Kiwi of the Year pledges to continue

New Zealander of the Year Lance O'Sullivan has vowed to continue working in the Far North as a GP, saying his passion lies there.

At the awards ceremony in Auckland last night, the Kaitaia-based doctor accepted the accolade from Prime Minister John Key.

"I want to say thank you for acknowledging my efforts, to make New Zealand a better place to live, were worthy enough for this award.

"The Far North is the right place to express my passion and leadership." O'Sullivan added: "We don’t do what we do for recognition, but when nights like this happen it helps us go forward for another day, another week, another month, another year."
