Central Leader - - NEWS -

More than 3000 peo­ple turned up for the an­nual Mad Butcher and Sub­ur­ban News­pa­pers Com­mu­nity Trust Fam­ily Fun Day at the Eller­slie Race­course.

Ev­ery­one en­joyed free ice­cream courtesy of Tip Top, a sausage siz­zle, games, rides, a visit from Santa and horse rac­ing.

Sir Peter Leitch, also known as the Mad Butcher, says the day gives the trust an op­por­tu­nity to thank the peo­ple of Auck­land for their sup­port.

The trust has raised hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars for char­i­ties across the re­gion since it formed in 1998.
