It all started on an early sunny Sunday morning – J. A. Russell Ltd’s annual poker run for their petrol head customers who want any excuse to take their V8 cars out for a blast around the country side. After a great cruise around the highlights of West Auckland and surrounding area we ended up at MOTAT where a fully catered lunch was waiting for us and of course one or two quiet ales. This year all money raised for this event went to Mercy Hospice in appreciation for all the wonderful work they do for the Auckland Community. .
Subsequent to the poker run the good folk at Chillex Maintenance, Lewins Electrical and J. A. Russell Ltd joined forces to donate a new 7KW hiwall to Mercy Hospice for their accounts office. Chillex Maintenance supplied the hi-wall unit, Lewins Electrical installed and wired up the unit and J. A. Russell Ltd supplied electrical materials needed to get the job done. Mercy Hospice were very grateful and here is what they said:
“Thank you so much for joining together to help Mercy Hospice. We are very grateful to all of you for supporting our services by providing and installing a new air conditioning unit for our future Chapel (currently being used as office space).
“The team using this space are now cosy and warm and this summer they will be able to throw away the portable fans and keep cool. We also realise that it was not the easiest of installations with the wiring having to travel up, in and around the ceiling but they made it look easy, were totally obliging and breezed through it with no fuss!! 100% Recommend!!
Thank you again for being part of our hospice community and for your generous and thoughtful support.”
