The Taumarunui Mobility Van and Ohakune Health Shuttle receive a grant from King Country Trust
King Country Trust (previously the King Country Electric Power Trust) is thrilled to announce it will distribute $84,000 to the Taumarunui Mobility Van and $50,000 to the Ohakune Health Shuttle. These funds will enable both organizations to purchase new vans, which will be used within local communities.
In the past, KCT has passed a major share of the annual income it earns from its investment portfolio (which includes a 25% shareholding in King Country Energy Ltd, a managed portfolio and term deposits) to eligible consumer beneficiaries by way of a credit on their power accounts.
The balance of the Taumarunui apportionment will be distributed in July to all beneficiaries in that area whilst Ohakune’s balance of $148,386 will be used to build an extension to the ambulance station, as soon as the architect drawings are finalized and presented to KCT.
Distributing directly to beneficiaries will always be the default position of the Trust but funding crucial support networks will help our community now and into the future.
