Eat Drink and be Crafty fair raises $7,534 for Life Flight

A message from the Mana Lions Club


News update - posted 11 April 2013:
Eat Drink and Be Crafty is a special event on many points, no imported craft, no second hand craft, all profits go to Life Flight and what a location. Battle Hill is second to none, "this reminds me of rural craft fairs back in the UK, worth the day out even if I sell nothing" was the comment from one stallholder. The 2013 fair was the second that Mana Lions had organised and it was blessed with a warm windless day. Between 5 and 7,000 people strolled around the fair listening to the music, sampling food and drink and of course buying some really creative crafts that were for sale. Kids (and some adventurous parents) were catered for with old fashioned games like the three legged race, egg and spoon race and the 50 metre dash or stumble or walk whichever way they wanted to do it. Most importantly $7,534 will be donated to Life Flight as a result of our efforts. Thanks to all of you who visited, if you missed it the date for your diary next year is Sunday 26 January 2014, see you there as a visitor or a stallholder. Visit for more details.


A message from the Mana Lions Club


The Lions Clubs of New Zealand have, for the past year, been running a campaign entitled “Heads up for Kids” which is a project to raise funds for programmes to assist our most precious asset...the Youth of this country.

We ask that you check your cupboards and drawers for any old currency, no longer in circulation which Lions can, through the Reserve Bank, convert to legal tender, on a dollar for dollar basis.

Resene Colour shops and New World Supermarkets are collection points and have specially designed boxes to take any old coins or banknotes. Australian currency and indeed all foreign coins and banknotes are acceptable.

This programme was originally scheduled to be for two months but such has been the response that the project is on going. To date over 8.5 tonnes of old coins and banknotes have been collected with currencies from countries as diverse as Belize and the Falkland Islands coming to light. This equates to a value of over $200,000. The aim is to achieve a figure of $1million,and,the Reserve Bank estimate that there is still about $116million in coins and banknotes yet unaccounted for.

Contact personnel from Mana Lions are:

          Bob Welsh tel: 915 0408

          Euan Thomson cell: 021 843 825

or simply drop any coins or banknotes into your local New World or Resene Colour shop.
