Initial assistance request declined

hospital in Invercargill was declined by
After a second conversation, during
which they threatened to go to the media,
the company agreed to provide accommo-

Mr Davies this week confirmed he was
concerned about the company's initial
handling of the situation.
The woman and her partner were foot
passengers on a sightseeing trip and say

Roast with the trimmings
Booth bash: Thirty-six Wakatipu youth tucked into roast chicken followed by pavlova, fresh fruit and cream to celebrate Christmas at the
Youth Booth on Friday night. Among those to roll their sleeves up with Wakatipu Youth Trust youth workers was trustee and ASB branch

meal free of charge and was grateful for food vouchers donated by New World. The idea was to ensure that any youth in the community
who may not get to enjoy a traditional Christmas dinner did get that opportunity, she said.
