The new sponsor is a manu- facturing retail jeweller with stores in Lambton Quay and Johnsonville. We are thrilled to welcome the Pacific Jewellers team, in particu- lar the principals of the company Colin and Penny Lester, for sup- porting the Wellington Racing Club for both the cup and the overall sponsorship of the three- day carnival on January 21, 23 and 28,'' the president of the Wel- lington Racing Club, John Fokerd, says. The previous sponsor was Terry Serepisos' Century City Developments. Next to the Rugby Sevens the Wellington Cup Carnival is the second most popular summer event in Wellington and our com- pany is passionate about endors- ing events in the region,'' Pacific Jewellers' Colin Lester says. We are a Wellington-based company supporting an iconic Wellington event, this is by far our biggest commitment but we feel Wellington Cup Carnival deserves support and we are thrilled to be involved from 2012. We are keen to develop a strong working partnership with the Wellington Racing Club, its patrons and others in the racing community, and all going well we plan to be associated with Wellington Cup Carnival beyond 2012,'' Mr Lester says. The Wellington Cup Carnival kicks off with the Trentham Wine and Racing Festival on Saturday, January 21. Ten boutique wineries and live music all day will be topped off with the carnival's best racing -- with five black type races including the iconic Telegraph Handicap. Trentham continues its carnival atmosphere for the Interislander Summer Festival Family Day on Wellington Anniversary Monday, January 23, with loads of free activities and entertainment especially for the kids. The Pacific Jewellers Welling- ton Cup Carnival then moves into the jewel in Wellington Racing Club's crown, Pacific Jewellers Wellington Cup Day, Saturday, January 28, where the well- dressed crowds gather for the run- ning of the Wellington Cup and the best of the best horses compete for Wellington's most prestigious trophy, the Wellington Cup. Papal award for dedicated service Big surprise: Mary Richardson with her papal medal and certificate for a lifetime's lay work in the Catholic church. Photo: ROSEMARY McLENNAN By ROSEMARY McLENNAN Upper Hutt woman Mary Rich- ardson has added a papal medal to her many awards for a life- time's service to the Upper Hutt community. Mrs Richardson, 88, was tricked into attending an earlier Sunday mass, only to find out the reason Archbishop John Dew was there was to honour her. It was a big surprise.'' Members of the Catholic Women's League, who had nomi- nated Mrs Richardson when she was still their president, proposed a special mass for the league ladies, especially those in rest homes or who were ill. On the day they were told to sit at the front of the church. Archbishop Dew in his homily talked about honouring someone but Mrs Richardson still did not click. The Pro Ecclesia Et Pontifice medal, established in 1888, is for distinguished service to the Roman Catholic Church and the highest honour it can give a layperson. Plans for the presentation were upset when Mrs Richardson's doc- tor found she had a racing heart and sent her to Hutt Hospital. She spent three nights there and missed the last meeting of the Upper Hutt Save the Children group where she has always run a special raffle. Mrs Richardson joined the league soon after she married Arthur 64 years ago. She became its first diocesan president who did not live in Wel- lington city, national president in the 1980s and represented the league on other organisations. She did not return to paid work once the couple's three children were all grown up, but invested her time in many local groups. She was president of the Upper Hutt Hapai Club for more than 40 years until it closed, and is still involved in the league, Citizens Advice Bureau, Charles Burns Trust, MASH and is a JP. She received a Queen's Service Order, Upper Hutt civic award (the first to a local woman), a suff- rage medal and many other service awards. Mrs Richardson is a Friend of Expressions and a volunteer there. I feel strongly that if you still do something, keep doing it. It would be dreadful not to do any- thing,'' she says. I think it is wrong to think the world owes you a living. People at home can still even phone others to encourage them.''
