Also present were Ollie's dad Gary and grandparents Rosie and Bryan. LET'S HEAR IT FOR THE BOY A day of events, fun, activities for children and live music takes place at Wild on Waiheke on Onetangi Rd this Sunday from noon to 5pm, with all proceeds going towards Ollie's operation. An auction of $10,000 of earthworks, a painting by Mike Morgan and a gas fired cooker are up for grabs. Entertainment will be by Al Reeve, Pat Urlich and V12, MC Bruce Davis-Goff and Otherworld Productions. The venue is fully licensed, no BYO. Entry is $10 adults, children under 12 are free, $10 for the kidszone activities. Ollie Davies is one step closer to having the cochlear implant operation that will help him hear. He celebrated his fourth birthday collecting a cheque for $2000 from members of the RSA in Ostend. Ollie, who was born pro- foundly deaf, his dad Gary, grandparents Rosie and Bryan and brother Sean were welcomed by RSA secretary Brendan Demchy and presi- dent Bill Howling. Also present was Jassy Dean Trust chairman Greg Dean who collected the cheque on Ollie s behalf. The trust, which helps sick Wai- heke children and their famil- ies, kickstarted Gary Davies campaign to raise the $40,000 needed for the operation with a $10,000 donation last year. Let s Hear it For the Boy, at Wild on Waiheke this Sunday aims to complete the fundraising effort. RSA welfare officer Rick Owen raised the idea of mak- ing a donation towards the cause. The amount was agreed at a special meeting of the RSA committee on December 12. It was a sizeable donation -- the largest of the year, Mr Demchy says. We usually donate about $5000 to $6000 per year. As to why the RSA chose to support Ollie, Mr Demchy says helping a youngster completely matches our aims. Overseas visitors among entries Nearing the finish: Runners in last year's Wharf2Wharf fun run and walk. WHARF2WHARF EVENTS Saturday, January 15 25km Orapiu to Matiatia, starts 8.30am 13km Orapiu to Onetangi, starts 8.30am 12km Onetangi to Matiatia, starts 9.30am 7km Kennedy Point to Matiatia, starts 10.30am. Entry forms available at BNZ or enter online at www.wharf2wharf.co.nz. Runners and walkers from as far away as Eng- land, Canada and Aust- ralia are among those who have signed up for this Saturday s Wharf- 2Wharf fun run and walk. Chairman of the fun run committee David Healy of Waiheke Rotary says registrations are now well advanced with the numbers ahead of last year, when nearly 1000 took the streets on a variety of courses between Orapiu and Matiatia. As usual, regis- trations tumble in over the final few weeks before the event and of course there are those who leave registration to the last moment and even on the ferries chartered to bring entrants to the island. Pressure is building as the January 15 run looms closer, he says. Members of Waiheke Rotary and Dolphin Netball Club are getting ready for the big day. They will be making sure all the runners and walkers are safe on the roads. Mr Healy says the organisation of the finish line at Matiatia is a huge job, involving a lot of high-tech equipment to record the start and fin- ish of the four events. Parched runners will benefit from water stops along the course manned by volunteers from dif- ferent organisations and clubs. The ideas for themes for stops and fancy dress outfits for the volunteers are now being put into action. The stops are a high- light for participants and supporters with the most popular stops winning a prize for their hard work. The committee is geared up to deal with 1200 runners and walk- ers, Mr Healy says. The numbers will take some handling, but weareuptoitwithan experienced committee in full swing. Bank staff lend hand Ideas are wanted for BNZ s annual Closed for Good Day. All BNZ banks will close on March 9 to allow staff to head out into the community to help. Anyone with any ideas of what the staff at BNZ, Oneroa, can do should tell them at the Ocean View Rd branch or visit www.closedforgood.org by January 26.
