Eyebright Awards celebrate Plunket's service

Eyebright Awards celebrate Plunket's service to families

Plunket is welcoming today's launch of the Eyebright Awards as a wonderful opportunity for parents to acknowledge the care and support given by Plunket Nurses, Community Karitane and Kaiawhina.

Plunket chief executive, Paul Baigent, says the extra mile that Plunket's 550 carers go to ensure families are supported and feel confident with the arrival of a new baby will be fully recognised and celebrated with these Awards.

"We constantly hear praise of the work of our Plunket Nurses, Community Karitane and Kaiawhina; now this is a chance for parents and caregivers to write in with their own special Plunket story".

The Eyebright Awards are inviting parents and caregivers to pay tribute to their Plunket carer. In September three national Eyebright Stars will be acknowledged in a major awards ceremony.
