WANTED: A Porirua grandfather and for­mer me­chanic who res­cued a cou­ple of Auck­lan­ders whose car broke down be­tween Taupo and Ro­torua in Fe­bru­ary.

The friendly cou­ple, now from Nel­son, who had a dodgy Dae­woo sta­tion wagon are ea­ger to thank him.

And so are we. This good sort has in­spired a new se­ries of ar­ti­cles high­light­ing those who do a lot of good but of­ten go un­men­tioned. We’re call­ing it Our Peo­ple. We have ideas al­ready, but what we are re­ally af­ter is rec­om­men­da­tions from you about any­one you think de­serves a men­tion.

It could be some­one you know who does some­thing kind, some­thing thought­ful, any­thing for the sake of help­ing some­one else.

We will fol­low it up and, if they’re keen, work on an ar­ti­cle for Our Peo­ple that might in­spire an­other to be just like that Porirua grandfather.

- Se­nior re­porter Jared Nicoll
