Taupō Mayor David Trewavas and his wife Anna are recovering well following the kidney transplant procedure they underwent on Monday. The Mayor was diagnosed as requiring a kidney transplant in 2018, and had been on a waiting list for the transplant procedure.

Mayor Trewavas said he would like to once again thank his wife for being the donor, as well as the medical teams involved in Taupō, Rotorua and Hamilton hospitals, and the incredible renal surgeons and team at Auckland City Hospital. Mr Trewavas also thanked his colleagues at Taupō District Council and the people of the Taupō District and throughout New Zealand for their best wishes and support.

Deputy Mayor Rosie Harvey, who is acting Mayor in Mr Trewavas’s absence, said the Mayor would be recuperating throughout January and she wished both him and his wife a speedy recovery.
