On Thursday 29th October 2020, the Rotary Club of East Coast Bays, in association with our principal sponsor, North Shore Taxis, will be holding the 20th annual "DRIVE 4 LIFE" charity golf (ambrose) tournament at Waitemata Golf Club in Devonport, in support of the Well Foundation. We also acknowledge the support of our major sponsor Ryman Healthcare.
This is an invitation for you, your staff, clients and friends to participate and help raise funds for one of the Well Foundation’s highest current priorities – reclining maternity chairs.
This year we are again selecting the Waitemata District Health Board’s Well Foundation as the ultimate beneficiary. The focus of our Charity Golf Tournament this year is to raise sufficient funds so the Well Foundation can purchase a number of Reclining Maternity Chairs. Every year 4,000 babies are born at North Shore Hospital with Mums and babies having an average stay of 2 days, increasing to 3-4 days for Caesarean deliveries. Whilst partners or other key support people are welcome to stay overnight, the maternity ward does not have beds or comfortable chairs for them to sleep in.  It has been proved that having family members staying overnight for support complements the care provided by hospital staff, as well as reducing anxiety for new Mums. This special time together increases the bonding time for families, and has a positive effect on parents’ ability to cope once they are discharged and return home with their newborn. These reclining chairs, which are ideal for breastfeeding Mums, will provide a comfortable place for family members to sleep, therefore helping to create a supportive environment for families. 
The Well Foundation is committed to advancing healthcare for the people of the North Shore and the East Coast Bays Rotary Club made the decision to support this worthy project. This is a fundraiser the whole of our club membership gets involved in by assisting in the running of the Golf Tournament.
The Rotary Club of East Coast Bays Charitable Trust with the support of the Well Foundation and other businesses will be raising funds for this and other community projects.
