Just call them the North Island’s own group of seven.

Just call them the North Island’s own group of seven.

In an incredibly generous move, seven of the North Island’s top artists have donated eight pieces of work to be sold in a silent auction, with all proceeds to go to the Gazette’s Hamper Fund.

The pieces include:

•  Mt. Cain, Autumn Blueberries by the Gazette’s own Gordon Henschel.

•  Jessie Roland’s painting of San Jo.

•  Mammalilaculla Island Totem- by Heather Brown.

•  Shirley Dougall’s Cathedral Grove.

• Heron on the Move by Lyn Barton.

• Rainforest and Ryan’s Pickup, both prints by  Bob Hemphill.

• Rita Grier’s Magnolia.

The works of art will be displayed in many places on the North Island and will be rotated from time to time so everyone can have an opportunity to bid on them.

For 31 years the North Island Hamper Fund has been providing those in need with a traditional Christmas dinner and presents for the children.

Each hamper is tailored to the size of the family and the age and gender of all children, so that there is enough to go around and each family’s holiday is special and unique.

We serve every community in the North Island region, over the years you’ve helped us raise hundreds of thousands of dollars, money that’s helped thousands of North Island people have a better Christmas.
