NO1 FRANCHISE 2011 Personal campaign to help kidney kids FROM Page 1 the chance to do things like bungy jumping and go- karting. It's about giving them experiences other kids their age get to have but they don't feel they can do, or their parents are too frightened to let them do,'' Mrs Simons says. The camps also give the children the opportunity to be together. That's what these kids really need. They go through a lot of challenges, especially in the teenage years when they can become non-compliant with their medication, which can mean they miss out on transplants. They just want to be normal.'' Mrs Simons says the biggest challenge for the organisation has always been funding which is why it is so reliant on New Zealanders giving to fundraising efforts like Project Kidney. The project is a joint initiat- ive between The Mad Butcher and Suburban Newspapers Community Trust, the Wai- heke Marketplace and Kidney Kids to pay for four haemodia- lysis machines to be installed in a new paediatric haemodia- lysis unit at Starship. Mrs Simons says her role with Kidney Kids has been hugely rewarding. When a lot of these kids were born their parents were told they wouldn't live. To see them grow from babies to young adults is fantastic.'' Go to kidneykids.org.nz for more information. Volunteers reach out to island elderly Offering companionship: Age Concern Waiheke co-ordinator Caroline Jarvie, volunteer visitor Amanda Jonker, Auckland co-ordinator Jenny Barker and volunteer visitor Sally Kingsford. The elderly are being given a boost now that weekly visits by an Age Concern volunteer are being offered on Waiheke Island. Volunteers from the accredited visiting service spend about an hour with individuals and welcome the opportunity to make a differ- ence in a person's life. They might pop in for a chat and a cuppa, go for a drive or a take a walk on the beach. Waiheke Island volunteers, Sally Kingsford and Amanda Jonker are looking forward to making friends with the folk who have been referred to the service by family, healthcare professionals, homecare providers or even themselves. And Age Concern co- ordinator for Waiheke Island Caroline Jarvie is keen to sup- port community organisations with the service. She sees an opportunity to provide a net- work of support for people who have become isolated from social contact and community events on the island. Waiheke has such a strong sense of caring and I really encourage people to involve themselves with the fantastic wealth of knowledge, humour and life stories our older folk have to offer.'' Ms Jarvie has experience in offering support to others and sees this new island service as a way of giving back to the Waiheke community. She wants to encourage people to take the opportunity to reconnect with others and share their life stories and experiences. I recommend opening your heart and your home to a vol- unteer. To have someone pop in regularly for a chat can make all the difference on a bleak winter's day.'' Age Concern has been offer- ing the service for over 22 years to people over 65 who appreciate some extra com- pany on a regular basis. Phone Age Concern co- ordinators Jenny Barker 820 2714 or leave a message for Caroline Jarvie on 021 221 1564 for more information about volunteering or requesting a visitor.
