Blog: Leonie BarrieThe knicker vicar

Leonie Barrie | 20 October 2006

A vicar in a small New Zealand town has proved he can fulfil more than the spiritual needs of his flock by setting up a regular “knickers-run” so local women can stock up on intimate apparel. The brief problem first came to light when the local clothing shop stopped selling women's underwear, and Reverend Gary Husband gallantly stepped in by drumming up local volunteers to lay on transport between the small North Island town of Inglewood and the nearby city of New Plymouth. The first run is planned before Christmas – and if it’s a success could become a monthly event.
