Community help: Oliver Lodewyk, 9, and his younger brothers James, 8, and Hugo, 4. Oliver had his first infusion in San
Francisco last Thursday. He will have them done once a week, five hours at a time.
A HUGE thank you goes to a long
list of Bay of Islands businesses who
have supported a fundraising cam-
paign for Oliver Lodewyk, 9.
The total raised is now more than

parents Rachel and Adam and
brothers James and Hugo until two
He was born with Morquio syn-
drome, a rare degenerative meta-
bolic condition in which the body is
missing a substance needed to
break down long chains of sugar
molecules. The condition means he
is confined to a wheelchair.
The enzyme he lacks is being
made synthetically in the US and
Oliver has been selected for an
18-month life-saving enzyme
replacement therapy trial.
His family and friends have fund-
raised so they can live as a family in
San Francisco while Oliver receives
medical treatment for 18 months.
For the past five weeks Debbie
Shepherd has asked Bay of Islands
businesses if they can donate any-
thing to auction off on TradeMe for

Join in village dance
A Global Village Dance is
planned for March 24 at the Kai-
kohe War Memorial Hall from
7.30pm to 11.30pm.
Tony Lane, a former Far North
resident now teaching dance in
London, says the emphasis is on
social partner dancing rather
We ll have a mixed pro-
gramme of dancing including
ballroom, jive, Latin, swing,
salsa, sequence, line, ceilidh,
party and easy dances, and
more, he says.
The intention is to make sure
everyone gets to dance a bit. We
don t expect anyone to know all
the dances, that is not the point.
The aim is to bring different sorts
of people together through
mutual enjoyment of dance. The
intended age range is 14 to 90.
Tony thinks Kaikohe needs
something like this. Two years
ago he did a demonstration of
Argentinian tango at the Bay of
Islands Festival at Kerikeri and
thought then that an all-inclusive
dance for everyone was needed.
Years ago there used to be
community dances in halls all
over the country, he says.
In the days before TV practi-
cally everyone would go to a com-
munity dance and they would all
In London Tony teaches
Argentinian tango, hop and
swing. He s also run large-scale
outdoor dance events -- see
There will also be a series of
taster classes starting from
1.30pm in all forms of dance.
Entry is $5 plus bring a plate of
food to share. The price is the
same whether you just come to
the taster classes or to the even-
ing dance, or come to it all.
Lessons and demonstrations
will be by local dance teachers
and dancers from further afield.
We have confirmed partici-
pation from many groups and
individuals in ballroom and
Latin, rock and roll, swing, line,
folk, ceilidh and promises of
demonstrations of ballet and
belly dancing, he says.
Dance teachers or groups that
want to take an active role in this
event should email TonyLane
email@example.com promptly. Or
just turn up and join in.
