Canterbury caregiver honoured

16 September 2015 Christchurch caregiver Ruth Te Rangi was honoured for her service to the New Zealand Nurses Organisation at an awards dinner in Wellington last night.

NZNO kaiwhakahaere Kerri Nuku says, "Ruth has been a member of Canterbury Regional Council for many ears, representing caregivers and the aged care sector. She has made a valuable contribution to the organisation and the council as our Te Poaro o Te Runanga chairperson."

"Ruth's cultural expertise and deep understanding of tikanga has been invaluable to the region at many conventions, meetings and hui. She has brought us the gift of unity and helped us share our vision widely."

"Along with the NZNO Canterbury Regional Council, I wish to thank Ruth for commitment, passion, drive and friendship. Our organisation is richer for her involvement."
