Ro­tary club grate­ful

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Ed­i­tor,

The mem­bers of the Ro­tary Club of Porirua Sun­down would like to pass on a really big thank-you to the pub­lic of our great city.

The Ro­tar­i­ans, with the sup­port of the mem­bers of the lo­cal Zonta club, ran the Christ­mas gift wrap­ping stand in the Porirua Mall dur­ing the month of De­cem­ber.

We asked mem­bers of the pub­lic if they would make a gold coin do­na­tion for hav­ing their presents wrapped and the re­sult was both de­light­ful and hum­bling. Over $8000 has been raised to feed back into wor­thy causes in this com­mu­nity and to help out our Pa­cific neigh­bours dur­ing the next 12 months.

So, to all those peo­ple who brought their presents to the stand, a really big thank-you for giv­ing Ro­tary (and Zonta) the chance to help out so many oth­ers.

The gen­er­ous sup­port of the North City Shop­ping Cen­tre man­age­ment team was also an im­por­tant con­trib­u­tor to this, so thank you for that help also.

I can only hope that for both her and us, the gen­eral pub­lic, the thief de­vel­ops some sort of la­tent con­science, and re­turns the work. As a pho­tog­ra­phy stu­dent with a pas­sion for this form of cre­ativ­ity, I feel a marked em­pa­thy for Vic­to­ria and her plight.
