TE OMANGA HOSPICE Te Omanga
Rest & Peace

Te Omanga has been in existence since 1979, providing free support to all who need it. The service costs $6.9 million a year to run – a product of sound management together with Government and community support.

“We rely on the generosity of our community,” CEO Biddy Harford (pictured left with Fundraising & Relationship Manager Kirsty Stratford) says. “Especially now as we rebuild our earthquake- prone hospice.”

Despite being in temporary premises, Te Omanga continues to provide care and support to over 585 patients and their families with nurses making over 7,000 visits to patients in their own home.

Griffiths Drilling  Mel Griffiths
Hole Hearted
Griffiths Drilling has taken drilling to new levels with the country’s first fully wireless geotechnical drilling rig and a sophisticated SONIC drill taking the effort out of geotechnical analysis.

“We’re doing some very exciting work,” MD Mel Griffiths (pictured), says. “Things like drilling for fresh drinking water under Wellington harbour and there’s some very challenging geotechnical work going on in Transmission Gully.”

2017 was a good year – turnover was up, they purchased more new equipment, hit a record low in days lost due to accident and completed their ten-year plan two years early. Great stuff!
