Get online savvy -- A Guide for Seniors highlights the types of scams targeting people aged over 50 and gives tips on how to surf the internet safely. It has been created by the cross- agency Consumer Fraud Working Group including the Ministry of Busi- ness Innovation and Employment. Ministry spokesman Jarrod Rendle says seniors are more vulnerable because they might have more money to invest, be seeking online business opportunities, travel more frequently than other age groups and be more likely to have their personal details on databases. He says some online scams are very sophisticated and easily fool people. Some people have lost hundreds of dollars or had their holidays ruined. Others have lost their entire life sav- ings,'' he says. Scams can also be reported to the ministry run website Scamwatch. govt.nz. Visit consumeraffairs. govt.nz/scams/faw2013 to view the guide. Infant CPR in focus at Piritahi Marae Join them: Jassy Dean Trust trustee Anna Lowe is encouraging parents to attend a workshop that will teach them how life-saving CPR can be used on small children and babies like six-month-old Ruby, pictured. Photo: DIANA WORTHY A technique that can save young- sters' lives is being taught in two short courses on the same day next month. The courses are being run by the Jassy Dean Trust to teach parents and caregivers how to perform CPR on infants and chil- dren. Both will be taught by facilitator Charli Crocker at the Piritahi Marae in Blackpool on August 8. The first session is for mothers and staff who are part of Te Pa Harakeke Young Mums Group. But the second course that day is open to parents and caregivers who have children aged under 5, with entry by koha. Spaces are limited to 20 people and spots are already filling up fast. Course organiser and Jassy Dean Trust trustee Anna Lowe says places will be held on a first come, first served basis. On-site childcare will be pro- vided for who that need it. Te Pa Harakeke co-ordinator Timmy Smith says: This is a enormous gift Jassy Dean is giv- ing to our community and especially our group. Charli is an incredible facilitator and I know we will all gain so much from this experience and learning.'' The Jassy Dean Trust will be making the CPR workshops a reg- ular event on the island due to an already high level of interest. Ms Lowe is encouraging parents unable to attend the courses on that date to contact her and have their name added to the waiting list for the next event. The health and wellbeing of Waiheke children is vitally important to us as a group and equipping parents with the ability to perform CPR is one way we can act as the fence at the top of the cliff rather than the ambulance at the bottom,'' she says. As a new mum myself, I am very aware of how nerve-racking being a first time parent can be. Knowing CPR is one way to make sure parents with babies and young children are confident and have the skills to act quickly in an emergency.'' When: Public course on Thursday August 8, from 12.30 to 2.30pm Where: Kohanga building, Piritahi Marae, Blackpool Who: Open to parents and caregivers of under-5s How: Email Anna Lowe on firstname.lastname@example.org to book or phone 021 399 109 or (09) 372 8173 Entry: By koha. Safari tour showcases gardens The Jassy Dean Trust has chosen 13 gardens for its annual Waiheke Island Garden Safari on November 9 and 10 and is looking for volunteers to help out. Co-ordinator Michelle Barber says there are a range of different gardens featured this year, including Oakura Bay house at the end of Rothschild Terrace on the Te Whau peninsula. ''We will also have a new garden expo at Rangihoua Estate. ''It will feature the huge plant sale we usually have, but will also showcase garden products and services, and talks by gardening experts.'' The pre-safari Waiheke Bayleys Art in the Garden auction event will also return, on November 8. ''It will showcase Waiheke artists' work, beautiful food, Waiheke wines, a light supper and entertainment,'' Ms Barber says. All proceeds benefit the Jassy Dean Trust, helping sick Waiheke children and their families. Contact gardensafari email@example.com to register your interest in becoming a volunteer.
