    Wellington free ambulance's biggest fundraising event is going digital

    Wellington free ambulance's biggest fundraising event is going digital


    The street collection for Onesie Day has been cancelled for the second year in a row - again due to Covid-19.

    The change has forced the clothing themed fundraiser held in early September, to go online.

    Fundraising Director Claire Carruthers says the donations will contribute to buying a new ambulance.

    She says on average their front-line vehicles are retired after 350-thousand kilometres, which generally works out to be about three and a half years.
