Railene Mabin, of Waipukurau, QSM, for services to the Plunket Society
Mrs Mabin joined her local Plunket group 45 years ago and helped with fundraising by selling bunches of daffodils, first at her gate and then at service stations. This culminated in her vision of the Spring Festival at Taniwha Station garden near Waipukurau, at which people pick their own daffodils and donate to Plunket. Each weekend in September, volunteers wrap bunches for sale, with all proceeds going to Plunket. Mrs Mabin’s efforts have contributed towards providing two cars for the local Plunket nurses, running costs for the local office, and retention of the Waipukurau Plunket rooms.
