Please join us along with family and friends for DINNER THEATRE at the ASB Theatre, Blenheim for a fundraising event hosted by the Pat Farry Rural Health Education Trust.

In conjunction with the National Rural Health Conference, and as a fundraiser for the Pat Farry Rural Health Trust, we will be hosting a private screening of the She Shears Film with a Q+A session with guest speaker Jack Nicol (Film Director).

Proudly supported by New Zealand Rural Women, the film follows the journey of five women shearers, and also shines a light on the many women who live and work hard in rural New Zealand.

We would love for you to join us and support rural health in Aotearoa by forwarding this email to your network and contacts inviting them to help make it a night to remember!

We will also have two of our PFT scholarship recipients, Mark Owen-Cooper and Natasha Austin speaking at the conference. Mark and Natasha will be presenting at the National Rural Health Conference at 1.30pm on the Saturday 6th April, on their experience as a part of being awarded the PFT Travelling Scholarship.

About the Pat Farry Rural Health Education Trust
Visionary leader, highly respected teacher, healer, mentor, tireless advocate and champion of rural health, Dr. Pat Farry was unmatched in his efforts and contribution to Rural Medicine and General Practice education. Pat’s vision of sustainable and quality health services for rural communities and small towns of New Zealand was through education.
The Pat Farry Rural Health Education Trust was established in March 2010, with the purpose of continuing this legacy. The objectives of the Trust are to support the sustainability and quality of health services to rural communities. More than $100,000 has been granted in scholarships to support students interested in a career in rural health.

The Trust looks forward to having your support to continue this legacy by joining us on FRIDAY 5TH APRIL.

Warm regards,

Sue Farry and the Pat Farry Trust Trustees
