On Wednesday 12th April a new ambulance was dedicated at the Hato Hone St John Archives, in Auckland, for the Helensville Station.
It is a Generation 4 vehicle, with all the latest equipment on board. Hato Hone St John is grateful to the We Care Community Trust, who donated the $250,000 to purchase it. The Trust is a non-profit company that operates gaming machines to raise funds for the community, including the Kaipara Tavern in Helensville.
