NS EV Exceed in Fundraising Goal

With the sale of tickets and art work created by the children, the centre has raised over $2000 for Cure Kids, doubling our original target. Our donation will run across the screen on Friday nights Cure Kids Comedy Show.

A shark, a volcano and an apple tree - these were just some of the wearable art creations on show at a recent charity fundraiser.

Natural Steps in Ellerslie held their own art exhibition and Wearable Arts fashion show, with all funds raised going directly to Cure Kids, as part of their annual Red Nose Day appeal.

Centre Director Emma Hopkinson says a child's imagination is limitless.

"The costumes were influenced by three main themes.  The sky, the ocean and the land."

The children, all under five, each strutted down the centre of Leicester Hall in Ellerslie wearing their own creations, encouraged by the applause of the large crowd.

"The support on the day was amazing.  We had such a huge turnout and it made all of the hard work put into it worth it.

"Cure Kids has a special place with parents of young children," says Ms Hopkinson.

While many of the children are too young to understand the importance of Cure Kids, Natalia Hopkinson, four, has a good idea.

"We are doing a big show to help give money for the children who are sick in the hospitals. We are going to give it to the doctors so they can help them," she says.
