Every year the foundation makes grants to New Zealand charities, carrying on the late actor Paul Newman s philan- thropic legacy. Age Concern Counties Manu- kau has received $20,000 to sup- port its mission to serve the needs of the elderly. It will use the grant to provide a handy- man service to its elderly members. Most will go towards the costs of a trade van and tools. Age Concern supports 1700 members in Counties Manukau. Last year it succeeded in matching 80 clients in its visiting service, delivered more than 50 health promotion programmes and helped many people with transport and tech- nology needs. Newman s Own Foundation president Robert Forrester says Paul Newman s commitment to making the world a better place remains a lasting legacy. All the after-tax profits from the sale of Paul Newman s Own products continue to go to charity. When people would thank Paul for his charitable giving, he would always reply that he didn t think he was doing any- thing special, Mr Forrester says. To date the foundation has donated more than $300 million to thousands of charities throughout the world. Pupils win foundation's innovation prize Healthy hearts: Journey Rehu, Janice Diamond, Carlea Rameka and Heart Foundation mascot Hearty celebrate Finlayson Park School's Heart Foundation innovation prize. Kids at Finlayson Park School are putting their heart and soul into healthy food and exer- cise. They ve taken first place in the Heart Foundation s Innovation Prize. The inaugural compe- tition rewards schools that are working on innovative, heart healthy initiatives. Finlayson Park School was recognised for the efforts of its student health team, led by health co-ordinator Janice Diamond. Known as the Finlayson Funky Few Student Health Team, they run a daily break- fast club, promote healthy eating at assemblies and have helped establish 52 school gardens and eight whanau gardens. They also ran a special break- fast and organised two discos to raise $600 for the school s World Vision sponsor child Denis. We want to give our children the best edu- cation and the chance to learn, principal Shirley Maihi says. We have found when the children are eating properly they are much more settled and ready to learn.
