My Nice Neighbour nomination

Jan from Titirangi

Another shout out for Betty, only 90 years of age, from Titirangi, West Auckland, who is still doing some awesome community work. Received a call from Betty this morning to see if I could arrange to get some sheets to her, so she can make more dolls for Starship. The dolls are used by Starship to show children what is likely to happen when they have a medical procedure. Betty made 450 dolls for Starship last year. Betty you are truly one of the champions of our community.

You can check out today's edition of The Antidote - which features a cute puppy, the UK's longest-married couple, and Stewart Island's "savage" New Year's Eve here. If you'd like the Antidote delivered direct to your inbox, sign up here.
