THE Plunket South City clinic is now a more inviting place for families, thanks to a recent makeover.

Plunket’s community support co-ordinator Judy Cook said the exterior of the clinic was in desperate need of repair and a fresh coat of paint.

“I think it’s essential to have rooms that are comfortable, warm and inviting for our South Invercargill families to visit for their clinic appointments, and also for staff to work from,” she said.

“The South City clinic is a much-needed venue as it’s more convenient when you have children to be able to walk somewhere, rather than get in a car.”

The ILT Foundation provided a$12,400 grant towards the total cost of the work, which was $14,600.

“We are fortunate to have the ILT Foundation in Invercargill for the support they offer the community and particularly in South Invercargill.”

ILT Foundation manager Lisa-Maree Fleck said the foundation helped fund the clinic’s renovation to support Plunket and its important role in the Invercargill community to help support families.
