' Veronica Bennett Te Puna Whaiora business manager A new trial is under way in Upper Hutt to provide friendly support to families with children who have mild to moderate disabilities or chronic health conditions. Te Puna Whaiora, the Children s Health Camps Foun- dation, is trialling the Family Friends programme with about 10 families in the Hutt Valley dur- ing the next eight months. The programme is a response to an increase in requests for help from families of children with dis- abilities and aims to reduce stress on families and strengthen their ability to manage as a family. The service is looking for volunteers to be family friends -- potential life-long friends who can share skills and offer support which could range from chatting over a cup of tea to social outings with the family or helping out with activities to positive role- modelling. Family friends could be people that families in the programme already know, or volunteers from the wider community. Te Puna Whaiora business manager Veronica Bennett says the normal stresses and challenges that every family faces can become overwhelming for fam- ilies where a child has a chronic health condition or a disability. We know that for these famil- ies, being able to rely on a strong and generous extended family is critical to success and survival, she says. The aim of this project is to create an extended family or village around each one of the families that will provide support that is caring and non- judgmental. Anyone wanting to find out more about the programme can contact Ms Bennett on 472 0101, 027 644 1115, or send an email to veronica.bennett @healthcamps.org.nz Sausage scoff on Saturday Make sure you have an empty stomach for the Upper Hutt Export Meat sausage-eating competition this Saturday. Owner Steve Bailey says the sec- ond annual sausage scoff will run from noon till 1pm. We will be out in front of the store so people can stop by and join up or see what s happening. They [competitors] start off with a hiss and a roar, but they slowly whittle out. The winner will be awarded a $100 meat voucher and the title of fastest sausage eater. Mr Bailey says sometimes the little guys can eat more than the big guys. You do not have to be big to win it. Last year s winner did not have an ounce of fat on him. The record is 17 sausages in an hour. Export Meats will also have their custom 1955 FJ Holden Ute with a built-in barbecue at the event. They will be selling sausages for the Kids Can Stand Tall charity.
