Showcase: A safe storage solution for local hospice  

Showcase: A safe storage solution for local hospice  

The challenge:

Arohanui Hospice Trust in Palmerston North needed a storage solution after receiving a large quantity of donations from the community for one of its second-hand stores.

The proceeds from the charity group’s second-hand store sales go towards running the hospice where people with a life-limiting condition receive specialist palliative care.

The solution:

Royal Wolf provided Arohanui Hospice with a Wolf Lock container as a safe and secure solution to store the hundreds of donated clothes and household items.

As well as providing extra storage, the Wolf Lock container is easy to open with one hand making it ideal for the Hospice’s older volunteers when they are accessing and shifting donated stock in and out.

The Wolf Lock also has a safety exit feature which means it can be opened from the inside if the door closes, or gets closed accidentally.

The result:

Every year the Arohanui Hospice provides care for more than 1,100 patients throughout the Manawatu and Rangitikei regions as well as support for their whanau and carers.

The Wolf Lock container will enable the volunteers at the hospice to continue their important work and makes the process of storing donations and stock just that much easier.  

This project was a full community effort with the team at McIntosh Cranes – and driver Pitch – competing the delivery for a heavily discounted price.
