MAGNIFICENT GESTURE: The owner of a cropping and grazing block at Waerenga a Hika, who passed away earlier this year, has gifted the sale of a 21 hectare property in Brown Road to the Starship Foundation and Eastland Helicopter Rescue Trust. It has a rateable value of $1.67 million. Starship will get two-thirds of the proceeds and Eastland Helicopter Rescue Trust will get one third. In addition, Ray White Gisborne, the agency marketing the property, will donate the commission from the sale to Ronald McDonald House. The late owner's name has been kept confidential. The gesture has been described as 'truly life-saving', and has stunned the benefiting organisations. The property will be sold at auction on July 9.Picture supplied
