FEEL GOOD FUNDS
Easter is almost here and the weather is cooling. Of all the holidays we celebrate, Easter is my favourite. The sun is usually lower in the sky and the red leaves on the ground always make me feel warm and nostalgic.
There is also a warm, community feel to this week’s edition.
On the front we feature a group of Timaru woman who have spent the past few years raising money for Syria’s Forgotten Families. Their hard work has raised $24,000.
Another fundraising effort is the story about Chase Pinnell on page 27. His school has raised enough money for his family to buy a mobility van for Chase’s wheelchair. Donations were received from groups such as Lions, as well as donations from his school community and people who don’t know Chase but wanted to help.
His principal Ian Poulter, of Bluestone School, said the donations showed what a terrific community we live in, where we proudly look after one another. I couldn’t agree more.
