The Mercury Bay Health Support Trust began in 2001 for people in the Whitianga Community with diabetes. In 2008 the group was incorporated under the Charities Commission Act and is now funded and managed by a Board of Trustees.
Today the group caters for those in the community with or without a medical condition. Offers support and promotes the well being for its members. There is no distinction between age, race, religion, politics or gender. Families, caregivers and friends are most welcome.
The group meets on the first Thursday of every month at the Community Services Centre, in Whitianga at 1.30pm. Each month the Members enjoy a guest speaker from the medical profession or a topic of interest. Afternoon tea is provided. Please contact us if you need assistance with transport.
