Meet Eddie Writes. He's 7, and won a Wellingtonian of the Year award for philanthropy. He spends his spare time tie-dying t-shirts and ironing patches on bags to sell online - raising $10,000 for Wellington Regional Hospital. We bet there's lots of Eddies out there. Tell us about your kids' kind deeds in the comments.
Hi, The article written by a journalist at stuff.co.nz puts this far better than I ever could.. and I have witnessed both floods.
Please watch the short video clip .. it just shows how devastating the flooding is in their home.
This is the 2nd time in 3 years its happened, and we have lived here for almost 30 years. The new haywards interchange now funnels water volumes down storm water drains that spill out and floods properties on ford road and the adjacent flats in the Square.
Its bloody heart breaking to watch the families go through this a 2nd time.
The storm water drainage needs over hauling here in manor park ... With the new soon to be built 27 homes .on ford road and manor park road... This water has no where to go ... but into peoples homes !
