With the island s Loren Harvey as one of the children represen- ting the foundation, the appeal may have had more significance, organ- iser Helen Richards says. The volunteers worked two-hour shifts over two days on March 23 and 24 and were positioned at Matiatia to catch the commuters, outside the chemist in Oneroa, at the supermarket in Ostend and also collected along Tahi Rd, Ms Richards says. She would like to thank her team of volunteers, some of whom come back year after year, and to the whole community who donated. We did so well -- it s the best so far, Ms Rich- ards says. Goodwill flows for fundraiser Morning tea: Care and Craft group volunteers Daphne Merriott and Nan Cotter serve scones at the Morra Hall giant market day. Tea and scones, books, clothes and second-hand treasures raised $4200 towards new projects at Morra Hall. Donations to the giant mar- ket day poured in during the week before the event on March 31 which buzzed with bargain hunters. Committee member Rona Weston says the goodwill flowed . The French Club rose to the occasion with a cake stall and in its role of handling cash sales for several tables of items. The happy cafe staff attended to everyone s needs and the clothing corner salespeople managed their items most efficiently. Morra Hall was built in the 1950s for the residents and ratepayers of Matiatia and Oneroa but is well used by a number of groups. It is seen as a community asset because it isn t owned by Auckland Council and it s run by a keen group of committee members with a wide range of skills. Money raised will go towards sound and lighting equipment, new wing curtains and storage solutions which are expected to cost $50,000. Thank you to the donors and helpers for the incredible effort put into this most suc- cessful day, Ms Weston says. Requests for grants are considered more favourably if applicants are able to show they have worked hard to raise money by their own efforts. We certainly did that. Your support for this much loved community hall is most appreciated. Sculpture wins praise Winning work: Auckland artist Deborah Crowe's sculpture Bit City. Auckland artist Deborah Crowe is the recipient of this year s Small Sculpture Prize. Her work Bit City won her $3000 at an awards ceremony at the Waiheke Community Art Gallery. Selector Philip Clarke and director of Auckland s Object- space says: One work intrigued me. It beckoned me. Close up it seemed more com- plex and bursting with an undisciplined energy than its first impression gave. It more than repaid my attention. The award for an original free-standing or wall sculpture up to 800mm in any dimension is the only national award exhibition for small sculpture in New Zealand. The exhi- bition, which is sponsored by Environ Skincare, was first initiated to complement the biennial headland -- Sculpture on the Gulf. It has proved so popular it is now held annu- ally. The gallery exhibition runs until May 7.
