Hi Ho silver rider

Gisborne surfer, musician, and now almost a pensioner, John Minogue is turning his 65th birthday into a way to raise money for the Wainui Surf Life Saving Club.

Tomorrow night everyone is invited to the Super-annuitants Music Night at the surf club from 7.30pm.

People are asked to bring a koha for the door and can look forward to a night of live music from Gisborne bands The NGOs, Crumb Factory, Golden Rule, The Young At Work, Cross Culture and Moananui.

It's BYO food and drinks, but there will be a cash bar.

John has been a member of the club since the '80s and first took to a surfboard in 1968.

All money raised will go towards new equipment for the club and annual overheads.
