"When it comes to New Zealand sport, money breeds unhappiness"
Kevin Norquay is Stuff's Chief News Director (Sport). A journalist since 1985, he has worked as a sports, news and political journalist, covered three OIympic Games and three elections as well as numerous other major events. He also has the distinction of once being described as a disgrace to western journalism by Winston Peters.
Kevin will lead the discussion on the role of sports in New Zealand culture - how professional sport has sucked money and elite athletes out of community sport, how that money has put untoward mental and physical pressure on athletes and how the news media has followed the money, leaving community sports behind.
Venue: Yaza Café, Montgomery Square
Date: Wednesday, 28 April
Time: 7.30-9.30pm (meals & drinks available from 6pm)

The Ministry of Social Development has recently updated the Guide for Carers, a valuable resource for those who care for family, whānau, āiga or friends with a health condition, a disability, an injury, or a physical or mental illness.
It covers a range of topics such as financial help, assessing needs, getting help at home and being able to take a break from caring.
The Guide for Carers is available online now: bit.ly...
