Par­tic­u­lar cu­tie

North Taranaki Midweek - - GARDENING -

Taranaki Red Cross is hold­ing its an­nual Red Rose Day Fundraiser on Fri­day Oc­to­ber 27.

For this day to be suc­cess­ful it needs your help - pre­par­ing the roses for sale on Thurs­day and sell­ing for Fri­day.

For Thurs­day rose prepa­ra­tion there will be two shifts: 10am - 1pm and 1pm 4pm at the Taranaki Ser­vice Cen­tre on 116 Gill Street, NP.

On Fri­day kind-hearted vol­un­teers are re­quired for a cou­ple of hours to sell in­di­vid­ual roses at var­i­ous lo­ca­tions around New Ply­mouth District.

Shifts for sell­ing th­ese beau­ti­ful roses are 8.30am - 10.30am and 2pm - 4pm. In Waitara and Bell Block shift times are yet to be con­firmed.

This fundraiser helps sup­port the lo­cal com­mu­nity pro­grammes that are run through­out the prov­ince. Some of those pro­grammes in­clude: med­i­cal equip­ment loan, Meals on Wheels de­liv­ery, Com­mu­nity Trans­port, bi-weekly magazine run at Taranaki Base Hospi­tal, break­fast at Mar­fell school and the No Lim­its youth pro­gramme.

The suc­cess of this ap­peal re­lies on the help of awe­some vol­un­teers.

Red Rose Day is one of the most pop­u­lar fundrais­ing events in the Red Cross cal­en­dar. Not only is it a sym­bol of the Red Cross the or­gan­i­sa­tion also has a spe­cially bred rose. This is ap­pro­pri­ately named Rose of Hu­man­ity.

Any help you can give will be grate­fully ap­pre­ci­ated. Oh my good­ness, we have pup­pies, very cute, very happy, snug­gly, squirmy gor­geous pup­pies. And this par­tic­u­lar cu­tie is Buster. He has a sis­ter called Brittany and while they are both adorable, they don’t look at all alike, she is black and white. If you want to help one or ei­ther grow up meet them at the North Taranaki SPCA, open 10am - 4pm Mon­day - Satur­day (closed Sun­days).

Yay our big spring clean is go­ing well at our Devon St Op Shop and we are now open again on Satur­days 9am-1pm. There are lots of bar­gains to be found as ev­ery­thing in the store is half price.
