Posted on: 14/01/18

The Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal has wrapped up for 2017 with the handover of $112,158 to Northland District Health Board Child Health Services.

The presentation of the giant cheque was made at the Countdown supermarket at Whangarei’s Okara Park shopping complex, where store manager Michael Ravlich and Countdown group manager for Northland Chris George presented the cheque to Child Health Services service manager Yvonne Hunter and Health of Older People & Clinical Support general manager Neil Beney.

Over 7500 children and babies are admitted to one of the four Northland hospitals each year. Funds donated by the Appeal to Northland DHB help Maternal and Child Health Services afford items on a ‘wish list.’
