Mother’s desperate bid for family

holiday – but time is running out

• By Bea Gooding

DANNI RASMUSSEN fears

time with her terminally ill son

is quickly running out.

The Avonside mother always

dreamed of travelling all over

the country, making memories

as a family of four before it was

too late, and now that dream is

almost coming true.

Last year, her eldest son Alize

won a family trip to the Gold

Coast in a competition run by

radio station MoreFM for the

kindness he showed his younger

brother, Andre, who has periventricular

leukomalacia – a terminal

brain injury caused by a lack

of oxygen to the brain – among

other complications.

Covid-19 ground those plans

to a halt this year, which was why

Ms Rasmussen believed it was

the perfect time to embark on

the road trip of her dreams – but

sourcing funding for it was a different

story.

“I’ve always wanted to travel

with the children and do something

as a family, but I wanted

to wait until they got older,” she

said.

“We almost lost him [Andre]

– I got to his room and he was

completely purple. I thought it

was his time to pass away.”

The life-threatening incident

happened three weeks ago which

she said put things into perspective.

“But he eventually started

breathing again. A lot of things

came into realisation at that point

so we’ve decided to do the trip in

September before it’s too late.”

She has set up a givealittle page

to cover the costs of the four-week

trip, needing at least $10,000 for

transport, accommodation food

and any costs associated with

Andre’s medical equipment.

LOVE: Danni

Rasmussen holds

Andre, 4, with Avie

Avana, 2, and Alize,

11, who will soon

embark on a family

road trip.

GOODING

She said the goal alone was

at a minimum, which did not

account for activities and any

unexpected costs along the way.

Community hub ‘filling a gap’

for families in Mairehau

• By Bea Gooding

A NEW community hub will

soon open its doors in Mairehau,

following an increased need for

physical and social support in

the area.

The Neighbourhood Trust

is in the process of revamping

their former Pay It Forward store

premises to make room for The

Whanau Centre.

It comes at a time when community

organisations have been

scrambling to pivot their services

to better support the increasing

number of people facing unemployment

and other hardships

due to Covid-19.

Said the trust’s community

development worker Don Benn:

“The Whanau Centre provides

a physical presence for The

Neighbourhood Trust to operate

in the heart of Mairehau, which

has seen an increased need for

community connection since the

lockdown.

“Accessibility is a big factor for

people needing some help, and

the centre will make it easier for

families to reach.”

During the lockdown, the

organisation delivered food

Dodge and Angela Sanderson, of The Neighbourhood Trust

who are about to open a new community hub in Mairehau.

packages to families and vulnerable

people in need, but Mr Benn

said “hand-outs” were not a long

term solution.

Even though the service is

essential, he believed having a

permanent facility was more

beneficial in the long run, such

as providing the opportunity for

people to build important skills.

Said Mr Benn: “With support

from the council, we can provide

services such as food packages,

a community garden project to

help families be more in control

of fresh fruit and vegetable production,

a drop-in centre where

people can share their burdens

and potentially be referred to

places for more specific help.

“We’d love to see an opportunity

for driver licensing classes

to occur as well as work-ready

skills like preparing CVs, interviewing

skills and dressing for

interviews.”

The project has been in the

works since January this year,

which Mr Benn believed was

“filling a gap” in the Mairehau

community.

The trust’s former Pay It

Forward store previously sold

locally handcrafted goods, with

its proceeds being fed back into

community projects.

But with the premises now

vacated, they believed it was a

perfect opportunity to utilise the

space and get the project off the

ground which will be ready to

enjoy by the end of August.

“Covid-19 has really accentuated

the need for community

connection. Loss of jobs and

hours of work means that people

are needing extra support at this

time,” he said.

“Although we are at level 1

again, the ongoing effects last

longer, so The Whanau Centre

is an ideal location to offer that

support.”

In Brief

ROADING UPGRADE

The full reconstruction of

Warden St between Petrie St

and Hills Rd, Richmond, is set

to be completed by next year.

New drainage, footpaths, road

resurfacing, kerbs, channels

and berms will be installed. The

aim of this work is to repair

earthquake damage and improve

traffic safety for road users.

TRAFFIC LIGHT CONCERNS

Concerns have been raised

by residents regarding the

signalised intersection at Ferry

Rd, Rutherford St and Palinurus

Rd, at the latest Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board meeting. Their main

concern is the timing of the

turning arrow when attempting

to turn right, believing it was

not long enough to allow more

than one car to pass. The board

is seeking advice from the city

council “as a matter of urgency.”

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

The New Brighton Community

Gardens is seeking new trust

members to help the gardens

continue to operate in the

community. They are looking for

volunteers who have an interest

in gardening and sustainability

or have governance and financial

experience. Phone Michele on

388 0192 for more information.

‘I love them so much and I’m

never giving up on my children’

School holiday fun

Lee Patterson, 11, of Shirley, with husky dog

Shackleton at the International Antarctic

Centre.

• From page 1

“It’s important that we can

have those fun memories with

him anywhere in our homeland

especially when he’s not with us

anymore,” she said.

“There will be nothing worse

than going to do those things

and feeling that he missed out.”

In 2015 Ms Rasmussen was

overjoyed to learn she was pregnant

with triplets.

That joy quickly turned sour

when a raft of complications

arose, causing the loss of one

of her babies during early pregnancy,

with the other two babies

born prematurely at 24 weeks.

The twins were “fighting for

their lives” following an emergency

Caesarean, but weighing

in at 345gm, baby Ace did not

survive.

Andre clung to life weighing

890gm, undergoing serious

operations to keep him alive,

but he developed PVL while in

the neonatal intensive care unit

which caused brain damage, and

was also born with chronic lung

disease and epilepsy.

“It’s horrible watching him

suffer,” she said.

Raising Alize, Andre and

Avie Avana as a single mother

of three was “very exhausting”

at times, but the love she felt for

them was what kept her going.

“As soon as I became a mum,

I knew what I wanted to do in

life,” she said.

“I’m doing the best I can, I

want to be a good role model;

I love them so much and I’m

never giving up on my

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the

Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust, a

non-profit organisation formed in 2002

to protect one of New Zealand’s most

important coastal wetlands. Each week

she introduces a new bird found in the

estuary. Her column aims to raise the understanding

of the values and uniqueness of the area.

Protecting chicks makes

kingfisher aggressive

THE COLOURFUL little

kingfisher are found at several

sites around our estuary.

They prefer to perch rather

than walk on the ground on

mudflats.

You will see them on rocks,

logs, jetties and even washing

lines.

They eat insects, lizards and

mice but mainly crabs which they

return to their perch where they

batter the legs off before swallowing

the main body.

Pellets of indigestible remains

are regurgitated and you will see

these, together with piles of crab

legs on and near rocks when you

walk along the South New Brighton

jetty, which is a favourite dinner

table for these birds.

They may be a small bird but

are absolutely fearlessly aggressive

when protecting chicks and will

attack other birds coming too

close and even dive-bomb mammals

such as cats and dogs.

They nest inside trees and sand

EQC and insurance

claims – still relevant

to property purchases

Charlotte Grimshaw,

Associate at Saunders & Co reports:

Conveyancing in Christchurch and

Canterbury can be a trickier task than in other

parts of New Zealand due to the Canterbury

Earthquakes and their effect on the process.

Unless you are buying a property that was built

post quakes, you need to be aware of what

damage occurred from the quake events, and

whether it has been repaired.

To assist the sale process, a seller should be

able to provide a prospective purchaser with

information on all claims including scope(s)

of damage and evidence of repairs such as

sign offs by EQC/ Fletcher Building and their

contractors for a managed repair, or payout

letters and invoices for repairs completed

(where cash settled and the seller organized

the repairs). The same should be provided for

land and insurance claims.

If any repairs are outstanding, it is important

for purchasers to be informed of what

remains unrepaired and whether the vendor

will be crediting the funds paid out for the

repairs on settlement or not. Providing

such information is also helpful for aiding

purchasers in being able to obtain satisfactory

insurance cover and finance.

If buying or selling an “as is where is

property” (where no repairs have been

completed and all benefits under the

claims are being retained by the seller), it is

especially important for both parties to seek

legal advice on the contents of any Agreement

for Sale and Purchase before entering it, and

the implications of the uncompleted repairs.

It is also now the standard process for non

“as is where is” property sales for remaining

rights in EQC claims to be assigned by

the seller to purchaser on settlement via a

document called a Deed of Assignment.

This Deed informs EQC about the transfer

of the property and who is taking over

any remaining benefit in the EQC claims

lodged for the property from the settlement

date. Having rights assigned then allows

purchasers to deal with EQC regarding such

claims in the future, such as settling unsettled

claims or dealing with further quake damage

if found.

Changing the perception of libraries

MIKE MORONEY is on a

mission to change people’s

perceptions of libraries – and

librarians.

He has launched a new library

interview series, The Unlikely

Librarian, which features conversations

with local writers in

equally unlikely locations.

Award-winning author, performer

and poet Ben Brown will

be the first to feature in the series

which kicks off next month,

where book lovers will also be

able to soak up the conversation

in person.

For Mr Moroney, of Linwood,

it was an opportunity to reach a

younger age group – particularly

men – who may not realise all

the resources and facilities that a

library can offer.

“I wanted to get out and about

among the community and find

a way to engage people and stoke

interest in our libraries, along

with sharing fantastic works by

some of our best local writers,”

he said.

“There are so many creatives

living in my own neighbourhood

that I thought ‘why not start the

conversation in Lyttelton with a

poet and award-winning writer

and try out a friendly approach.”

Mr Moroney said people were

often surprised to learn he was

a librarian, and he wanted this

series to remind people that

librarians come in many guises.

“It is also an opportunity for

people to see that librarians

come in many guises. For example,

I am over six feet, covered

in tattoos and have a very bushy

beard,” he said.

“On meeting me, people are

often surprised when I say I am

a librarian. In my past life, I was

a chef but the everyday stress

prompted a fantastic career

restart two years ago.”

The first session will be held at

Lyttelton’s Civil and Naval bar,

where he hoped to host 60min

conversations with various creatives

over the next few months

across locations in Christchurch.

Said city council head of

libraries and information

Carolyn Robertson: “We want

to highlight the importance of

fresh spaces to spark fresh conversations

on the evolving role of

libraries – and librarians.

“Our ‘unlikely librarian’ is a

gifted talker and knows how to

share a good story with our burgeoning

library audience.

“We hope to make the most

of a casual atmosphere where

people can sit back and take in a

creative approach to ‘our library’

in a non-traditional setting.”

Among Brown’s most popular

works are a memoir, A Fish in

the Swim of the World, an awardwinning

children’s book, A

Booming in the Night – illustrated

by Helen Taylor – and a book

of poems, Between the Kindling

and the Blaze: Reflections on the

Concept of Mana.

“We will talk about Ben’s work,

the creative process, and the role

of libraries in connecting to his

audience,” said Mr Moroney.

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham

sees clients with a range of symptoms but

many of their middle-aged and senior clients

visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front of

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way

near the groin can give an ache in the knee

(especially at night in bed).

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

been “given up on” or told to live with the

pain, she made a difference to her health

and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can be the

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder

pain and the same few treatments could

make a huge difference for you.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the joint in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

HIP PAIN

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated

than surgery. After only one treatment you

should know that it will work for you. Call

them before 31 July and save $50.00 on

that treatment

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the

door and there is ample parking. To enquire about joint pain treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

HOME & HEATING

Ground moisture barrier

under low sub-floor

Now with the colder and wetter weather on

its way, home owners are focusing on ways

to make their homes comfortable, warm

and healthy for their families throughout

winter. Rising damp is an issue that affects

many of our older properties which suffer

from poor, or no, ground moisture barrier.

In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many

people have relocated to homes that suffer

from rising damp which can be associated

with health problems. Independent tests have

shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise

from the ground and enter a house every day,

leading to mildew, mould, condensation and

musty smells. Moulds can produce various

allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and

very young are especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a

locally owned and operated firm. The team

understands the problems caused by rising

damp and are there to help. They will come

to your damp home and pump a lightweight,

flowable foam concrete under your timber

floored home.

While insulation is important, it has been

recognised that it is dampness that is the real

villain in the house. The new Healthy Homes

Standards introduced by the government

effective from the 1st July 2019 now has

a requirement to install ground moisture

barriers, a key element in the armory to fight

moisture in the home.

Dr Larry Bellamy BE (hons) PhD in a

report dated 1988: Foam Concrete Under

Timber Floors: An Energy Analysis assessed

the effects of placing Foam Concrete over

damp soil and had this to say: Condensation

on the underside of a timber floor can occur

where the floor is suspended over damp

ground and the inside air temperature falls

close to the crawl space air temperature.

Much energy is required to vaporize moisture

that penetrates the structure. By avoiding

underfloor condensation, foam concrete can

reduce floor heat losses by up to 90%.

• Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd can in most

cases, install a Ground Moisture Barrier

under the suspended wooden floor of your

home, even when there is no crawl space.

• BRANZ Appraised; Appraisal Number 961

• Members of the Insulation Association of

New Zealand.

• We offer a free measure and quote in the

Canterbury region with no obligations.

• Assessments can be made in all other

regions by arrangement.

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete

Ltd now for your free, no obligation quote

and complimentary appraisal of your

underfloor ground moisture barrier needs.

What makes a great

Heat Transfer System?

There are a number of Heat Transfer

systems on the market. Smooth-Air

ventilation specialists offer a range of

HTU Heat Transfer Units with carefully

selected components to optimise the

system:

They use insulated duct to transfer

the heated air with as little heat loss as

possible. The fan moves sufficient air

for the distance and number of rooms,

without being noisy. The diffusers send

the heat to the floor, not to skim the

across the ceilings. All components are

good quality - designed to operate for

years without problems.

Smooth-Air’s HTUs come in a range

of options: One to four rooms, with or

without thermostat and with a choice

of grilles and diffusers. HTUs improve

energy efficiency in your house, as you are

using excess heat. They have low power

consumption - only 80watts for the three

room system. Circulating air through the

house also reduces the risk of damp.

You can also choose the HTU version

with downjet diffusers, which throw the

warm air downwards to the floor. These

downjet diffusers can also be adjusted to

regulate which room receives the most

warm air.

An average size living room requires 2-4

kw of heating, yet appliances such as log

burners generate heat in the region of 10

-20kw. This leaves an excess of 8 -16kw of

heat which sits at high level in the heated

room, usually above door level.

Heat transfer units work best where very

hot air has ‘stratified’ into a layer near the

ceiling. So heat pumps, which circulate

warm air around the room with no

layering, are not suitable as a heat source

by themselves. However, if you have both

log burner and a heat pump, heat transfer

systems with thermostat can work very

well: The heat pump stops operating once

the heat from the fire has heated the room,

and the heat transfer kicks in above this

point, once there is a layer of hot air at the

ceiling.
