The perfect Father's Day treat
The Northern Outlook took to the classrooms of North
Canterbury to ask children what they would do in a
perfect world for dad on Father's Day tomorrow.
Oxford Area School
Oliver Sillars, 5: I would give my
Dad some tools as a present, and I
would send him and my mum to
Hanmer Springs for two nights with-
out their children.
Cass Williams, 5: I would take my
Dad out for lunch to a cafe as a treat.
He would have a salad and then we
would go for a bike ride.
Rangiora Borough School
Shontee Campbell, 10: I would
love to cook my dad spaghetti
bolognaise, followed by coffee cake,
icecream and chocolate. Most of all, I
would love to give him a great big
Amelia Todd, 6: I would love to
give my Dad a great big bag of
yummy Minties. I would like to give
him a chainsaw, but only if he didn t
chop any trees down.
Flynn Cudmore, 5: I would clean
Dad s car inside and out.
Tegan Pain, 6: I would feed the
dogs for Dad, because that is always
Kaiapoi North School
Tori McLean, 13: I would throw
Dad a massive super-hero party,
because he loves super-heroes and he
is definitely a super-hero himself.
Flynn Blackler, 5: I would get Dad
a new fishing rod because he loves
fishing for snapper.
Pig hunt to raise life-saving funds
BIG DAY OUT:The South Island's biggest ever pig hunt will raise further funds to send
Rangiora's Inara Herdman to Europe to teach her to eat.
The hunt is on for more funds to
send Rangiora toddler Inara Herd-
man to Austria to learn how to eat.
The latest initiative is a pig hunt
in Murchison at the beginning of
October, which will be the biggest
event of its kind ever held in the
It is already drawing entries from
all over the island and has attracted
huge sponsor support, resulting in
an impressive prize table including
clothing, fuel vouchers, dog biscuits,
and a Rossi 44Mag rifle and scope. A
$2000 heli-rafting trip is also up for
grabs at auction.
My Dad did a lot of hunting --
that s how he put the food on the
table for us -- so when a friend whose
mum runs the Hampden Hotel sug-
gested it, it just felt right, Inara s
mother, Bonnie said. We re hoping
to raise up to $10,000 to go into
Inara s account, which is sitting at
$21,400 so far, thanks to everyone s
amazing support and generosity.
Inara s father, Ryan, is aiming to
add further to that total when he
shaves off his hair -- which has been
long for more than 20 years -- on her
birthday. The right to perform the
haircut is being auctioned on Trade
Me, and a handful of supporters
have already put up their hands to
join him on the day.
Now two years old, Inara was
diagnosed with a congenital
morgagni diaphragmatic hernia at
12 weeks gestation and givena5per
cent chance of surviving the preg-
nancy. Her condition meant she had
a hole in her diaphragm, which
allowed her liver, bowel, appendix
and part of her intestines to move
into her chest, crushing her lungs.
She has never eaten normally,
instead being fed through a tube into
her stomach for nine hours a day
from a machine that follows her
around. The family estimate they
will need about $50,000 to make the
trip to Europe and pay for the treat-
ment that will see her grow and
Unfortunately, the hunt is also on
for somewhere for them to live for a
month or more from September 17,
while their landlord carries out EQC
repairs on their home.
We re not sure what we re going
to do at this point, although it will be
great to have the house fixed.
AMI is willing to pay for us to
stay in a holiday home or motel, but
I can t find anywhere that isn t
booked out and where we can take
our little catdog -- a wee jack russell/
yorkie called Tubby -- and our elderly
cat, Bonnie says. There must be a
lot of work going on up here at the
moment, because everywhere s full
