That's what it takes to become New Zealand's Anzac of the Year. The award is open to all and honours a Kiwi or Kiwis who continue to embody the Anzac spirit exemplified in the 1915 story of New Zealand Gallipoli hero Private Richard Henderson. A 19-year-old Hender- son and his trusty don- key repeatedly brought in wounded soldiers under heavy fire with total disregard for his own safety. The award winner gets a bronze statuette of Richard Henderson and his noble steed as well as a framed bronze med- allion. It can be awarded for a single act or for signifi- cant service to New Zea- landers or the inter- national community but nominees must have exhibited the four qualities of comradeship, compassion, courage, and commitment beyond the call of duty. Nominations close February 28. See www.rsa.org.nz. Red Cross now needs help Call for help: Howick Bucklands Beach Red Cross president Robin Greig is calling on volunteers to collect for the annual appeal. Photo: NICOLA WILLIAMS By NICOLA WILLIAMS You never know when disaster will strike but you can be sure the Red Cross will be there when it does. Robin Greig has volun- teered for the Red Cross since he retired and has been president of his branch for the past 12 years. What I like about Red Cross as an organisation is if we say the money is going somewhere, it really goes there.'' A large part of Red Cross work is disaster relief and some money also goes towards local projects. The Red Cross was helping with the Christ- church earthquake like a shot,'' Mr Greig says. The Howick Bucklands Beach branch has volun- teer drivers who take people to hospitals and medical clinics. Members also run Meals on Wheels and first aid courses for pri- mary students. Mr Greig is seeking volunteers to collect for the annual appeal. Do something for others just by giving up a couple of hours of your time.'' Many of our volunteer collectors are in their 80s but are willing to give up their time for this won- derful organisation,'' Mr Greig says. There will be collection tables at supermarkets throughout the area from March 3 to 5. Phone 576-8769 if you can help. IN BRIEF Street collectors The Child Cancer Foundation is looking for volunteers to collect for its annual appeal which runs throughout March with a street collection on March 25. The foundation aims to raise $1 million to support children with cancer and their families. Just an hour or two collecting can make a real difference. Go to www.child cancer.org.nz or call 0800-424-453. Making a call A two-week workshop is being offered to help seniors join the text generation. The sessions will cover the basics of making a phone call or the more advanced features. Take your mobile phone and user book. Morning tea is provided. The course is free but donations will be gratefully received. The next course will be held at the St Johns Community Centre, 120 Great South Rd, Papatoetoe, from 10am to noon on February 17 and 24. Bookings are essential. Phone 279-4331. Crumbs! What a mess Tarmac sandwich: Traffic was diverted by hundreds of loaves of bread that spilled from this trailer after it detached from a car on Murphys Rd on Thursday afternoon. Photo: NICOLA WILLIAMS A woman is facing charges after travelling at such a speed that the trailer she was towing was caused to swing behind the car and snap the towbar. The car spun and hit a powerpole and the trailer spun into the centre of the road spill- ing its contents. Sergeant Andrew Readings says it was lucky there were no other cars on the road. The woman was not injured.
