A Queenstown chopper company and a Rugby World Cup-winning coach have helped raise money for the Cure Kids charity.
Over The Top yesterday (Tuesday) flew former All Blacks coach Sir Graham Henry from Queenstown to a charity function at Northburn Station near Cromwell.
The Eurocopter – flown by Over The Top owner Louisa ‘Choppy’ Patterson – sported a red nose in recognition of Cure Kids’ Red Nose Month.
Henry spoke to about 200 people at a fundraising luncheon about his new book, Final Word.
The luncheon raised more than $5000 for Cure Kids.
The charity – founded in Queenstown – funds research into life-threatening children’s illnesses.
Appropriately, Cure Kids is the All Blacks’ new official charity.
