Lockdown cans sculpture garden for Women’s Refuge

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from North Shore Times

A sculpture exhibition to raise money for the Women’s Refuge has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 lockdown.

NZ Sculpture OnShore was set to take place at Fort Takapuna in late October, after already being delayed by a year.

But a digital exhibition and fundraising campaign is set to go ahead in its place.

NZ Sculpture OnShore Dee Paranihi said with the current lockdown and uncertainty around alert levels, the risk of continuing with the live exhibition was too great.

“Having already postponed the event by a year due to COVID-19, this is a huge disappointment for our team and sad news I’m sure, to you, too,” she said.
 
“However, all is not lost! With many of the stunning sculptures completed, or close to it, we are now focussing on bringing you the artworks via other platforms and galvanising our supporter base to raise money for Woman’s Refuge.”

More details on the digital exhibition will be released soon.

Who’ll get my records?

Public Trust

We all have special things we want to protect and share with the people we love when we pass away. It could be your record collection, perhaps some artwork, or even that classic car you’ve spent so long restoring. If it’s important to you, put it in your will. ​

An up-to-date will is the best way to protect your legacy – and your prized possessions. ​

If you last made a will when disco was all the rage, it’s time for an update. ​
