Photo: MARGARET IRVINE Treat for those in treatment By MARGARET IRVINE An Upper Hutt couple were the joint organisers of a trip to Lindale for children receiving treatment for can- cer and kidney disorders. About 120 adults and children from around the region took part in the Midwinter Express on Saturday week organised by Tranz Metro train manager Wayne Bedford and his wife Rosemary of Totara Park and train manager Gary Innes of Lower Hutt. The men, involved in the Goodwill Express Salvation Army appeal at Christmas, came up with the idea last year and organised a train trip for families from Wellington for a day at Trentham Military Camp. This time their wheels were buses supplied free by New Zealand Coach Services in Lower Hutt. Cara Dunford, from Belmont, who travelled to Lindale with the whole family, including son Peter, 1, who is being treated for leukaemia, said the family outing was a nice way to meet other people who were in the same situation and to have a break. The youngsters enjoyed sheep shearing and cow milking demonstrations, roamed around the farm and Lindale complex, were entertained through the day and polished off 135 pizzas,'' said Virgi- nia Wilton, one of the farm managers. The emergency services came along. We had a police dog demon- stration and the fire brigade was there. The Otaki Social Riders came along with their Harleys. Christy Lewis, who was doing the face paint- ing, gave up her whole day and we had artists doing sketches of the youngsters. We were dumbstruck at the amount of help we had to make this such a successful day.'' Mrs Wilton and co-manager Wendy Rigarlsford were approached by Mr Bedford and Mr Innes months ago to see if they would host the chil- dren. The pair had run a similar trip to Trentham last year and said they again wanted to help provide joy to families living with the unknown every day''. Of course we said yes, and we offered to provide all the food and entertainment. Girls can do any- thing, you know. But we couldn't have managed without the amazing support of the individuals and busi- nesses who supplied the lunches, baked hundreds of gifts and gave us goodies for the children,'' Mrs Wilton said. We hope to make it an annual event. As well as sick children we have a big heart for the children whose families are not so well off and who can't afford treats.'' Mr Bedford said the rain started as the group was leaving. Top honour: Callum Upton, a St Joseph's Venturer Scout, has earned the highest achievement possible as a youth member of New Zealand Scouting. Callum has completed his Queen's Scout Award, training in leadership skills, risk management, camp craft and life skills. This award is the culmination of several years' hard work and determination, including several tramps (one of four days), safety modules, new skills and physical challenges. At the end of July, he will be presented with his Queen's Scout Award Certificate at Government House by the Governor-General and Chief Scout, Sir Anand Satyanand. The son of Grant and Jane Upton, Callum has been a member of St Joseph's Scout Group since he was six. He is the 43rd Venturer to have his name put on the St Joseph's Group's honours board.
