What a ripper


Little Lola Sim, 4, finds some space among the crowd to go hulahooping at Queenstown Playcentre’s Christmas fundraiser last Saturday.

The play­centre raised more than $5000 – their target – to bankroll roof repairs and new bathrooms.

Co-organiser Peta Carey says parents are grateful to local supporters, performer Noel Coutts, MC Craig “Ferg” Ferguson and more than 60 businesses that donated items.
