St John Ambulance
Children in care are selflessly looked after by an
amazing group of foster parents - ordinary people
turning around young lives. We provide local foster
parents with free tangible support, advocacy
services and specialised training, so they can
provide a safe, stable and loving home for as long
as the children in their care need it.
In the year to 31 January 2016, St John Ambulance
officers responded to 5278 emergency calls from
Nelson Station. St John also provides a suite of
community based health-focused programmes in
Nelson and need to raise $1000 each day of the
year so our ambulance officers can continue to
provide the right care at the right time.
We operate a youth mentoring programme across
Nelson and Tasman, in which at risk young people
are buddied up with adult / teenage mentors,
helping them to achieve their potential through
support and friendship by setting goals, having
aspirations, developing self-confidence, bettering
communication and interpersonal skills.
The programmes that we offer cater to the boys and
girls development in the physical, emotional,
spiritual and mental aspects of their lives in an
appropriately safe environment where they are
encouraged to be themselves, work together and
thrive. We aim to teach our Scouts to Have Respect,
Do What Is Right and Be Positive.
Toyota Corolla hybrid coming
A petrol-electric version of the Toyota Corolla hatch will be launched in New Zealand in a few weeks.
A hybrid version of New
Zealand's most popular passenger
car is soon to be launched.
The car is the Toyota Corolla,
which last year was easily the
biggest-selling passenger vehicle
in the country, with more than
Now Toyota New Zealand is to
add a petrol-electric hybrid to the
Corolla fleet. The single model
will go on sale during the third
quarter of this year, Spencer
Morris, the company's general
manager of product, confirmed.
And the Corolla might not be
the only additional hybrid model
to join the Toyota lineup. Morris
confirmed that a hybrid version
of the RAV4 -- which last year was
the country's second-most
popular passenger vehicle -- is
also being considered.
''It's obviously on our wish
list,'' he said. At present Toyota
NZ's hybrid fleet comprises the
Prius, Prius C, Prius V and
Camry Hybrid, and between them
they have helped establish hybrid
technology as an integral part of
motoring in New Zealand.
But the arrival of a hybrid
version of a hatch that each year
sells in its thousands, promises to
dramatically increase the
popularity of the product. ''We see
the arrival of the Corolla as part
of the process of normalising
hybrids,'' said Morris. When it
was suggested that pricing will
play a major role in that process,
he said the new hybrid will be
The Corolla hybrid has been on
sale in other parts of the world for
some time now. In western
Europe, where Corolla is known
as the Auris, the hybrid accounts
for more than 50 per cent of all
sales. Information from Toyota
Australia, where the hybrid will
also be sold, suggests it will
consume a third less fuel than its
conventional counterparts, It will
combine a 1.8-litre petrol engine
with a 60kW electric motor and
nickel-metal hydride battery, for a
total output of 100 kW.
