Four Square

In October 2011, Four Square announced a $345,000 sponsorship of the St John Health Shuttle service. The sponsorship enabled us to purchase three new Health Shuttle vehicles. As a result, Health Shuttle transport been established in Central Otago, travelling to Dunedin; and South Canterbury and North Canterbury, both travelling to Christchurch.

Alan Smith, Group Manager Four Square Supermarkets, said that when you look at where Four Square and St John have a presence around the South island, they are ideally matched.

“Four Square has a strong focus in rural areas and we understand the importance of St John in these geographical locations. Many of our owners and staff have associations and contact with St John in their respective areas. Four Square is very community focused and we cannot think of any better ways to support the community.”

About the St John Health Shuttle service
The St John Health Shuttle is a free community service that transports people to essential medical and health-related appointments. Health Shuttles are mainly used by older people who live alone and no longer drive, by people with impaired mobility and by those who can’t physically access other transport options. Staffed by trained volunteer drivers, the service is offered free of charge, although customers are encouraged to make a donation where possible to offset on-going running costs.
