Christmas embodies a real and inclusive generosity that no other time of the year can match. Yes, there is stress, but there is also kindness – to those alone and in need.
MECOSS is overwhelmed with the mammoth response to the call put out just over two weeks ago by the 'Sending Love charity', for contributions of Christmas cards crafted with hand written messages, for distribution to elderly people in our East Auckland community, who’re confined to an age-care facility this festive season.
If you’d like to help spread some Christmas cheer, you can write a message on a Christmas greeting card and post it in the drop-box located in the foyer of the All Saints’ Community Centre, 30 Cook Street, Howick, every day between 8:00am and 4:30pm until Friday, 15 December.
If you’d prefer to personalise a Christmas card, paper crafting company 'Close To My Heart in America', has donated beautiful cards in conjunction with Megan Lawrence from 'Crop Craft Create', who has donated two drop-in sessions to help you fashion something a little bit special and turn them into a collectable keepsake that’ll be cherished by the recipient.

I would like to buy this kind of bed for my son. Do you know someone who can make it ?
Wife went to Chemist Warehouse, Botany to pick up prescriptions. When she got given them she checked them off against the receipt. One item was missing but receipt said it was issued. When she asked about it, they said it was out of stock and they'll owe her. She asked about the incorrect receipt and got told it was just their system and not to worry. Wife did worry and wouldn't let it go and got them to amend the receipt showing the allegedly issued medication as 'owing'.
According to the original receipt she was issued with prescribed medication when in reality she hadn't. Have a safe summer.
Has anybody had to replace the rubbers in there Aluminium windows if so could i have a contact number my rubbers are stuffed. Regards Dave
