Cookbook mixes recipes for charity Marathon effort: Victoria Fleming, 24, has created a cookbook to raise funds for the British and New Zealand Heart Foundations who she supports with her marathon running. Photo: BEN WATSON By LISA HONEYBONE Gaining a place in the 2011 London marathon sent Victoria Fleming, 24, on a whole new adventure. The Northcote Point resident was picked from a ballot to run for her chosen charity the Brit- ish Heart Foundation and she has pledged them £1500. In order to raise the funds she has put together a recipe book with a difference. Tried And True From Us To You features recipes from different chefs, restaurants, cafes and celebrities. Victoria says she didn t want to just ask people for money. I wanted people to get something for their money, she says. After throwing around ideas she came up with the recipe book. But she didn t want a stock standard one. I wanted recipes that people will use, she says. She received around 50 recipes from names like Peter Gordon, Jo Seagar, Julie Biuso, Sean Fitzpatrick, Rachel Hunter and John Key. Working at the New Zealand Institute of Health and Fitness and being a marathon run- ner, Victoria has a healthy approach to eat- ing. Once she has reached her pledge amount for the British Heart Foun- dation, the remainder will be allocated to the New Zealand Heart Foundation who she ran the Auckland marathon for in October. Tried And True From Us To You costs $20 and can be bought by email- ing Victoria at victoria firstname.lastname@example.org. Santa's coming to town By JODEAL CADACIO Christmas is coming early to Torbay and Mai- rangi Bay where a series fun activities for the family kicks off this month. A Fun Day in Torbay is on November 20 at the carpark at the rear of the shops, from 2pm to 4pm. It starts with a kapa haka performed by Northcross Intermediate School students. Co-ordinator Carole McMinn says many com- munity groups will be taking part in the event to highlight the many facets of Torbay. The celebration shifts to Mairangi Bay on November 27 for the annual Santa parade and festival, from noon. Santa will be in his grotto giving free gifts to children under seven years old. There will also be a festival featuring many local community groups and a farmers market earlier in the day for those looking for good quality produce. Santa will be at the Torbay shops on Decem- ber 4, from 10am to noon. He will be giving out gifts to children and there will be a sausage sizzle, face painting, bouncy castle and free carseat checks. It will be great for the family and it s all free, Ms McMinn says.
