Storage is a bit of a headache for the shop especially in the lead-up to Christmas. So it's returning some of that generosity and holding a $5 dollar fill a bag week each week until the shop closes on December 23. People can grab a bag at the shop and fill it with items they fancy -- all for $5. The shop is on the corner of Great South and Tui roads, Papatoetoe. Phone Tracey on 278-4654 for more information. Pinking caps on A fundraiser that turned car tyres pink has been a huge success. Firestone's 2010 Pink Cap Drive raised more than $150,000 for the Breast Cancer Foundation. This year the $2 pink caps weren't just seen on family cars but also on business fleets and fire trucks. Bridgestone New Zealand director Ken Oyama says Kiwis have rallied around the Pink Cap Drive and came out in force to support the cause once again. ''This year we wanted to exceed the $64,000 that we raised in 2008 so we did everything on a larger scale and it's paid off. We are thrilled to have donated more than $220,000 to the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation over the two campaigns.'' Snow fun on Santa Claus' big day Santa's in town: Thousands turned out for an evening of festive fun during the Mangere Santa Parade. By MELISSA KINEALY This year's Mangere Santa Parade was the biggest and best ever -- and it even snowed. More than 6000 people flooded on to the streets of Mangere Bridge Village to take in last Saturday's par- ade. Around 50 community groups got involved with the parade which included floats from Manukau City Parks, Ambury Farm Park, Mangere Bridge Lions Club and the Manukau Rovers Rugby Foot- ball Club. A police car flashed its lights and turned on its siren to start the parade, then came sounds of the pipes and drums. Familiar faces like Shrek, Puss n' Boots, Spiderman and Superman got the kids smiling and Santa had the Gingerbread Man and Pen- guin to help him hand out the lollies. It was the first time it had snowed during the annual parade, all thanks to a snow- making machine on Santa's float. There were also pedestrian floats from Cubs and Keas and the local pony club while the Sea Scouts came to the party with a machine churning out bubbles. Jiggles the Clown cruised around on his miniature motorbike and afterwards pulled out his juggling and balloon modelling skills. Craft stalls and tasty treats were on offer and kids had free rides on Daisy the double decker bus and lined up to try a pony-and-cart ride. Mangere Bridge Village manager Carol-Anne Armi- tage, who's been planning the event since August, says it was biggest parade ever and was an absolutely wonderful time with a great turn out''. The community atmos- phere was really great. Everyone was commenting on the lovely warm feeling. Just seeing how happy everyone was makes it all worth it. People just wanted to mill around, talk to friends and enjoy the atmosphere.''
