Paying it forward


Waihopai Association Football Club junior member Amelia Watson (11) and Ronald McDonald Family Room supervisor Helen Walker hold toiletry items collected by club members on Saturday.

The club decided to collect items to support the charity room, used by families in Southland, as part of its junior club day. South End United Football Club women’s team, which played the Waihopai women’s team on Saturday, had seen the post on the opposition club’s Facebook page and decided to contribute as well.

Mrs Walker said the three boxes of goods which were collected would be used in the family room and also for families using the children’s ward at Southland Hospital.
