Pop a present under the ‘giving tree’ By Nikki Papatsoumas
A local business is encouraging the community to light up a child’s life this Christmas by contributing to its ‘giving tree’. Headstart Hair Design in Kilbirnie has erected a ‘giving tree’ inside the salon. Salon coordinator Taryn Penfold said the tree was covered in gift tags for children between the ages of five and 16.
She said the idea was for staff, clients and members of the community to collect a gift tag, buy a present and place it under the tree. All presents would then be donated to the Salvation Army in Kilbirnie, so they could be distributed to children this Christmas. Taryn said this was the second year they had erected a giving tree after it proved wildly successful last year. “We also choose to help older kids, as we
Celebrating 800th anniversary of the Magna Carter A large group of local lawyers will celebrate the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta in song. The Magna Carta of 1215 is widely regarded as the foundation stone of democracy and the rule of law. Next Tuesday, more than 60 Wellington lawyers will celebrate its anniversary with the ‘Counsel in Carol’ event. The event will form part of worldwide Magna Carta celebrations this year. The concert will feature works associated with freedom and personal liberty, including Verdi’s Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves and Beethoven’s Ode to Joy from his 9th Symphony. The centrepiece of the concert is what the organisers believe to be the New Zealand premiere of Kurt Weill’s Ballad of Magna Carta - a 15 minute cantata for orchestra, choir and soloists dramatically telling the story of the sealing of the Magna Carta in 1215. Counsel in Concert is based at Crown Law and has been running since 2009. The choir and orchestra are comprised of lawyers from throughout the Wellington region and law staff from Crown Law, augmented by members of the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and Orchestra Wellington. The event is a charity concert raising funds for the Child Cancer Foundation Counsel in Concert will be held next Tuesday, December 15 at 12.30pm and 5.30pm at St Andrew’s on The Terrace. Entry by donation and all proceeds to the Child Cancer Foundation.
Grant for residents association The Island Bay Residents’ Association has been granted a $1500 operational grant by the Wellington City Council. President Vicki Greco said the association was pleased to have received the grant, which would be used towards building a website and getting things off the ground. She said the association was now focusing on going out to the community to see what they would like to see happen in Island Bay. Suggestions would be used to develop a 10 year plan for Island Bay, which will then be presented to council, Vicki said. The next meeting of the Island Bay Residents’ Association will be held on December 14, from 7pm, at the Mornington Golf Club.
feel that they are sometimes overlooked for present donations, as teenagers can sometimes be more difficult to buy for,” Taryn said. If you would like to place a present under the giving tree, pop into Headstart Hair Design at 10 Rongotai Rd in Kilbirnie, before Saturday December 19.
