A fundraiser every second year for the Cholmondeley Children’s home, which provides short-term respite care for children aged 3 – 12. This is the South Island’s Largest Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition (see http://www.sculpturenz.co.nz/). Lots of photos for me to choose from. I’ve just put a few of my favourites here, but have more on my Flickr site at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/97210148@N08/sets/72157637717466504/
