The Taranaki Health Foundation has launched the Love our Kidneys campaign, with a goal to raise $500,000 for enhancements for the new purpose-built renal unit. The renal unit is set to be built on David St – a single-storey timber building with a distinctly non-clinical feel in comparison to the existing department. It will have sustainability features and a pedestrian connection to the Taranaki Base Hospital campus.

The Taranaki Health Foundation fundraises on behalf of the community to deliver new technology and services over and above Government funding provided to the Taranaki DHB. If you would like to support this project the Foundation would love to hear from you.

Taranaki man's legacy will live on years after his death

People like Bruce are a great example of the generosity we see across Taranaki.

In the past this incredible generosity has meant the people of Taranaki have provided the hospital with new incubators for babies, a new angiography suite and specialised chairs for chemotherapy. We are hoping to call on Taranaki again as we raise funds for enhancements to Project Maunga Stage 2.

Paddy Gower and Conrad Smith don their best lycra for weekend charity ride

This Saturday, Patrick Gower and Conrad Smith will be taking on an epic 130km bike ride from Oakura Beach to Whangamōmona, all in the aid of So They Can. 🚴🚴

They were supposed to be riding round Lake Taupō, but the red light setting meant the event was cancelled. So instead they have brought it home and decided to conquer Taranaki instead!

Keep an eye out for their pink lycra, and if you see them, give them a supporting cheer as they work their way through the region.
