South Canterbury Herald - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

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.
