The Lodge has been and continues to be committed to supporting Cancer Relief, plus several other programmes including the purchasing of 5 Defibrillators  (Three Police Car based and two static in the community) and the promoting of healthy eating within schools by supplying Veggie Pods for the children to look after.

Many community projects

Over the years, the local Lodge 443 has been involved in a number of projects that have assisted the local community in significant ways.

As well as the five defibulators, relief funding and distribution of “Veggie Pods’ to local schools, the Lodge has Assisted St John with the running of a golf tournament to raise funds for the building of St John Station in Cook drive. They ran a sausage sizzle during the golf tournament for 16 years.

In addition, their fundraising has assisted St John with funds for the purchase of a new ambulance.

The Lodge believes that the purchase of a Mammogram machine  is badly needed on the Coromandel Peninsula   This would save a six-hour round trip to Waikato Hospital and relieve pressure on an overloaded health.
