SU POLLARD: Is in New Zealand to help those in the Pacific Islands.

British songstress and comedy actress Su Pollard is in Christchurch, but her aim is to help people in the Pacific Islands.

Pollard spent yesterday with Ferrymead Lions Club member Andy Blakie as the pair inspected glasses for flaws at the club's recycling centre.

The club has, since 1987, been collecting old glasses, sterilising them and recalibrating them, to be sent to the organisation Volunteer Opthalmologist Services Overseas for redistribution to people with poor eyesight in the Pacific Islands.

Pollard, who is best known for her roles in British sitcoms Hi-de-Hi! and You Rang, M'Lord?, is in New Zealand promoting the tour of the British production of the musical Annie.
