Milky donation Neighbours of Puriri dairy farm in Kumeu lapped up some of the 3000 litres of milk on offer after the owners didn't want to waste it. Gary Worrall says they loaded it into 200 litre drums, rang up friends and gave it away. ''It's a real waste to lose it but we didn't want to dump it,'' Mr Worrall says.

Gilmour's wife loses battle The wife of comedian Ewen Gilmour has died after a long battle with cancer. Catherine Gilmour, 36, succumbed to the dis- ease on February 19. She was diagnosed with a brain tumour sev- eral years ago while her husband was serving on the Waitakere City Council. Mr Gilmour resigned from the post in 2007 to spend more time with his ailing wife and the pair settled into a quieter life at Port Wai- kato. Both were big fund- raisers for Variety -- the Children's Charity. Mr Gilmour is also a long-time supporter of the Mad Butcher and Suburban Newspapers Community Trust. He donated his ser- vices at the trust's large Operation Heal fund- raising evening in December. Proceeds from the function will help pur- chase equipment for the National Burn Centre. Ewen's help meant a lot to us,'' chairman Sir Peter Leitch says. His wife was ser- iously ill at that stage and yet they both found the time to include us in their thinking and plan- ning at what must have been a tremendously dif- ficult time.''
