Sending Love Christmas Cards for the Elderly

Lindsay Upton from Manukau East Council of Social Services (MECOSS)

Christmas may be weeks away, but it’s not too early to start thinking about the numerous elderly folk who may find themselves alone this festive season.
MECOSS is putting out a call to the east Auckland community, for contributions of Christmas cards penned with hand written messages.
A collection drop-box will be set up in the foyer of the All Saints’ Community Centre, 30 Cook Street, Howick, every day between 8:00am and 4:00pm from Monday 5 November until Friday 7 December.
Then before Christmas, the 'Sending Love' charity will distribute the cards you've crafted, to people in our community who’re elderly and living alone, or who're confined to an age-care facility.

Reminder to check your receipts

Steve from Pakuranga Heights

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.
