Jim Lischner has re­signed from the board of the Ash­bur­ton Trust. The board’s chair Fay Wat­son said Lischner had been an in­te­gral part in help­ing guide the board on its way to a new busi­ness model for the Ash­bur­ton Trust, and the Trust thanked him for his wis­dom, guid­ance and busi­ness acu­men over the past four years.


Moun­tains of clothes for kids have been do­nated to Christchurch Hos­pi­tal’s Ward 22, thanks to Mid Cantabri­ans. Jackie Dwyer, whose son Mad­dox spent time on the ward a few weeks ago, saw a need for the hos­pi­tal to have clothes – par­tic­u­larly py­ja­mas and un­der­wear – on hand for kids who find them­selves in hos­pi­tal on short no­tice, as well as ne­ces­si­ties for par­ents, like de­odor­ant. Dwyer was in­un­dated, and over­whelmed, by the re­sponse and the do­na­tions re­ceived, as were the hos­pi­tal staff.
