KGA Accounting Plus Warkworth_Face Masks Donation.jpg

A local volunteer organisation tasked with caring for the elderly or immune compromised were very relieved to receive our donation of 1,500 face masks to help keep their volunteers and community safe during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Mahurangi Caremongers was set up by a group of locals including One Warkworth Business Association and Warkworth Lions to offer a shopping service during Alert Levels 3 and 4 for our elderly and those who are immune compromised.

Before offering this service, one of the major concerns of the organisation was the safety of their volunteers who had to supply their own gloves and face masks. As a new charity, the Mahurangi Caremongers had no funds to purchase these for their volunteers.

Group organiser and One Warkworth Business Association Manager, Murray Chapman, explains, “We were over the moon when we were contacted by Jacqueline from KGA Accounting Plus Warkworth offering us, free of charge, around 1500 Face Masks.”

Every Tuesday and Thursday, our Mahurangi Caremongers volunteers went shopping on behalf of those participating in this service at New World in Warkworth. They also offered this service to local mothers unable to bring their children into the supermarket who would instead wait in the carpark while a volunteer did the shopping for them.

Murray continues, “The donation made by KGA Accounting Plus has been a wonderful contribution and made our volunteers (and those they are caring for) much safer as they continue to provide this much needed service of looking after those in need in our community.”

“On behalf of Mahurangi Caremongers thank you so much to Jacqueline and her team for this much appreciated donation.”

Murray, along with everyone involved in this project, has found it incredibly heartening and worthwhile to see contributions such as this from local businesses in the community.

“This type of giving warms the heart and makes one proud of our business community,” he says.
