The Māia Health Foundation is pleased to introduce the Morrell-Gunn family as ambassadors.
The family including Kiwi broadcasting legend Jason Gunn, Janine Morrell-Gunn and their children Eve, Grace, Faith and Louis are excited to support a venture that is very close to their own hearts.
“A little can go a long way; if you have a child in hospital you want to be right by their side the whole time. One of the many things that Māia is fundraising for is parent beds next to every child’s bed in the new acute services building in Christchurch Hospital – what a world of difference that will make.”
The family are no strangers to supporting great family causes in Canterbury. Janine is on the Board for Cholmondeley Children’s Home and was founder of Adopt-A-Christchurch-Family.
“As a Canterbury family we believe these projects just simply have to happen. A rooftop helipad instead of landing in Hagley Park will reduce the transfer time before the patient receives treatment by around 13 minutes – that can make a lifetime of difference.”
“If a lot of people gave a little, we could have the best hospital. Let’s just do it, Canterbury!”
