This small, local group has, for many years, raised funds for medi- cal equipment to beneft hospices in Auckland, the oncology unit at Auckland Hospital and Starship Hospital among others. Now, once again, members of this dedicated club have set their sights on raising $2000, this time for Mercy Hospice which urgently needs two multi-cuff kits, adult scales and two pulse oximeters. To this end, the club is hosting a champagne breakfast and silent auction at 9.30am, Sunday, Novem- ber 25 at Barry Court Conference Centre in Parnell. Club member, Sylvia Jones urges anyone who would like to support the hospice, and who might also like to know more about becoming a member, to book a place at the breakfast event by Monday evening November 12. Cost is $35 pp. “We are really keen for this fund raiser to do well,” Sylvia says. “We would also love to see a few more people coming along who would like to be part of ongoing efforts. However, this is not a pre-requisite to attending the breakfast which we hope will be a fun and easy way to assist Mercy Hospice with much needed medical equipment.” Phoenix members meet every second month at Barrycourt Motel, Parnell at 6pm. The meet- ing includes dinner and a speaker. Fundraising is mostly done through raffes at meetings and a few spe- cial outings where a little extra is paid to provide a donation to one of the club’s benefciaries. To book a place at the upcom- ing champagne breakfast and silent auction call Sylvia Jones, ph 534 9093. Breakfast and bubbles big hospice fundraiser HOT stuff! Here’s a treat which will curry favour with foodie trav- ellers keen to explore countries where exciting cuisine is a given. If tasting your way through India whets your appetite, and you’re keen to experience true Indian favours without a butter chicken in sight then put Febru- ary 2013 in your diary. Magical India is hosting a culi- nary tour of India, which prom- ises to include hidden gems and exclusive experiences in some restaurants where it often takes months to secure a booking. The 12-day/11-night tour starts in New Delhi and ends in Mum- bai with an option to extend for an extra week and explore the Kerala region. One of India’s award-winning chefs will also lead the tour and introduce travellers to the fa- vours and aromas of his homeland ranging from lip-smacking street foods to dining like royalty. The tour will also visit 200-year old spice markets and a restaurant widely acclaimed to be the best Indian restaurant in the world. There will be a masterclass with a chef from the royal family, visits to spice plantations and a tradi- tional Indian fshing trip. The February 15-28, 2013 tour also allows time for other sight- seeing – visit the Taj Mahal and palaces in Rajasthan. Costs vary depending on accommodation preferences and the tour price does not include return fights from New Zealand. Visit www.magicalindia.co.nz for more details. THERE'S MORE TO INDIA THAN CURRY!
