How to help Gavin Hayes
Wed, 17 Oct 2012 7:00p.m.
Gavin Hayes is 82. He lives alone in a council flat in Rotorua and is by all means a very trusting, caring man.
But it's that kindness which has seen him lost the will to live after two teenage girls stole his car - twice.
Gavin was left with no reason to get out of bed, as bronchitis prevents him from even walking to the local shops.

In regards to Gavin Hayes story last night. It is disgusting what these two girls (brats) have done to this older gentleman "Gavin Hayes" in his later years of life which he is meant to be enjoying. If those girls were made to help him out (supervised) I am sure they would all see a different side to each other, as I am sure he has plenty of awesome stories to tell before his final days, which should be far away. I watched TV last night and was appalled that those girls made him feel he should be dead..those girls need to pay, how rude, one day they may be like Gavin...old, kind, trusting and caring, which obviously them girls are not at this present time!! shame on them. On the other hand we do have kind caring people out there, come on NZ lets show him its not all bad, maybe a nice holiday somewhere would be nice!
