The unit was parked at Westfield Glenfield in front of the leisure cen- tre. It has been providing free breast screening for local women. The vandalism hap- pened last Wednesday evening. Images of the women on the side of the unit were defaced and graffitied. Police are invest- igating. Programme manager Moira McLeod says it is very disappointing for such disrespect to be shown to women who have gifted the use of their image to raise awareness of breast can- cer . So many health and community groups have worked together in col- laboration to bring this vital service to Glenfield, she says. The unit was launched in December 2009 and is New Zealand s first digi- tal mobile breast screening unit. It is the first time it has been bought to the North Shore. Previously women were screened at the Takapuna Breast- Screen Aotearoa clinic. The unit will be at Beach Haven until Friday. Call 0800-270-270 or 484-0200 to book a free appointment. Students help bomb victims Giving Hope: Rangitoto College students Charlotte Paterson-Hawes, left, Ashley Kim and Olivia Coleman with Mary Wareham. Photo: SARAH CODDINGTON By SARAH CODDINGTON A group of Rangitoto Col- lege students raised $4000 in a bid to help people who have lost limbs from exploding cluster bombs. Co-ordinator of Aotea- roa New Zealand cluster emission coalition Mary Wareham came to collect the funds. The money will pro- vide 60 prosthetic legs to people in Laos. Ms Wareham will be taking the funds to Cope, an organisation that provides prosthetic limbs. Laos and Cambodia are still affected by clus- ter bombs left over from the Vietnam war. Ms Wareham is ecstatic to be receiving the money, especially because it has come from youth. She says a lot of youth lose limbs from cluster bombs still exploding. A 22-year-old man who lost a limb said: Why did the Americans do this to me? I wasn t even born when the bomb was set. I couldn t answer him. But it s not about blaming the United States, it s about doing something about it, Ms Wareham says. It was the most amount of money raised from a school mufti day. Year 11 student Char- lotte Paterson-Hawes, who helped organise the collection encouraged other students to do the same. We can make a differ- ence to other people s lives and it didn t cost us anything, she says. The New Zealand gov- ernment recently signed a cluster emissions act treaty. It is now illegal for New Zealanders to set off any cluster bombs in the country or while over- seas. Ms Wareham is attending the first meet- ing with over 100 countries that signed the treaty in Laos. Land purchase celebrations By SARAH CODDINGTON The Long Bay-Okura Great Park Society is celebrating a council purchase that means a substantial area of land will now become part of the regional park. A North Shore City Council purchase in- cludes 18.7 hectares of heritage protection area on the Awaruku head- land at the southern end of Long Bay beach. To mark the occasion the society will be hold- ing a public open day on Sunday, November 14, from 11am to 2pm. It will be at the Sir Peter Blake Marine Edu- cation Recreation Centre at Long Bay. There will be live music and a silent art auction.
