South Canterbury Herald - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

In this edi­tion of the South Can­ter­bury Her­ald, re­porter Ben Au­lakh con­tin­ues our se­ries on vol­un­teer­ing.

New Zealand is the fourth most giv­ing coun­try in the world, ac­cord­ing to the World Giv­ing In­dex 2017. The giv­ing cat­e­gories cover do­na­tions, vol­un­teer time, and help­ing a stranger. Myan­mar had the high­est rates, fol­lowed by In­done­sia and Kenya.

To all vol­un­teers through­out our com­mu­nity, a sin­cere thank you.

This week­end will be the first of the ac­tion packed McKe­own Petroleum Wai­mate 50 mo­tor­sport fes­ti­val, with the hill climb and rally sprint.

Dur­ing the fol­low­ing week­end driv­ers will show their met­tle street rac­ing around the roads of the Wai­mate town­ship.

All age groups who love the smell of burn­ing rub­ber and get goose-bumps at the sound of revving en­gines are set for a great two week­ends of en­ter­tain­ment.

We hope you en­joy read­ing all the other lo­cal sto­ries we have rang­ing from em­broi­dery, to teach­ing per­for­mance skills.
