Shore Plover Art Auction - London

The Shore Plover art auction took place on Friday 10 October in London to raise funds for the New Zealand Shore Plover (a rare species of Bird). Money raised will be use to continue the five year reintroduction programme on Mana Island and to upgrade the captive breeding aviaries at Pukaha Mount Bruce National Wildlife Centre. Several NZ Art Guild members were involved and one of our members, Sally Blyth, even flew to London to be at the auction.

Over 10,000 Pounds were raised, and there was lots of positive feedback. Here are the prices in pounds that our members artworks got ...

Sally Blyth 1240 !!! What a whopping amount!
Nancy Frazer 420
Tania Verrent 320
Sophia Elise 240
Chavah Kinloch 160
Elspeth Batt 140
Tony Brown 100
