Presentation of a new vehicle to Lincoln Community Care was the culmination of renewed support of the organisation by Lincoln Rotary...
Lincoln and Districts Community Care (www.lincolncomcare.co.nz) was established in 1978 with support from Lincoln Rotary, to provide services in rural areas that town-based people enjoyed. It  has grown over the intervening 40 years from a few volunteers operating out of tiny accommodation to 3 full time staff and a purpose built 260 m2 facility, which also accommodates the Nurse Maude district nurses.
 
With growth in the areas served, Lincoln Rotary was recently approached to assist with a transport problem.  It quickly became obvious the solution was to provide a suitable car but funding available from Lincoln Rotary and the Rotary Foundation, matched by Community Care funding, left a 'gap' to the cost of a suitable vehicle. However an approach to Miles Toyota was successful and a Toyota Corolla hatchback was secured. Thanks to Rotary and Miles Toyota, Lincoln Community Care can continue to grow.
