Nelson Leader : February 6th 2014
NEWS THE NELSON LEADER, FEBRUARY 6, 2014 13 BOWEL CANCER DETECTION AND PREVENTION Bowel/Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in New Zealand and is readily detectable in its early stages as a small polyp in the large bowel. CT colonography can detect clinically significant colon polyps that require removal. Over the last 4 months, 200 patients have had a CT colonography at Nelson Radiology : 3 cancers and 11 large polyps were diagnosed. You have a greater risk of developing bowel cancer if you: • Are over 50 yrs of age, or have a history of colon polyps • Have blood in your stools, or bouts of constipation or diarrhoea that have lasted more than one week. PREVENT BOWEL CANCER WITH EARLY DETECTION TALK TO YOUR GP ABOUT HAVING A CT COLONOGRAPHY AT NELSON RADIOLOGY Exciting opportunity: Angela Wratt of Upper Moutere has been awarded a scholarship through Nelson Building Society to study singing. She is pictured with NBSbranch manager Peter Havill. with Otago University’s associate professor of voice Judy Bellingham. Angela will also sing in the Dune- din Cathedral Choir and will also audition for two other choirs while there. The 22-year-old has been singing in choirs for nine years. She says she is excited and a bit nervous about the chance to study in Dunedin. ‘‘It’s a big deal. I’m absolutely thrilled and blown away that they have done it for me,’’ she says. She says the scholarship, initially for three months, should lead to some amazing opportunities. She will study classical musical and wants to be a ‘‘very good’’ chorister. Without the scholarship it would have been too much of a challenge to get down there. She says the chance to study with Judy Bellingham is a ‘‘dream come true . . . because she’s the best in the country. I’m really really grateful to the people who have made this happen’’. Nelson Building Society will sup- port Angela through the scholarship, which she was awarded at the New Zealand Combined Choir and Orchestra Summer School of Music Award puts chorister on path to dream U pper Moutere singer Angela Wratt has won a scholarship to study singing in Dunedin Photo: ALDEN WILLIAMS 105 Collingwood St, Nelson P: 03 548 2745 www.nelsonradiology.co.nz 5769405AA at Teapot Valley. The summer school is organised by Carl Browning and Inga Lane. Sir David Willcocks conducted the school from 2001 to 2007 and Denmark’s Ebbe Munk has conducted it three times. Brian Kay (an original founder of the King’s Singers) has conducted it twice and Jonathan Willcocks once. Carl says the school has received sponsorship from NBS since its early days. It started in 2001. Part of the money has been used in recent years to make an award for someone between the ages of 16 and 25 to attend a National Youth Choir of Great Britain (NYCGB) course before a concert in London’s Royal Albert Hall. He founded the NYCGB in 1983 and retired from it last Easter. Angela came to the summer school via one of the three regional choirs that Carl founded in 2002 with members from Golden Bay, Motueka and Nelson. Carl says that Angela, who was home schooled, is highly intelligent and will benefit from being exposed to the music scene and other talented singers in Dunedin. NBS branch manager Peter Havill said the bank was really proud to be associated with young people who excelled in their field.
