The equipment will be used for much needed plastic and recons- tructive surgery desi- gned to help patients get their lives back on track. The Manukau Courier is part of the Mad Butcher and Suburban Newspapers Community Trust. We launched Oper- ation Heal earlier this month and have been overwhelmed by the level of public support from our readers -- your cheques, cash and text donations are much appreciated. Trust chairman Sir Peter Leitch and his wife Janice kicked things off with a $10,000 contri- bution that has just been matched with a cheque for the same amount from the Hugh Green Charitable Trust. Spokesman John Green challenge other businesses to do the same and help Operation Heal achieve its goal. Corporate and other organisations can also get on board by purchas- ing a table at the charity fundraising dinner being held on December 3 at the TelstraClear Pacific Event Centre as part of the campaign. The evening starts at 7.30pm and will include live and silent auctions and live music. The guest speaker will be Prime Minister John Key who will be inter- viewed by Paul Holmes. Diners will enjoy a superb meal with compli- mentary beer from Lion Breweries and fine wine from Glengarry in a fes- tive atmosphere. Tickets cost $1850 + GST for a table of 10 or $185 + GST per per- son. Call Shandall on 531-5910 for more information or email shandall@mad butcher.co.nz for information. Fresh cookies for dyslexia The annual Cookie Time Christmas fundraiser to help kids with dyslexia is under way. Each year the Christchurch-based com- pany recruits tertiary students to sell red buckets full of freshly- baked cookies. A dollar from each bucket sold goes to the Cookie Time Charitable Trust, principal sponsor of the Dyslexia Foun- dation of New Zealand. The Christmas cookies appeal raised $210,000 last year, taking total donations to the trust to more than a $1 million since 1985. To order Christmas cookies buckets, phone 0800 XCOOKIE or visit www.cookietime.co.nz to request a seller to call at your workplace. See www.ctct.org.nz for more on the Cookie Time Charitable Trust s support for kids with dyslexia.
