Mr McKenzie said the response of Frankton and Kelvin Heights residents "was just amazing", with Wakatipu Lions members collecting non-perishable food while a fire engine, ambulance and police car sounded their sirens.

He said two vans and a station wagon were needed to cart the Christmas goodies to the food bank, which was now "stocked up and there for the community going into 2012".

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
