North Waikato News - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

The com­mu­nity of Huntly West is blessed to have lo­cal cou­ple Richard and Dolly Tu­mai serv­ing up kind­ness - and hearty burg­ers - each week from their road-side stall.

The pair are on a kind-hearted mis­sion to help their com­mu­nity - those strug­gling with day to day liv­ing - which seems to be get­ting more ex­pen­sive week in week out.

They serve up the world fa­mous in Huntly ‘easy burger’ chock-full with eggs, onions and ba­con, but as Caitlin re­ports on page 1 - they are not there to make a profit.

In­stead, af­ter cov­er­ing their own costs, the cou­ple in­ject their prof­its back into the com­mu­nity - dis­tribut­ing to where the money is needed most, help­ing out the town’s most needy.

‘‘Most of the time we strug­gle to get our money back, but that doesn’t faze us,’’ Richard said.

The North Waikato needs more com­mu­nity-driven peo­ple like Richard and Dolly - thanks for all you do.
