A fundraiser is being held this weekend for a
Wellington footballer so badly injured he has
been ordered not to work for six months and can
never play his sport again.
David Capstick collided with a Karori Water-
side team-mate during a game in April. Both
were left unconscious and needing ambulances.
While his team-mate recovered well, Capstick
suffered three depressed skull fractures. Three
titanium plates were inserted and he is
Stunned team-mates wanted to show their
support for Cappy , and decided to hold a
casino-themed fundraiser to support the self-
employed builder while he was out of work.
The casino event, which will cost $25 for a
drink, snacks, and gambling money, will be
held at Four Kings on Saturday at 7.30pm.
There will also be a silent auction.
Event organiser Michael Greene said they
particularly wanted to help because Capstick
had a family to support.
Costs have been covered by Four Kings and
Yellow Fever, allowing money raised to go to
Capstick and his family.
Capstick said he was grateful for the football
community s support, but it was also very hum-
bling. I feel bad that everyone s being so nice.
His skull touched on the speech areas of his
brain, initially making it difficult for him to
speak clearly, and he becomes tired easily.
His partner, Sarah Muir, said when she was
called she thought it would be just another
sports injury. She almost collapsed from the
shock when she arrived at the hospital to see
Capstick wearing a neck brace and in bed.
However, they were both thankful his con-
dition was not worse, with no bleeding on the
brain or skills affected apart from speech.

Icecream goes down a treat

The icecream Oscars are out, and Wellington s
Carrello del Gelato has won gold.
Miramar resident Nathan Meyer founded Car-
rello del Gelato in 2004 after a trip to Italy left
him with a passion for gelato.
He entered the New Zealand icecream awards
for the first time this year and was amazed to
receive a gold award.
The icecream had to score more than 90 per cent
in judging to be accorded gold status.
Mr Meyer s mango sorbet, a personal favourite,
impressed judges with its balance and texture, he
Mango, which I think is one of the best, isn t
actually overly popular. That might change now.
He began the business after noticing traditional
gelatos and sorbets were uncommon in New Zea-
People were quite closed about their methods so
it took a lot of trial and error to get the recipe
right, Mr Meyer said.
He has one other staff member and said he
made almost all his products himself. There s lots
of sleepless nights.
Gelato and sorbets are different -- gelato is
dairy-based and sorbet fruit-based.
There were five flavours in the retail range, he
said, but he could make up to 50.
His favourites were Stracciatella, a vanilla
gelato with chocolate flakes, and mandarin blood
[New Zealanders favourite] is chocolate, cho-
colate, chocolate. It s probably four-to-one to any
