the winter


Many Kiwis struggle to keep active

and healthy when winter temperatures

plummet, but a leading New Zealand

exercise expert says gym membership

numbers actually go up in winter.

Chief executive of Exercise NZ, Richard

Beddie, says winter is no excuse to stop

training or ease on fitness levels.

“Gyms and other exercise facilities

actually increase in numbers in winter,

even though exercise needs to be a part

of a constant lifestyle, no matter what

time of year it is.

“During winter, it can be even more

important to maintain an active lifestyle.

Not only does working out burn fat, build

muscle strength, increase metabolism

and keep our hearts healthy, it also

helps us to fight off many diseases and


“The start of the cold season and the

resultant change in routine, can be a

great opportunity to start a new habit –

maybe hot yoga for winter 2017?

“There are many studies which have

been done indicating that exercise helps

us to increase our immune systems,

which is so important during the winter


“We know it takes a bit longer to warm

up, but for those who can train in

the outdoors, can get through winter

without hibernating like a bear.”

When it’s warm inside, and cold out, it’s

often tempting to be less active, Richard

says, but those that do exercise will tell

you how it helps beat the winter blues as

well as providing all the regular benefits

of exercise.

“Exercising throughout winter means

that people will also be feeling great

once summer arrives. An exercised body

is a healthy body, which translates to a

better immune system and therefore can

reduce winter illnesses.”

Of course, when it is cold and wet and

you are exercising, it’s important to make

sure you aren’t taking any unnecessary


With proper advice from registered

exercise professionals, training outdoors

is safe throughout the winter months.

When it feels just too frosty, training at

an indoor exercise facility will ensure

Kiwis get all the exercise benefits they

could get from outdoor sessions.

“The key is finding a routine and time

that works for each person. For some,

that’s early mornings, but for others

it’s after work or maybe a 30-minute

exercise snack during the middle of the

day,” Richard suggests.

“In addition to individuals feeling better,

businesses and organisations appreciate

healthy staff, which is most likely to

result in fewer sick days.

“Yet since exercise releases endorphins,

which make us feel good, and lack

of sunlight reduces serotonin, which

balances our moods, spiking training for

sleeping is not always the answer. If the

darker days leave you demotivated and

sluggish, try short, punchy workouts.”

According to a recent study published

in the British Journal of Sports Medicine,

athletic performance peaks in the

evening when people’s core body

temperature is at its highest.

Here is some fitness and health advice

given by Professor Ian Philip to the UK

National Health Services that is worth

considering: head, heart, hip and home.

Cover up your head when outside; think

about your heart by avoiding extreme

changing temperatures; think about your

hips, slips and protecting your bones;

and aim for a warm – but not too warm

– house.

your health

a boost


seasonal fruit

Eating fresh fruit is a natural,

easy way to boost wellness

during winter, says 5+ A Day.

Maintaining a healthy diet

and exercising regularly will

help to ward off sniffles and

sneezes during the coldest


Seasonal fruit, such as

mandarins, oranges and

lemons, taste great as well

as being good sources of

vitamins and minerals to help

the immune system do its job


Here are some quick tips on

how seasonal produce can aid

in boosting immunity, while

adding a burst of colour to

winter meals.


Two mandarins provide you

with 180 per cent of your daily

vitamin C requirements.


A good source of vitamin C,

this tangy fruit has many uses

in the kitchen. From baking

to perking up salads and

marinades, the zesty taste of

lemon quickly brightens up

winter dishes.


Kiwifruit is a nutrient-rich

fruit, thanks to its high-fibre

content, vitamins, antioxidants

and minerals. As well as being

a good source of vitamin C,

green kiwifruit contains an

enzyme that aids digestive

comfort, while gold kiwifruit

helps the body to absorb iron

from food.


Originally from South

America, tamarillos arrived

in New Zealand in the 1890s.

Low in fat and calories, they

are a good source of vitamin

C, which is essential for the

growth and repair of our skin,

teeth and blood vessels.


Juicy, thirst-quenching

oranges are a winter favourite

in many households. They

have many health benefits,

including being a good source

of vitamin C. The juice, zest

and fruit can be used in sweet

and savoury dishes.

ChristChurCh School

of Music

The Christchurch School

of Music is a family-oriented

community aimed at providing

quality music education in

and around Christchurch. The

school has been an important

part of the music education

scene for 62 years so why not

come along and join us?

On a Saturday morning

the whole family can find

something to suit. Preschool

children can start their musical

journey by joining in our “Take

Off with Music” classes while

older children may opt for

group or individual lessons on

a specific instrument (including

voice). Those who already

play are welcome to join in one

of the great ensembles which

all take part in regular concerts.

Recitals where individuals can

perform are also held regularly.

CSM also provides a

comprehensive music

education to participating

primary schools via its

Outreach programme with

tuition offered in band, strings,

recorder, ukulele and classroom


An area that has grown rapidly

over the last few years is the

Late Starters’ programme

where adults approaching

retirement with more time

on their hands really enjoy

learning an instrument and

joining an ensemble with other

like-minded adults.

CSM also offers a range

of weekday opportunities

for music tuition and if

affordability is an issue, CSM

may be able to offer a discount

through funding provided by

the Rata Foundation.

We can take new enrolments

in most instruments and

ensembles throughout the year.

Please contact us via our

website www.csm.org.nz and

let us start you on a musical

journey that will bring pleasure

for a lifetime.

Saving Lives

Would you know what

St John is one of the

leading providers of first

aid training in

Canterbury. Teaching

people first aid skills is

critically important - first

aid can help save a life.

St John began in New

Zealand 132 years ago

and was started by


people who were

eager to promote first

aid skills and training to

the public. Saving lives

and helping others was

very important to them.

They believed everyone

should have some

level of first aid ability,

as accidents and medical

emergencies can

happen anywhere,


St John First Aid courses

provide the necessary

knowledge and

confidence to provide

effective first aid

whenever it’s required.

Courses range from basic

first aid training and

industry specific

modules through to

advanced resuscitation

for hospital employees.

If you would like to know

what to do in an

emergency and would

like to save someone’s

life, a first aid course with

St John’s qualified

instructors will ensure

you have all the skills

you need when the time

Investing in our


We are proud to be the South Island’s largest philanthropic

funder. With an over $600 million endowment, we fund

$20 million in grants each year.

To find out what we do and how we do it, visit our website: ratafoundation.org.nz

community resources 2018




from good

to great

Rātā Foundation is the guardian

of a $600 million endowment or

putea, making around $20 million

in grants per annum, across its

four funding regions — Canterbury,

Nelson, Marlborough and the

Chatham Islands.

Chief Executive, Leighton Evans says “the

Foundation gets the best results by working with

partners who know the most about the areas we

want to support. This also means we are taking

an intergenerational view around investing in

our communities.”

In the past few years Rātā Foundation has invested

$80m plus through partnerships, as well as supporting

a wide range of programmes managed by established

and well-regarded organisations that are experts in their

fields. “We aim to add value to our partnerships through

our funding, connections and knowledge,” says Mr Evans.

Rātā Foundation as a funder is keenly aware of the

need to keep evolving and adapting its thinking around

its funding programme. Mr Evans says he wants the

organisation to be involved

in transformational work,

across all sectors, by

supporting high impact

projects which reach into

communities, alongside its

business as usual funding.

“We want to engage with

communities, energising

them to be part of the

change,” he says and cites

Leighton Evans, Chief Executive

the Foundation’s recent

partnership with Maia Foundation, on its successful

13 Minute campaign as an example of this thinking.

Rātā Foundation partnered with Māia Health Foundation

to launch a crowd-funding campaign which aimed to

raise $500,000 from the community, with Rātā matching

that contribution dollar for dollar.

Christchurch Hospital is New Zealand’s busiest trauma

centre and the only major hospital without a helipad on

site. In addition, the use of helicopters for emergencies

and patient transfers has increased approximately 40%

over the last three years. Christchurch and the South

Island need a helipad

that will cope with

current and future

demand for this service.

Currently, it takes

13 minutes on

average to transfer

by ambulance to

Christchurch Hospital,

after landing in Hagley

Park. A larger helipad and purpose built rooftop clinical

support unit will mean critically unwell patients receive

emergency hospital care immediately on touchdown,

and a quicker transition to full care for routine transfers.

Of their support Mr Evans says the helipad will be a game

changer for the region and the Foundation was proud to

support a health initiative which will demonstrably save

lives. The campaign has raised over $1million.

“The partnership with Maia to match every dollar raised

was an innovative approach which has proved very

successful, with our contribution directly at the level of

community support. No-one is disappointed to see their

money double — especially when that money is going

to a good cause and their impact is amplified.”

“Our aim for the future is to strengthen and build on

the existing culture of collaboration, both within the

organisation and externally. We are keen to learn and

create conversations, with key partners which will

see us leverage our relationships and resources to

strengthen the local impact of our grants.”

wintEr energy payment

Monday to Friday Red Cross

has volunteers driving with

two vital programmes in

Christchurch city. Both Meals

on Wheels and Community

Transport relies on generous

people giving their time to

help many across the suburbs.

Community Transport offers a

lifeline to people who need to

get to medical appointments,

who have no transport of

their own and cannot use

public transport for some

reason. This service has been

operating since 2013 and has

grown from one van to two

vans and two cars.

Meals on Wheels has operated

in Christchurch since the

early 1950’s and currently

Red Cross drivers deliver

approximately 750 hot

meals per day. However the

programme is more than

the delivery of a hot meal,

for many recipients it is the

friendly smile and chat that

means so much, in fact for

many recipients the delivery

person may be the only

person they see that day. The

regular social contact and

nutritionally balanced hot

meals help support vulnerable

people in their homes.

Volunteering is a great way

to boost your wellbeing at

the same time as helping

your community. The level

of commitment for both

programmes is flexible from

one day a month to several

days a week.

Volunteers are at the heart of

Red Cross, they’re committed,

passionate and you could be

just the person we are looking

for! If you have some spare

time please call 03 339 3750

these valuable programmes.

PainfUL feet

Footprints Podiatry are your

footcare experts. Their team

of podiatrists have decades of

experience behind them to

identify your ailment and

recommend the best possible


Do you experience foot or

lower leg pain or any of the

following conditions?

Achilles tendinitis, Heel spurs,

Plantar Fasciitis, Jumpers knee,

Patella tendonopathy and Tibial

Stress Syndrome (shin splints).

Footprints Podiatry can help.

One of their successful

remedies is Shockwave therapy

which was originally used to

break down kidney stones.

Doctors found the results to

accelerate the tissue-healing

response in an area. This lead

to the transition of shockwave

therapy to musculoskeletal

conditions. Shockwave therapy

uses little impulses produced

by air pressure that is directed

toward the affected tissue.

They are audible, low energy

sound waves, which work by

increasing blood flow to the

injured area. This initiates an

inflammation-like response in

the injured tissue, accelerating

the body’s healing process by

increasing cell regeneration.

When applied at the site of

the pain, shockwaves produce

an analgesic effect which

increases blood circulation and

facilitates the repair process.

Benefits of Shockwave therapy:

1. Pain reduction – by changing

the way the nerves signal pain

(interferes with the pain signals

in a positive way).

2. Increased tissue healing –

radial shock wave causes the

elease of chemicals in the cells,

which can reduce inflammation

and pain.

3. Improved blood flow –

repeated shock waves create

new blood flow promoting

tissue healing and regeneration.

4. Reduced muscle tone –

shock waves act on trigger

points. These are the painful

tender spots in muscle, which

often generate pain and


5. Hyperstimulation

of nerve endings

leading to immediate

pain reduction.

Shockwave therapy

is generally well

tolerated and may

be uncomfortable

but not painful, this

sensation will stop as

soon as the treatment

has ended.

Side effects can include:

redness, slight swelling, and

discomfort over the treatment

area. Treatment takes

approximately 15 minutes

and the shockwaves

are mechanical and not

products for sale or hire

When little ones come to stay, it can be

tricky getting hold of everything you

need. Highchairs, portacots, buggies

and carseats are all important pieces

of equipment to ensure a comfortable

stay, but not necessarily things we have

sitting around at home, if we don’t have

young children ourselves. Baby On The

Move have the answer, offering long or

short term hire of exactly these types

of products, and can also help with

professional installation of the carseats,

ensuring that our young visitors are both

comfortable and safe.

Baby On The Move started in

Christchurch more than 20 years

ago. With 16 franchises thoughout

New Zealand, including two here in

Christchurch, they provide a range of

high quality baby equipment for hire and

sale. Whether you need a portacot for a

weekend visit, or a full nursery set-up for

family visiting for a month or more, Baby

On The Move have everything you need.

Carseats for young children are a very

specific safety requirement which

can be confusing and stressful. The

professionally trained Child Restraint

Technicians at Baby On The Move, will

talk you through what you will need for

babies and children of different ages,

check that you have the correct fittings

in your vehicle, and then fit the carseats

for you when you pick them up. This

gives peace of mind so you can safely

transport your young visitors, knowing

that your carseats have been installed by

the experts.

As well as offering short or long term

hire options, Baby On The Move are

also retailers, stocking a wide range of

quality carseats, nursery equipment,

toys, and everything you need for babies

and young children. If you are caring for

littlies on a regular basis, it may make

sense to purchase certain items, and once

again, Baby On The Move can provide

sensible advice in choosing quality

products. With carseats purchased or

hired from Baby On The Move, they offer

free installation for the life of seat, which

means that any time you need assistance

you can pop in, and they will adjust or

reinstall the seat free of charge. If you

have a carseat purchased elsewhere,

they also offer a professional installation

service for which a fee applies.
