We also have given donations to the Canterbury Westpac Helicopter Service, and to St John for the Health Shuttle.
At our most recent “Days for Girls” 219 sanitary shields were sewn and prepared.
We have entered a team in the Relay for Life.
Archives continue to be stored at the Ashburton Museum, with a need for more named photographs.

Another beautiful Saturday saw a big crowd take to the course in round 2 of the Brandon Cup.
The leaderboard had a sort of upside down look to it, with Perry Hunt on top of the pile.
I know! I was as shocked as you are, but the scores were re-counted and the cards double checked. It turns out Perry did actually score 40 points, well done matey.
He was followed closely by Darren Peace on 39 then Murray Moorehead, Gaby and Davo on 38. Solid scores all around.
After 2 rounds of the Brandon Cup, Greig Sparrow and Blair Snowball lead the way with 75 points. Jeff Hewitt sits just behind on 73 then Brad Fallaver and Gaby round out the top five with 72.
Round three is this Saturday, who will hold their nerve and finish with a flourish to pick up the cup? Tight call but I will find it hard to look past young Blair, he has been very consistent all year.
On Sunday we have two groups of pennants playing.
The scratch Holmes teams are at Tinwald for a double header. First up they have to play each other. I am not sure of the teams, but with Owen, Blair, Jeff, Josh, Dave and the Hopster plus others, there are surely going to be some great match-ups.
In the second games Ash 1 take on Temuka and Ash 2 face the strong Composite team. Good luck to all. If you like your golf R18 with a tad of violence and a smidge of adult humour.
Then get down to the Brandon on Sunday afternoon as in the Patterson grade the Vision Insurance pups will be getting their tails docked by the Brandon rottweilers.
Tom has been frantically calling players as it seems that many of them are washing their hair on Sunday, hopefully he can pull a team together.
In the other corner Arkrights phone has been running hot, with players wanting to step up and be part of the battle, the hardest part will be who to leave out.
If anyone can spare a bit of time on Sunday we could do with a referee or two and if anyone knows first aid, the triage tent will be set up outside the clubrooms.
Results and stories next week.
Five of our players took part in the Bastille Day tournament in Christchurch, with
Neville Bensdorp being a member of the winning team, while Ellen

Ashburton St John also thanked for a donation to the Health Shuttle.
Wakanui members and their families were also thanked for their help in supplying, dressing and modelling gowns for the recent Bridal Parade at Cup Day.

Names were taken for cars and runners to deliver Meals on Wheels on Wednesday August 4.
Discussion was held on the Centennial of WI display at the Museum later in the year.
One team will be entered in the WI Indoor Bowls competition on September 24.
Our speaker Yvonne Lister then gave an outline of all the volunteer services she supports which gained her the Ashburton District Council Civic Award for 2020.
This award is made in recognition of volunteer work undertaken by a person in the community that benefits the Ashburton District and its people.
A very busy person who certainly deserved this award.
Next meeting Wednesday 25th August at 1.45pm.
