The annual Running of the Roses in Helensville on February 20 will help two local schools. Numbered roses are set adrift on the Kaipara River at 1pm and the first three fished out downstream win prizes to the value of $5000. Random spot prizes will also be drawn during the event. It s a twist on the February 14 Valentine s Day theme, with people able to buy a rose for $5 and enter in the hope of winning a good prize for their loved one. The 2500 tickets are selling quickly from participating Helensville businesses and will be available on the day before the race. Proceeds go towards charities and community organisations. This year s recipients include Sunnydays Early Child- hood Centre to assist in its playground redevel- opment, and Helensville Primary School to help towards reroofing the school hall. Organised by the Helensville Lions Club and the Helensville Dis- trict Business Associ- ation, the Running of the Roses was formed around a raffle idea from Matt Hampton of Helensville. The festival includes stalls from 10am with the emphasis on a Food Fare . Helensville Lions invite any local producers or suppliers to participate. This would provide a great opportunity for local producers to promote themselves to the area, Mr Hampton says. Those interested can call Mr Hampton on 0272-213-226.
