Wearable Art & Musical Extravaganza
FibreOctave began in 2012. Eight years on it is now a major event in Southland arts calendar. St John Ambulance, Invercargill have been the recipient of the profits from FibreOctave, a total of approx $63,000 over six years. The donation has gone towards the running expenses of the Health Shuttle which transports people from Southland to Dunedin Hospitals for appointments and treatment. Since its inception in August 2013 the service has travelled an average of 10,000 kms each month. FibreOctave is pleased to be able to offer this support to St John for the benefit of Southland people. A $1,000 donation was made to Hospice Southland in 2018 and a further cheque for $8,000 was presented to Hospice Southland at Bill Richardson Transport World on Friday 14 June 2019. A final donation of $11,000 was presented to Hospice Southland in October 2019.
