New charity

for vision loss

community

• By Bea Gooding

AFTER BEING diagnosed with

eye conditions causing gradual

vision loss, Chrissie Whitfield

struggled to find a place for

emotional support.

Her experiences following

diagnosis inspired her to found

#Blindsided NZ, a charity to

connect people affected by vision

loss together to share stories, exchange

information and provide

referrals to other agencies.

Ms Wakefield is now raising

funds to set up the initiative as

a charitable trust in order to

provide a free service to those

accessing the support.

“When I was diagnosed, it

was difficult to know where to

go. I ended up searching for

groups around NZ but there

weren’t any,” she said.

Diagnosed initially with mild

macular degeneration - where

the central portion of the retina

wears down - she did not respond

to treatment.

She went to another specialist

and was later diagnosed with

central serous chorioretinopathy;

a build-up of fluid causing

further vision loss.

She said her eye conditions

were caused by consistent use of

steroids which helped manage

her asthma.

“I was terrified. I’ve never

gotten the eyesight back that

I lost, but there have been

improvements after months of

lasers and injections,” she said.

“My mother was diagnosed

in the late 70s with macular

degeneration and her vision is

poor. She’s been providing me

with lots of support, she’s my

role model.”

Ms Whitfield currently ran

a support group online under

the same name and had met

members from around the

country going through a similar

journey.

It was a place to ask

questions and offered hope and

friendship as well as a place to

find important resources about

various eye conditions.

Housing agency finds ways

to better support community

KĀINGA ORA supported more

than 42,000 people through

wellbeing calls during Covid-19,

prompting the Government

agency to change the way it

works with them.

With workers unable to be

in the community, they fielded

thousands of calls to check up on

those in public housing.

Because of this, they are

working to understand the root

causes impacting people’s ability

to live well in their homes, moving

approach to one focused on being

kind and compassionate

For Shirley, hearing a familiar

voice during lockdown was

enough to help her get through.

“I do spend time alone when I’m

home because, sadly, I don’t see

much of my family,” she said.

“Hearing a friendly voice on

the phone, simply asking ‘How

are you?’, was lovely.”

She was contacted by her

tenancy manager, Renee, when

Covid-19 meant the Kāinga Ora

team could not spend the time

in their communities as they

ordinarily would.

Other benefits to keeping in

touch more often meant Shirley

let Renee know about a fall that

had affected her mobility.

The agency was able to put

things in motion as lockdown

restrictions ease, arranging for

an occupational therapist to visit

her home to advise on modifications

to make it easier for her to

get around.

Kāinga Ora supports more

than 200,000 people in more than

65,000 homes across the country.

Many have wide-ranging needs,

from financial assistance to mental

health support.

Vision loss charity

aims to fill a gap

• From page 1

“Some people don’t understand

the impact of losing that vision is

on your life, and not being able to

do the things you love anymore,”

she said.

“I’m a strong person, but I

balled my eyes out. I had all these

plans - what did this mean now?”

Her vision for #Blindsided

NZ as a charity was to provide

that same level of support, but

having a charitable status meant

they could apply for funding and

grants.

Having the extra funding

meant that they could also

provide low vision assessments,

coaching and referrals to established

agencies in conjunction

with the emotional support.

Said Ms Whitfield: “Moving

forward, various clinics, DHBs

and agencies across the country

will work with #Blindsided NZ as

a trusted partner to ensure that

clients have end-to-end support

throughout their journey.

“We aim to fill a gap in the vision

loss client pathway from prediagnosis

to supported living and

beyond; we don’t want anyone

falling through the cracks.”

The revolution

in heat pumps

is here now!

Chrissie Whitfield

She encouraged people to donate

to the cause because “every

single one of us knows someone

with vision loss.”

“If people don’t have emotional

support, they can’t move forward

and are caught in a life of negativity

and fear.”

Te Kura Huruhuru Ao o Horomaka. Warm greetings to the

Hornby High School community.

What an extraordinary time we have come through, and

it’s not over yet. As we adjust to living and working in this

post-Covid world, we are doing a lot of thinking about what

we want education to look like, to feel like, to sound like, as

we take the lessons from our time “learning from home”.

Our own Hornby High School experiences were arguably

different from most other secondary schools, because our

work as a part of The Manaiakalani Programme had set us

up superbly to foster remote learning. Presenting learning

material and activities on a website, having students

write remotely and electronically via blogs, was already

a normal part of what we do, of how we support learning.

With learning material highly visible and accessible,

rewindable learning is the norm: that is, the ability for

students to look again at things they don’t understand,

is ever present. All of this was only possible with the

provision of Chromebooks. As I so often say, thank you

to all whānau who have made the sacrifices necessary to

invest in devices for their children. You made this possible.

This meant that for those students and whānau who chose

to engage there was little real interruption to their learning.

The piece of the puzzle that was missing was the capacity

to meet and see each other in person, the relational

work in which we take such great pride at Te Huruhuru

Ao o Horomaka Hornby High School, and both staff and

students were very happy to be back together, to see each

other, to have a laugh with each other.

However, the recognition of the many other ways in which

learning takes place has also been important: baking

a cake, planting a garden, rediscovering traditional

knowledge like the uses of plants while spending time with

whānau, these are all important ways in which learning

happens. I wonder if those opportunities have allowed so

many of our tamariki to find themselves more culturally

located in their whānau and their learning? That is perhaps

the most important thing of all.

I hope we don’t lose that, now that we are back. I have

seen the question posed: “As we return to the old normal,

perhaps we need to ask ourselves which parts of the old

normal are worth returning to?” As a kura we are doing

some long hard thinking about that.

It is timely to remind everyone that we are now taking

enrolments for 2021. Out of Zone enrolments are now

open, and close on 31 July, with only 15 places available,

all between Years 7 and 10. This includes places in our

dedicated bilingual unit. Please make sure you get your

enrolment forms from Andrea at reception, and get these

back to us as soon as possible. Whānau have missed

out on places because they assumed that they could

automatically enrol with us. It’s worth checking with

Andrea, or on our website.

Hornby High School has entered into a national

competition to design and make an electric vehicle.

Josh, Connor and Logan make up team “Lead Foot”.

Josh has had past success when he won the

national championship for the economy run (most

economical vehicle).

The team would not be able to exist if it was not

for the mega support of Mr Rod Stuart who is

the brains and motivation behind its success. So

far this year, even through lockdown, they have

continued to design and mock up a rolling chassis.

Team Lead Foot has been working on the project

after school and on the weekends. Additional

support is provided by EVolocity and many of its

support organisations such as ARA.

In November Team Lead Foot will compete against

other high schools from across Canterbury, and if

successful will move onto the national competition.

DAY OUT: Boating on the Avon River in March 1904.

The Antigua bridge under construction, circa 1902.

PHOTOS: NEWSLINE

Fendalton photographer’s historic collection now online

IMAGES OF the early 1900s

taken from a collection of

fragile photographic glass

plates are now in focus on the

Christchurch City Libraries’

digital heritage site, Canterbury

Stories.

More than 700 images of the

city from the 1000-strong collection

are online, with the rest

appearing on the site over the

next few weeks. It is the first time

that the images are accessible to

the public.

Early Antigua Boat Sheds

owner Samuel Anstey – believed

to be responsible for the glassplate

negatives – bought the

building on the banks of the

Avon River in the late 1800s,

advertising that he had “70

well-built boats to choose

from” and a “photographic

dark room for the use of

visitors.”

Fendalton-based Anstey,

an English surveyor who arrived

New Zealand in 1882,

soon built up a remarkable

photographic record. Many

of those glass plate negatives

remained in the space under

the roof of the boat sheds until

the early 1970s, when Canterbury

Carolyn

Robertson

Public Library librarian RC Lamb

collected the images from the then

owner of the site, WS Dini.

City council head of

libraries and information

Carolyn Robertson says

the Anstey Collection

offers a “snapshot of early

Christchurch life, capturing

people, places and

riverside poses.”

“Staff are busy digitising

these fragile images,

providing a remarkable

portal to Canterbury’s

past,” Ms Robertson said.

“The striking black and white

photos illustrate the early 1900s

in the city, including visiting

theatrical companies, families,

and even the Botanic Gardens,

bridges, river rowers and horse

riding in Hagley Park,” she said.

“They also show the fashions

of the day and early buildings

now long gone, along with home

and work interiors.

“The images reveal so much

about our relationship with the

city, and, despite the huge changes,

how our love of the outdoors

– particularly cycling and being

on the water – has remained.

“It is fascinating to see so many

interactions with the landscape

as the collection encapsulates the

early social history of Ōtautahi

Christchurch.”

The collection also covers

other regions, with viewers able

to enjoy a photographic journey

to Nelson, Taupō, Auckland and

Napier in 1905.

To see more, visit the Christchurch

City Libraries digital heritage

site – Canterbury Stories.

Launched in December last

year, the site provides access to

more than 10,000 items, including

the recently uploaded Anstey

IT COULD be a while until

the eastern suburbs start to

see Lianne Dalziel’s campaign

aspirations for the area come to

fruition.

During October’s local body

elections, Ms Dalziel identified

repairs to the eastern part of the

city’s footpaths, pipes and roads

as one of her main priorities for

this term.

“We need a fully integrated

programme of works for the

east, I have loosely called this

the eastern alliance, which

would essentially be an alliance

of contractors who can take

the whole area bit by bit and

systematically get the work

done,” she said during the

campaign.

But chief executive Dawn

Baxendale said any request to

pursue a specific project in the

east would have to be agreed

upon by council.

City councillors are yet to pass

on any guidance to staff around

this, she said.

St Albans resident Mark Wilson

said the community are “somewhat

“The community will be somewhat

thankful for a reprieve of the

months, but it’s still there. Until

decisions are made to put our

community first, then there is no

relief,” he said.

CALLS HAVE been made to

stop rates increases in response

to the Covid-19 crisis.

City councillors James Gough,

Sam MacDonald, Catherine

Chu, Phil Mauger, Aaron Keown

and James Daniels have sent a

letter to Mayor Lianne Dalziel

asking her to lead a conversation

as to how a zero per cent rates

increase could be achieved this

year.

The city council is proposing

an average rates increase of 4.65

per cent across all ratepayers in

this year’s Draft Annual Plan

which is currently under public

consultation until April 5 and

will be finalised before July 1.

The 2018-2028 Long Term

Plan also predicts a 50 per cent

rates increase over 10 years.

Said Cr MacDonald: “In

the current environment it’s

clear business as usual is not

appropriate and the council

needs to look at how we enable

this 12-month rates increase

freeze to occur, it’s crucial for

the economic confidence of our

city.”

Ms Dalziel said the las thing

the city council needed was for

someone to hi the panic button.

“Calm heads must and will

prevail,” she said.

“Our residents and businesses

will be depending on us to

make adjustments, and we will,

however, we will need advice

on the impacts on all aspects of

Vaping rules

in CDHB

spotlight

the council’s budget, which is

not entirely funded by rates, and

the consequences that will flow

from decisions we make.

“The Annual Plan is not

signed off for three months so

we have time to ge this advice.

A the same time, the council

is meeting with our economic

development agency, ChristchurchNZ,

the Canterbury Employers’

Chamber of Commerce

and other key players so we are

best prepared for the economic

challenges that lie ahead.”

City council chief executive

Dawn Baxendale did not rule a

zero rates rise out.

“We’re considering a series of

options in light of the extraor-

– page 4

dinary circumstances related to

Covid-19. We will discuss these

options with elected members

as we develop the Annual Plan,”

she said.

The push from city councillors

for a freeze on rates rises comes

shortly after Minister of Finance

Grant Robertson announced

a $12.1 billion package to aid

the economy in response to the

Covid-19 pandemic.

The biggest boost is $5.1

billion towards wage subsidies

for affected businesses in all

sectors and regions.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Cleansed and cured?

Many common health

problems can all be easily

solved with one simple

approach according

to a leading New

Zealand Medical

Herbalist Brett

Elliott. Brett found in

his clinical practice

that most of his clients

have similar common

health complaints and

that it all could be traced

back to digestive disorders. Did you know

up to 50% of the population suffer from

common health conditions like; chronic

constipation, acid reflux, bloating, gas,

ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, crohn’s

disease, coeliac disease, haemorrhoids,

gallstones, cancer, diabetes, high blood

pressure, abdominal weight gain, skin

complaints and many more, these can all

come back to a poor digestive system.

Brett wanted to find a simple solution

everyone could use to support their

bodies natural healing without the side

effects of pharmaceutical medications that

often only ease or cover the symptoms

without healing as well as often having

many side effects. Brett knew everything

in the body depends on the digestive

system working properly and so went

about developing “The Ultimate Herbal

Detox Body Cleanse Program” a simple

to use two week program. It not only

supports the whole digestive system but

also helps cleanse the entire body of toxins

and parasites. The program contains four

different all herb formulas all in capsule

form that need to be taken twice daily.

These capsules can be blended into a

smoothie if you prefer. Colon-aid

is designed to support a healthy

bowel movement, increases the

secretion of gastric juices and

bile and promote appetite and

digestion. Digez-aid soothes

and stimulates healthy digestion

and absorption of vital nutrients.

Sym-lax is a bulking fibre to

cleanse and heal the intestines and

bowels. It also makes you feel less

hungry. Liva-food is the final nutrient

rich formula to support a healthy liver

function. It supports detoxing the body of

toxins and heavy metals.

The program supports the bodies’

organs to do their job. The formulas are

New Zealand made and contain a total

of 24 high potency herbs making it quite

possibly the most comprehensive “do

it yourself ” herbal detox body cleanse

program in the world. Brett has refined

the formula over 20 years and has now

sold over 100, 000 kits world-wide. He

regularly receives incredible feedback

from users with many re-doing the

program once or twice yearly.

With toxic overload and many diseases

sky-rockerting now is the time to make a

positive change by cleansing, nourishing

and helping build your body to a better

health.

toastmasters club

A PAPANUI-based

toastmaster’s club has

won two awards for public

speaking and having a

positive impact on the

community.

Christchurch Women’s

Club Toastmasters has won

the Jack Duffy memorial

rose bowl for exceptional

contribution to the

community.

It is the second

consecutive year the club

has won this accolade,

which was awarded at the

Toastmasters International

District 72 conference.

Said Toastmasters

International district

director Diane Isherwood:

“It is fantastic to see

that the members of

Christchurch Women’s

Toastmasters have taken

the skills that they have

learned and done so much

for the community.”

Toastmasters, through its

educational programme,

gives members the

opportunity and support

to improve confidence and

develop communication

and leadership skills.

The president of the

Christchurch women’s

club Sheila Hailstone

said the women have

led fundraising groups,

developed podcasts

during Covid-19, written

and published two books

with funds raised to go

to Women’s Refuge and

breast cancer research

and have given keynote

speeches.

“The members truly

express the core value

of this club, supporting

women to succeed,” she

said.

Club member Laura

Bruce won the District 72

humorous speech contest,

held online for the first

time.

Her speech, Smart,

helpful, and a great

communicator – she’s the

ultimate assistant, was

a satirical take on the

benefits of virtual assistant

‘Alexa’ in the context of a

smart home.

“I was delighted to win

the humourous speech

contest,” said Laura, who

began her journey to the

district championship by

winning her club’s contest

back in September.

“The strangest part was

competing against my

friend, Albertus Viljoen,

who had won the division

contest in Wellington. Fortunately,

he came second,

so it turned out okay.

“Toastmasters has

opened up so many doors

for me. It gave me the

confidence to try stand-up

comedy, which I never

could have imagined

before toastmasters.”

She now regularly

performs stand-up comedy

in Christchurch, and was

the South Island runner-up

in the 2020 Raw Comedy

Quest.

All women are welcome

to attend Christchurch

Women’s Club

Toastmasters meetings.

The 60min meetings

feature members giving

prepared speeches as well

as an impromptu speaking

component.

skills to interact with all parties including, families,

lawyers, social workers and the Court.

Would you like an opportunity to

help people in your community?

Care Solutions is currently setting up a new Supervised

Contact service in the Christchurch area and we are

looking for six contact supervisors. We are a community

based, child focused agency. Visits are for two hours and

venues may vary. This is an opportunity to be part of an

exciting new team.

We are looking for a diverse group of supervisors both

male and female. The role provides for a non-day to

day (visiting) parent to have supervised visits with

their children, ensuring that children are safe, while

supporting and providing an opportunity to rebuild the

parent/child relationship.

The role includes supervising the contact (usually

two hours), keeping the child/children safe, following

any safety plan that may be in place, and writing an

observational report after the contact. Three hours is

paid to allow time for separate handovers between

the parents, the contact itself, and writing the report.

Mileage is paid from home to the contact. Note that

most contacts take place during the weekend or after

school hours.

Training and ongoing support will be

given. A Police vetting will be required

and you will need a full drivers licence.
