount of $28,000 given to St Johns which was made up of their own contribution, together with a generous grant from the Lloyd Morgan Lions Club Charitable Trust, for which they are very grateful.
"Each year, one or more organisations is chosen by our club to be helped in some worthwhile way, but this was our largest contribution to a single organisation from the proceeds of our 2012 book sale," said publicity officer Margaret Gunter.
"The Harbour City Lions would like to thank the public for their support of our annual book sale - as without the public's donations of books we would not have a book sale at all.
"Our club members work long and hard for many months preparing for this project, but it makes it all worthwhile when we can make such a contribution to our community, and we know that this new MRX Monitor will help save lives."
