The Robert Bartley Foundation was established in 2020 by the Bartley family. The Foundation's namesake, Robert Bartley QSM, was a well known and much loved business man who championed sport, business, and health services in the Whanganui region.
Sadly, Robert passed away on 17 March 2021, aged 69, following a long battle with cancer. Rob, Ann, and family established the Robert Bartley Foundation to ensure Rob’s legacy of giving back to his local community continues.
The Foundation's purpose is to make healthcare more accessible, by taking the services to the greater Whanganui area.
