The annual Grocery Charity Ball took place at the Langham Hotel in September and the Melanoma Foundation of New Zealand was chosen as its bene- ficiary charity. Melanoma Foundation execu- tive officer Heather Hyland is delighted at the amount of money raised. New Zealand has the highest melanoma rate in the world. The funds raised enable us to do more to educate Kiwis about melanoma. We can now establish a national support and infor- mation centre in Auckland for people affected by melanoma, she says. Every year around 300 New Zealanders die from melanoma and about 2000 people are diag- nosed with melanoma. These are unacceptable statistics for a can- cer that is largely preventable through being sun-safe and early awareness of skin changes. If melanoma is not caught early, it quickly spreads and the chances of people surviving decreases, Ms Hyland says. The ball is organised by the Grocery Charity Ball Trust with support from Foodstuffs, Pro- gressive Enterprises and the New Zealand Food and Grocery Council. Thieves will even take numbers off letterbox It might pay to check that brass fittings on your letterbox are securely attached after a spate of thefts in the Epsom area. During September the number of brass and cop- per thefts reached more than a dozen, with a large number of reports from houses in Owens Rd and King George Ave. Epsom community constable Gordon Camp- bell says copper sells at $8 a kilogram and brass at $5 a kilogram, and the thefts concern letterbox numbers and brass envelope surrounds. It was an epidemic at the time. People were just walking down the street and nicking the numbers off the letter- boxes. Epsom is also an affluent area so people can afford nice brass numbers. But he is pleased the thefts have tailed off in recent weeks. Contact Mr Campbell on 630-2291 if you ve had similar problems. Fireworks ban at parks Major parks and beaches will be off limits for those who want to let off fire- works in public this Guy Fawkes.
