The event on May 12 is being organised by the Pakuranga Rotary Club, with proceeds going to the Spi- nal Cord Society (SCSNZ). For a donation at the door, people can attend an Evening with Nadia Lim, with all money collected going towards the purchase of equipment for a type 1 diabetes cure trial. The evening starts at 6.30pm at the Waipuna Hotel and Conference Cen- tre at Mt Wellington and is open to the public. People also have the option of a buffet meal with the Rotarians at the venue, starting at 5.30pm and costing $28. The idea for the fund- raiser was advanced by club member Nick Loseby, whose daughter developed type 1 diabetes two years ago at the age of 16. “I saw what it did to her and what it took from her,” says Mr Loseby. “The biggest thing is the absolute removal of spontaneity. “For example, she can’t just go out with her friends and have an ice cream. “Every day she has to check her blood sugar then calculate calories and how much insulin she will need to inject. It’s always there. She always has to think about it.” Mr Loseby approached the club’s board about having Ms Lim talk to members and guests about healthy eating and her experience as a nutritionist. The board agreed and also sug- gested the evening be opened up to anyone wanting to learn from the food star. “I approached Nadia with the idea and, after many phone calls and emails, managed to set the May 12 date. She’s incredibly busy so it has been a difficult job to get a suitable date, but we got there in the end,” says Mr Loseby. “Nadia has also kindly offered to donate $15 from each of her books sold on the night to our chosen cause, which is SCSNZ.” Diabetes NZ and SCSNZ have ■ teamed up in the quest to cure type 1 diabetes. “Because spinal cord injury and type 1 diabetes could both be cured by adult stem cells, we have become ‘brothers in arms’,” says SCSNZ pres- ident Noela Vallis. “Working together, we have a much greater chance of getting the funding we need to find cures for two conditions that have had so little attention for so long. “My fight for spinal cord injury began with my late husband Keith’s accident years ago. “Our research scientist Paul Turner has had type 1 diabetes for far longer, 43 years, and our team has grown to include a number of other people with type 1.” TV chef is star attraction NADIA LIM MARCHING LAST FRIDAY: Howick RSA president Mike Cole says it has already started planning for the 100th Anzac Day next April 25. Times photo Wayne Martin Pleasing turnout HOWICK RSA president Mike Cole is delighted with the success of Anzac Day. “Once again the citizens of our local community have come out in large numbers to show their support at the dawn and civic service parades at Stockade Hill on Anzac Day. “The numbers this year were as big as any I have seen. “It gives me pleasure to know that veterans are not forgotten and are held in high esteem throughout the community. “The support we have received from the donations from Poppy Day have been most generous and I thank all those who have made a contribution,” says Mr Cole. “As we pass one Anzac Day, we’re confronted with probably the biggest commemorations, for the 100th Anzac Day in 2015. “I look forward to this day in conjunction with the Howick Local Board and the support of local citizens.” LEST WE FORGET The Times continues its tribute to the Anzacs and the first centenary for World War I with coverage on pages 5, 8, 19, 20, 21, and photos from Anzac Day on page 9.
