Friends of Darfield Hospital Received Generous Donation


At the recent monthly Friends of Darfield Hospital meeting, held on Wednesday, March 11th,  the Friends received a very generous donation of $2,500 from John Winchester, representing the organisers of the Selwyn Motor Fest.

The Motor Fest took place on November 25th last year, and is advertised as ‘Selwyn’s Greatest Car Show and Family Day’. A twelve hectare site opposite Rolleston College is used on the day. There was an extensive display of cars, trucks, motorcycles and farm vehicles at the event, as well as live entertainment, stalls and food vendors. There were also games to amuse the children, and other activities (with prizes for some) which included auctions and raffles. All profits raised are donated to a number of local Selwyn charities and organisations.

As one of the beneficiaries of last year’s event, The Friends of Darfield Hospital are most grateful to John and his colleagues for the outstanding donation they received. The funds will be used to enhance the comfort, care and treatment of the patients, as well as making the hospital a pleasant venue for staff and visitors.
