The 21-year-old man became disoriented while camping in the park, he managed to call emergency services and Wellington Free Ambulance Rescue sent two four-wheel-drive ambulances and a road ambulance. The man was found after a short time and taken to his home after being assessed. Wellington Free Ambulance Rescue advises people camping alone to advise family or friends of their whereabouts prior to departure. This makes any rescue much easier. Team leader Aaron Hartle said it was fortunate in this case no one was injured. It served as a timely reminder to carry cellphones and GPS devices. Personal Locater Beacons (PLB) are also recommended. Skylight open day The Skylight trust, which supports children, young people, families and adults through tough times -- whatever the cause -- is having an open day at its Wellington centre on March 7. Come and see what Skylight does and the support they offer. The open day is on from 12.30pm to 4.30pm, 2A Green St, Newtown Wellington, on the second floor of the National Bank Building. Wellingtonians dig deep Good cause: Bronwyn Kropp, far right, with the young Rotary leaders and Mana MP Kris Faafoi as they collected money on February 9. Young leaders from across Wel- lington hit the streets recently to raise more than $3000 for emerg- ency kits for the South Pacific. Over 50 members of Rotary Youth Leadership Awards pro- gramme, including Porirua City councillor Bronwyn Kropp, were challenged to raise as much as they could in two hours. Stepping out of our comfort zones to approach strangers was very daunting for most of us but when you truly believe in the good of the cause you can find the cour- age, Ms Kropp said. Fellow participant Rachel Townsend said seeing the gener- osity of Wellingtonians touched her heart. For me it reinforced that as Kiwis we are very giving and genuinely do care when it comes to helping our neighbours in the Pacific, no one likes to watch people suffer as they are. Each emergency response kit creates the means to create shel- ter, hunt and prepare food and basic clothing and medical supplies. It is important to know that while each kit costs $600 even the smallest donation contributes to something vital like a blanket or a machete which can save not just one life but a whole family, Ms Kropp said. Creative methods were employed to raise cash, including approaching MPs. Mana MP Kris Faafoi showed his support on the Beehive steps.

Titahi school gives it a tri Kapi-Mana News jumped the gun last week -- the Titahi Bay School Triathlon is on this Saturday, not last weekend as reported. More than 190 children, aged 5 to 10, will take on the course, accompanied by the best wishes of their parents and members of the community. The fundraiser has been a staple on the school s calendar since 2009. Last year, more than $13,000 was raised, and the school benefited to the tune of brand new staging for its hall. We love living in this com- munity, said teacher and parent Miranda McMahon. Every year we are pleasantly surprised by the con- tinued support we get. There will be lots of food and raffles. The triathlon starts at 8.45am, from Toms Rd to Titahi Bay Beach -- in front of the surf club.
