Records of­fered

Central Leader - - News -

Waimarie Round Dance Club founder Ray Ma­son has been of­fered a help­ing hand af­ter his 249 danc­ing records were stolen, forc­ing him to close down the club.

A San­dring­ham woman read about Mr Ma­son’s plight in the Cen­tral Leader and rang to of­fer him her record col­lec­tion.

“It’s all the oldies. I’m 89 and they are from when I was young. We thought they were mar­vel­lous,” says the woman, who did not want to be named.

She says the records are all in their orig­i­nal cov­ers.

Mr Ma­son was de­lighted by the of­fer of help.

“I was taken aback. If she has some of the ti­tles we use on the dance floor, I’ll ask to have them.”

His records, turntable, speak­ers and mi­cro­phones were in his car when it was stolen from an One­hunga carpark on Septem­ber 10.
