A HEAD shave by the store and meat managers of a Highland Park supermarket has raised $1700 for an annual children’s hospital appeal. Countdown Highland Park store manager Ken Lawrence and meat manager Midi Shortland submitted their tresses to the razor on October 17. Their sacrifice was to collect money for the Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal. Ms Shortland donated her exceptionally long hair to be made into a wig to support patients in need. As part of the national appeal, which started in August and finished on October 24, the Highland Park team also ran guess the lolly jar competitions, in-store silent auctions, mufty days, and a shared lunch where all brought food and paid a donation. Money raised by the event, previously known as the Fresh Future Children’s Hospital Appeal, goes to buying medical equipment for 10 dedicated children’s hospitals and wards, including Kidz First Children’s Hospital at Middlemore.

Photos supplied / Grant Thompson released and they raised the roof with the loudest cheering and applause of the night. The conducting of the band was absolutely superb and his com- mentary made the occasion one to remember. This is one utterly dedicated group of young musicians and they deserve all the support we can muster on future occasions. John Chant, Cockle Bay Questioning queried AM I alone in pointing out the excess security questioning on non-financial matters with various companies? An example, I phone an insur- ance company to adjust an address of mine. I give them my policy number. I’m then asked for my date of birth, name of my pet, and colour of my first car. These were asked at policy pro- posal time, and again at every sub- sequent phone contact. I decline to answer date of birth, name my pet elephant called Edward, and red and black spotted 1937 MGTF. Maybe that insurance company will survive, and build a database of extraordinary value to some dan- gerous terrorist. R. J. S.
