By GILL ALCOCK The final chapter of the Stars in Your Eyes fundraising extrava- ganza has taken place with the total raised announced and a cheque handed over to the designated charity. Organisers the Wai Wai Girls -- Raewyn Neilsen, Sarah Williams and Marg Graydon -- col- lected $28,000 for their chosen charity Hospice Waiheke Homecare. This came from ticket sales to the two heats and grand final evening at Te Huruhi School hall, raffles and a major auc- tion. The auction at the grand final saw auctioneers Barry Hast- ings and Sir Peter Leitch successfully cajole members of the audience into parting with serious sums of money for items ranging from signed rugby league jerseys to luxury accommodation. The Wai Wai Girls met hospice manager Mags McLeod at Homecare Waiheke Hospice house on Wharf Rd last week to reveal the grand total and present her with the cheque. Ms McLeod says she was surprised and thrilled with the incred- ible $28,000 the Wai Wai Girls had raised. We can now purchase the new bed and electric La-Z-Boy chair that the hospice has been urgently needing, Ms McLeod says. The girls have done a fabulous job. They have raised an amazing sum of money and everyone enjoyed themselves at the Stars In Your Eyes evenings. Charity banquet for Chch Show of thanks: Sir Peter Leitch, aka the Mad Butcher, with Canterbury District Police Commander, superintendent Dave Cliff, during a barbecue for emergency workers at the Christchurch Police Station. Calling all business people. Here is your chance to treat your clients and staff to an evening they won t forget. The Mad Butcher and Sub- urban Newspapers Community Trust is holding its Ultimate Midwinter Christmas Cel- ebration at the SkyCity Auck- land Convention Centre on June 30. Proceeds will go to the Prime Minister s Earthquake Appeal and Kidney Kids. Trust chairman Sir Peter Leitch visited Christchurch last month, speaking with some of the February 22 quake victims in hospital and offering support to emergency workers. Their courage is incredible, he says. You have to see it to believe it. Sir Peter says the upcoming function gives corporates the chance to host clients and friends at a memorable event while supporting a worthy cause. We cannot do enough in my opinion, he says. Please do everything you can to get together some people to attend. Every cent raised goes to charity, Sir Peter says. Guest speaker will be All Black Coach Graham Henry. Comedian Ewen Gilmour will also be on hand to keep people smiling and music will be pro- vided by the band Black Salt. The night includes VnC cocktails on arrival, a superb three-course meal, complimen- tary beer from Lion Breweries and fine wine from Glengarry. Tickets are $3000 plus GST for a table of 10 or $300 plus GST per seat. Book now by phoning Shandall on 531-5910 or email her at shandall@mad butcher.co.nz. Donations to the Prime Minister's Earthquake Appeal can be made at www.christ churchearthquake appeal.govt.nz or at any branch of the Westpac bank.

MPs have also voted in a zero alcohol limit for drivers under 20 and have approved making restricted licence road tests more difficult. This is intended to encourage 120 hours of supervised driving in the learner licence stage. The new tests are expected to be implemented in February 2012. New Zealand Transport Agency chief Geoff Dangerfield says: Too many of our young people are dying or being badly injured in crashes. Raising the minimum driv- ing age to 16, bringing in a zero alcohol limit for drivers under 20 and making the restricted licence test more difficult will all help to improve the poor safety record of young drivers. Mr Dangerfield says young drivers are most at risk when they first drive without super- vision and research shows crash rates are lower for young drivers who have completed around 120 hours of supervised driving practice.
