OPERATION The Mad Butcher and Suburban Newspapers Community Trust BURNS leave their victims physically and emotionally scarred -- often for life. Fortunately medical advances have reached the point where steps can be taken to minimise the long term impact on people. That s why the Mad Butcher and Suburban Newspapers Community Trust is so keen to support the National Burn Centre. Any one of us could require the unit s services at some point, chairman Sir Peter Leitch says. Some of the cases referred there now are absolutely heartbreaking and it s hum- bling to see how the staff and their patients cope in such extraordinary circumstances. All of them are battlers and some are up against huge odds. We, through this cam- paign, can help by funding some much needed equip- ment to assist surgeons with their reconstructive and plas- tic surgery. I challenge the people of Auckland to join us in our efforts. It s very easy to bury your head in the sand and say it doesn t affect me. But the simple truth is it one day could -- no one knows what lies ahead. The Mad Butcher and Sub- urban Newspapers Com- munity Trust was formed in 1998 and has so far raised more than $1.5 million for various causes. Beneficiaries have included Plunket, the North Shore Hospital Foundation, Cure Kids, Hospice, Diabetes NZ, the Cancer Foundation, the Starship children s hospital, Look Good Feel Better, the Meningitis Trust, Kidz First Children s Hospital, CanTeen and Macular Degeneration. The trust has also helped numerous schools with liter- acy and drug education initiatives. Its work with prostate can- cer awareness and the Parkinson s Society is well documented as is its involve- ment with the newly launched League 4 Life Foun- dation. The big difference is that every cent goes to the causes, deputy chairman and Suburban Newspapers general manager David Penny says. There are no adminis- tration staff and trustees all volunteer. They even have to pay for their own tickets to the functions. Western Leader editor Claire Haynes says: We are very much a part of the trust and this is a fantastic oppor- tunity to lend our support to something of benefit to our community. Donations to Operation Heal can be sent to Western Leader, PO Box 21167, Henderson or posted direct to: Operation Heal, Mad Butcher and Suburban Newspapers Community Trust, Private Bag 92815, Penrose, Auckland 1642. Charity dinner It is being billed as the premier event of the year -- and with good reason. The Mad Butcher and Suburban Newspapers Community Trust will hold a corporate charity dinner at the Telstra- Clear Pacific Events Centre on December 3. Guest speaker Prime Minister John Key will be interviewed on stage by Paul Holmes during a night of glitz and glamour to raise funds for the National Burn Centre. Television personality and Newstalk ZB host Kerre Woodham will be MC with humour from comedian Ewen Gilmour. The evening starts at 7.30pm and will include live and silent auctions as well as music from the band Black Salt. Diners will enjoy a superb meal with complimentary beer from Lion Breweries and fine wine from Glengarry. Tickets cost $1850 plus GST for a table of 10 or $185 plus GST per person.
