HOSPICE WISH LIST DIVE
Sunday was one of the coldest mornings we have had this winter, so everyone was rugged up for the weather at 7.00 in the morning, including those hearty soles in their convertibles, some of which had ragtops but choose to drive with them down, others didn’t have the choice. Then there were the rest of the convoy fully enclosed, trying to get heaters working and windscreens defrosted. We didn’t feel so sorry for those convertible drivers though on our return drive around lunch time, when the sun was shining they were taking in the spectacular views from their open-tops gazing up at the beautiful snow covered ranges. This month was our annual Hospice Drive, and a collection made by our members off the Arohanui Hospice wish list were donated. Clare Randal from Hospice accompanied us on this drive as did many of our members who are volunteers at Hospice. We travelled out through Opiki, Tokomaru, and down to Shannon, where we then headed out to Foxton and on to Waitarere beach. As we travelled down Ridge Road on our way to Foxton, the views would have been lovely instead it was quite mystical as we drove above the fog that blanketed the countryside. By the time we arrived at the beach for a short stop the sun was shining encouraging some to walk down to the water’s edge. From here it was on to Levin, taking in some of the residential area, then driving around Lake Horrowhenua, then up the Main Street of the town. From there it was a straight trip North to Potts Road to Murrayfield Café for a breakfast which was ready and waiting for us on our arrival.
We had loads of lovely prized to give away this month in the lucky draws. Linda and Brian donated two gift baskets of cheese’s which were won by Maurice and the other by Ray. Ken and Sheryl donated a garden voucher won byWarren and the two model cars donated were won by Peter and the other by Margaret. Thank You to all those who donated these wonderful prizes, each and every one of them will be enjoyed, I’m sure. The car of the month was Bonito and Tracey’s shiny red 1982 WB Holden Ute which is new to the CCBC this month. Cans of food, dried goods, toiletries, linen, and stationary were just some of the items the Classic Car Breakfast Club members gave so generously to be donated to Arohanui Hospice.
