On September 21, we held our 20th Anniversary Charity Auction at Rydges Latimer in Christchurch.

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who attended and the business and organisations who donated items for our auction.

Together, we raised $53,850 with all proceeds going towards our regional outreach clinics, to ensure our services are accessible for all people with cochlear implants. A fantastic result.

Neil Heslop, SCIP CEO says “SCIP’s ongoing care for cochlear implant patients over their lives means there is an enduring, lifelong relationship with our patients. A large part of the relationship is about the ongoing access to cochlear implant technology. But in essence it is about assisting people. We are fortunate to work in a part of New Zealand’s health service where the results are instantly life changing at switch-on. Our patients go from hearing nothing to hearing something. It’s very rewarding to be a part of the remarkable impact this wonderful technology has on the lives of ordinary New Zealanders. It’s important to mark our milestones, and our 20th anniversary is an excellent opportunity to celebrate and fundraise at the same time. I’m pleased to report that the auction has exceeded our expectations. ”

To mark our 20th Anniversary milestone, we have produced a book to commemorate the past two decades.

This is available for you to read here.
