Taking the initiative: A break-in at the Glen Innes Citizens Advice
Bureau foodbank led to an unexpected act of generosity from Keld
Burlon, John Van Meeuwen and Aaron Meyer, the Mission Bay Hire-
a- Hubby team. Upon assessing the damage, Mr Burlon noticed the
tired state of the rooms and heard the wish list of CAB and Plunket,
including a connecting door between the adjoining premises they
occupy in the council-owned building. He called upon local
businesses to contribute materials including paint from
Placemakers Mt Wellington. Carpet Savers donated and laid carpet
and local electrician Glen Whittle gave his services free of charge.
The Hire-a-Hubby team then carried out the labour. CAB branch
manager Jacqui Arnold says: ''These kind acts of generosity have
resulted in a fresher, more inviting and safer setting for the Plunket
nurses and mums and babies visiting the rooms''. Pictured from
left: Aaron Meyer, John Van Meeuwen, Mike Wyber of Carpet Savers
and Keld Burlon.
Mucking in: Eight enthusiastic members
of the Rotary Club of Remuera got stuck in
at a working bee for Mercy Hospice in
Ponsonby on November 20. They built five
concrete pads on which to mount garden
seats. The club planted daffodil bulbs in
the garden last winter and the chairs will
enable patients to sit in the garden and
admire the flowers each spring. The club
gratefully acknowledges the support of
Placemakers Lunn Ave for the donation of
timber and hardware, and Allied
Concrete's contribution. Pictured are Leigh
Marshall, Richard Robertson, Don
Rushworth, club president David Hunt,
Richard Veber, Colin Wilson, Brian Burke
and Jim Holmes.
