On a mission

When TV personality Kim Watkins first arrived in Borneo in September 2006,

she had no idea it would be a life-changing experience. Filming in the jungle,

she realised the plight of the orangutans, and determined then and there to

help save this endangered species. Kim joins Take 5 and the Australian

Orangutan Project in trying to raise awareness.

My son’s wish

Single mum Lorinda and her only son Reace both lived with the fear that one

day soon she wouldn’t be there for him. Lorinda has cystic fibrosis and was so

ill in January this year she was put on the lung transplant list. Just four months

later she got the call to go to the hospital – and Reace confessed it was his

birthday wish that she got new lungs. Lorinda tells Take 5 about her life-

saving operation and the gift of seeing her son grow up.

Let it snow

Christmas came early to Kalgoorlie when a local school was transformed into a winter

wonderland. When parent Nikki read about a yoghurt competition and encouraged

kids at her daughter’s primary school to enter, the response was phenomenal – to the

point where the little school of 410, with 1800 entries, won. Snow machines,

toboggans and snowmen turned the playground into a veritable white Christmas.

Talking point …

Pensioner Wolfgang loved playing Santa at the local Stockwell shopping centre each

year. His part-time job restored his faith in the human spirit, he tells Take 5. But on

November 5, Wolfgang got a big shock – under new government guidelines all

pensioners doing seasonal work would have to declare it to Centrelink. If he continued

playing Santa, he’d have to live on less than his current pension!
