Proudly Supporting St John's Health Shuttle
Just one of the ways we look after the locals.
We're proud to support St John's Health Shuttle.
Not everyone finds it easy to reach their health care appointments. Some people have particular challenges getting to and from an appointment due to age or health-related issues, or sometimes a lack of affordable transport. St John Health Shuttles are a way of assisting these people to get to their important medical appointments.
Four Square have sponsored the initiative since 2011. The first shuttle sponsored by Four Square Supermarkets was for health shuttles in Central Otago, Ashburton and North Canterbury, and the support has since expanded to included Wakatipu and Invercargill-to-Dunedin. The Central Otago shuttle has also expanded its route to include Palmerston and Waikouaiti.
The St John's Health Shuttle service is free, however we do ask for a donation to help cover costs, as St John is charity. All our volunteers who drive the Shuttles are trained in first aid and safe driving practices.
In 2013, Four Square was awarded the St John Priory Vote of Thanks, which recognises people, institutions, incorporated societies and business concerns who have given conspicuous service to the Order of St John. Read more here.
