Rest home digs deep for fire vic­tims

Franklin County News - - News -

With the tragic events of the Mel­bourne fires and the dread­ful loss of lives and homes, the res­i­dents of Lake­side Re­tire­ment Lodge in Pukekohe de­cided to start a col­lec­tion to help in some small way.

The res­i­dents now have a col­lec- tion box for their Fire Fund, which they keep in the foyer of the rest home, so vis­i­tors also see it. The con­tainer is rapidly fill­ing.

Al­though their Su­per­an­nu­a­tion does not go far, the res­i­dents have been gen­er­ous in their do­na­tions.
