In October I spoke to the Havelock North Rotary Club. Part of my presentation touched on the long waiting list that exists in NZ for people needing a cochlear implant.
Currently, there is a petition about the unacceptable waiting list in support of more funding.
I am writing to ask for your help; can you and your club members, friends and family please sign the petition in support of people in need of a cochlear implant?
Here is the link to the petition that is asking for an increase; I’d be very grateful if you could share this around your friends and family.
If you have any comments or questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all your members.

Message from Trish Giddens:-
So, I didn’t get home till 10.45 from our Christmas function. WHY: I couldn’t find my car keys!. Checked the Hall twice. Colin, Steve and Barbara with Colin’s torch and car lights shining across the grounds were helping me look for them. NO LUCK. Checked with the Tupperware party going on in the room next door – no they hadn’t seen them but could sell me some Tupperware. Damn – with Barbara’s phone – ring my daughter and son in law in Hastings – wake them both up thinking I would have to borrow one of their cars to get home to Waipukurau. THEN I thought – Gosh I wonder if I dropped them in one of the parcel bags I gave to the Christmas Appeal. With Steve’s phone this time – call to Peter Mayne who phones Jo Reyngould who dutifully searches, finds them and so returns with them from Flaxmere. In the interim offers to run me home, put me up for the night and them happily sit with me until my son-in-law comes to assist is all the very good reason I love the gentle genuine caring of my fellow Rotarians and their wives.
Merry Christmas everyone?.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM
