Train trip a valued break Kids love farm visit By MARGARET IRVINE Police dogs: Youngsters line the Lindale fences to watch police dog handler Ty Davidson and his dog Hades. Rabbit run: Ashleigh Knight of Paraparaumu with one of the Lindale rabbits. A day at Lindale Farm on Saturday was a treat for chil- dren receiving treatment for cancer and kidney disorders. A special train, the Midwinter Express, left Wel- lington Station at 9am carrying the children, their families and carers to the Paraparaumu farm. Paraparaumu's Tamara Knight said she and her daughter Ashleigh travelled by bus to Porirua to enjoy the trip with the other families. Cara Dunford, from the Hutt Valley, who took the train to Lindale with the whole family, including one- year-old son Peter who is being treated for leukaemia, said the family outing was a nice way to meet other people who were in the same situ- ation and to have a break. The youngsters enjoyed sheep shearing and cow milking demonstrations, roamed around the farm and Lindale complex, were entertained through the day and polished off 135 pizzas'', said Virginia Wilton, one of the farm managers. The emergency services came along. We had a police dog demonstration and the fire brigade was there. The Otaki Social Riders came along with their Harleys. Christy Lewis, who was doing the face painting, gave up her whole day and we had artists doing sketches of the youngsters. We were dumbstruck at the amount of help we had to make this such a successful day.'' Mrs Wilton and co-manager Wendy Rigarlsford were approached by Tranz Metro train managers Wayne Bedford and Gary Innes some months ago to see if they would host the children. The pair had run a similar trip to Trentham last year and said they again wanted to help pro- vide joy to families living with the unknown every day''. Of course we said yes', and we offered to provide all the food and entertainment. Girls can do anything, you know. But we couldn't have managed without the amazing support of the individuals and busi- nesses who supplied the lunches, baked hundreds of gifts and gave us goodies for the children,'' Mrs Wilton said. We hope to make it an annual event. As well as sick children, we have a big heart for the children whose famil- ies are not so well off and who can't afford treats.''
