Grate­ful thanks for food drive sup­port

The Hutt News - - FRONT PAGE -

The Lower Hutt Com­mu­nity Food­bank thanks all those Lower Hutt res­i­dents who gave so gen­er­ously to the re­cent Food Drive.

We un­der­stand that bags were not col­lected from a small num­ber of streets, and we do apol­o­gise for this.

This fail­ure arose as a con­se­quence of a short­age of vol­un­teer col­lec­tors on the day.

We are also look­ing at whether there were some gaps be­tween the ar­eas cov­ered by the teams col­lect­ing.

We par­tic­u­larly thank those peo­ple who have brought un­col­lected bags to the Hutt News of­fice, the food­bank or our su­per­mar­ket bins.

We also want to ex­press our grat­i­tude to the Hutt News and Stuff for their gen­er­ous con­tri­bu­tion in once again ar­rang­ing for the dis­tri­bu­tion of the bags with the pa­per, and to PMP Dis­trib­u­tors for de­liv­er­ing the bags.

We thank the Lions and Ro­tary Clubs for their mag­nif­i­cent ef­fort in col­lect­ing the bags and sort­ing the con­tri­bu­tions.

A FIT­TING TRIB­UTE

The car­toon re­fer­ring to the life of rugby ‘‘Pine Tree’’ Meads ( Hutt News, Au­gust 29) was in my opin­ion very fit­ting and very apt.

In fact in first see­ing the il­lus­tra­tion my ini­tial thought was ‘‘bril­liant’’.

A state­ment of fact ex­pressed with­out a mul­ti­tude of words, clearly the work of an imag­i­na­tive and sen­si­tive mind.
