South Waikato News - - Your Paper, Your Place -

We have a lovely story on page 4 to­day about a fam­ily that, de­spite at times strug­gling them­selves, have reached out to help oth­ers in need.

Kelly Marie Re­ti­man epit­o­mizes what the South Waikato com­mu­nity is full of­car­ing peo­ple who al­ways seem will­ing to help out those less for­tu­nate.

We are lucky to have peo­ple like Kelly out there.

What she did wasn’t mas­sive, but it would have made a huge dif­fer­ence to the peo­ple she do­nated the gro­ceries to that week.

The world needs more peo­ple like Kelly.

So next time you are do­ing your gro­ceries, buy a few ex­tra items and do­nate them to the lo­cal food bank.

Kelly has proven that it doesn’t need to cost the earth to help out some­one. So let’s all give it a try. Also this week we check-out Man­gakino’s best kept se­cret- the Hui Hut.

If you haven’t al­ready, so and try one of their great cof­fees.
