T-shirt fund raiser



Onewhero’s rural fire force put on a social evening last Saturday for the local community where around 40 people of all ages turned out for some food, a natter and few rounds of pool.
The force has been active fighting fires, helping the injured and critically ill in the wider rural district for 30 years.
It began in 1985 with just a handful of volunteers and one small vehicle.
The 25 volunteers, who now man three diverse vehicles, have recently raised funds for several breathing apparatuses and are now taking orders for supporters’ t-shirts.
Being part of the force means a lot to its members and quite a few have been involved for 20 or 30 years.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
