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.
We live in unusual times. It all gets a bit much some days. So we're bringing you a much-needed dose of positivity to remind you that there's inspiration, kindness and quirkiness out there too.
