Boot camp raises $15,000 for trustJessie Johnston
Nelson College for Girls gymnasium was a sea of pink during last Sundays Boot Camp for Breast Cancer.Over 100 pink-laden men and women turned out to dance, jump, run and three-legged walk around the girls college gym in a bid to raise money for breast cancer. Several groups joined in the activities, including team Peek a Boobies, who say their motivation for supporting the day was down to their personal connection with breast cancer. We have friends amongst us who have had breast cancer, plus weve done it before and it was fun, and its for a good cause so we decided to do it again. This time weve actually added a few extra people who havent done it before, says Peek A Boobies leader, Carol Parkinson. Its really fun, the fact youre doing something fun for a good cause, what more could you ask for, and plus theres bubbles.
Dental Council put public at riskThe dental licence of Dr Nicholas Smith should have been stripped years earlier, according to a prominent member of the Nelson dental profession, who says mem-bers of the public were put at risk.Dr Nicholas Smith closed his Stoke clinic this month after years of complaints and a conviction for fraud. His business went into liquidation owing $164,948 to pa-tients who had pre-paid for dental work, staff, the IRD and other unsecured credi-tors.But one member of the dental profession,
who spoke on the condition of anonym-ity, says the Dental Council should have stepped in years earlier, and blames it for putting the public at risk. They really havent done the public any favours. They havent done the profession any favours or Nic any favours, really. Given the long list of issues over the years, theyve got an obligation under the Health Practition-ers Competence Assurance Act to protect the public, and theres a general feeling amongst the dental community that they havent fulfilled their obligation.
The Dental Council did not renew Dr Smiths practicing licence and he handed in his registration at the start of this month. Other Nelson dentists are now working to make sure Dr Smiths patients are cared for, but none would speak on the record to Nelson Weekly after an email circulated asking for them not to speak to media. But
the source says dentists are helping. The key message is that the wider dental com-munity are coming together and really want to support the patients. Chief executive of the Dental Council, Ma-rie Warner, was unavailable for comment.Liquidator, Geoff Falloon, says another dental practise has bought the former Stoke Dental Clinic. His liquidator report shows 38 patients are owed money, includ-ing one for $3100.It also shows the shareholders bank ac-count is overdrawn by $550,349.

Trainers from Wairua Body Coaching Systems were on hand; leading teams in a number of games, while participants themselves had fashioned costumes from any pink accessory available; there were bras, tutus, glitter wigs and angel wings. Even Tasman Makos player David Havili took part, show-ing his support with a splash of pink, and helping Bref-fni ORourke judge the best dressed woman, man and team. The efforts of this years Boot Camp for Breast Cancer managed to raise a total of $15,000. Event sponsors donated $9000, while $4000 came
from individual registrations and sponsorships, and the remainder from raffle tickets and refreshments. Its been another great fun-draising event for the trust, and were truly awed with the support weve had, and of course, we have to thank the community of participants there on the day for making it such a success. Everyone said they had a grand time, says Kate Coote, founder of the Nelson Re-gional Breast and Gynaeco-logical Trust. All money raised at Boot Camp for Breast Cancer, for the Nelson Regional Breast and Gynaecological Cancer Trust, stays in the top of the South Island, says Kate, one reason the event is so popular.

Nelson lawyer offers flights to fugitive findersA Nelson lawyer who wants to gift a New Zealand holiday to the person who tipped off Brazilian authorities to escaped murderer Phillip John Smiths whereabouts, says he has also had offers from tourism busi-nesses around the country.John Fitchett has ties to Brazil after some recent visits, and has offered to buy airfares for the woman and her partner or friend, as a gesture of thanks for her part in locating the violent offender.John had put out a call on television show Seven Sharp for other Kiwis to extend their generosity by provid-ing accommodation, activities and meals for the woman during her
stay here. So far Ive had 14 people from around the country contact me with offers of activities or accommoda-tion, he told Nelson Weekly.The offers include jet boating, a heli-copter ride up Mt Cook and accom-modation in Nelson. John says the idea behind the offer was to reward the citizen.I had the idea to just do this thing in a fit of euphoria, shall we say, when I heard it was a member of the public who dobbed him in, he told the New Zealand Herald last week. For a private individual to find him and tip him off, I thought that was really great.
