YOUNG ARTISTS: Hunter Smith, 3, Eva-Rose Smith, 4, Toby Cochrane, 4, and Ruby Moore, 3, show off Beautiful Life,
one of three pieces Whippersnappers pre-school have created to help raise funds.
WHEN MOTHERS who work at
the Sigri coffee plantation in
Papua New Guinea were asked
what would be the most beneficial
thing to help in their daily lives,
they said a creche.
So the children from pre-schools
in Lincoln and its surrounds have
been working hard to help make
the wish of those mothers come
Coffee Culture Lincoln owner
Chrissy Patridge has organised an
art auction with a difference to
raise money to get the project
I thought because we were try-
ing to help pre-school children
over there, why not get the help of
the wonderful children from this
area to assist.
Children from Lincoln
Playcentre, Lincoln Kindergarten,
Childcare and Preschool, LUECC,
Melodies and Jigsaw Preschool
have been creating beautiful art
pieces which will be auctioned at
the Lincoln Events Centre on
Friday evening between 5.30pm
You can tell with all
the art work that has been
donated a lot of thought and hard
work has gone in to create these
The whole community has jum-
ped on board, which has been
really amazing for us.
We re just so delighted that
everyone sees the real value in
being able to provide this for these
mothers and children.
Twenty-two works of art,
including one donated by fourth-
year art student Jemma Eilken,
will be auctioned off.
The art work will be on display
at the Lincoln Events Centre and
Lincoln Coffee Culture leading up
to the auction.
For its first two years, the
Coffee Culture Foundation
supported high school students
locally with scholarships, but this
year it decided to look further
afield to help those who need it
Ms Patridge said most of the
green beans that make up the
company s brew are sourced from
Papua New Guinea, so two Coffee
Culture representatives went to
the plantations to find out what
those working in the fields would
The mothers often have babies
swaddled to their backs, so said a
creche would be the best option.
The foundation hopes to raise
$40,000 nationally to build the
Organisers scare up a pre-school category
of the Lincoln
Farmers and Craft
Market are hoping
for even bigger, and
than last year.
LINCOLN FARMERS and Craft Market have
announced a new category to allow all ages to enter
its annual Scarecrow Saturday free community event
on September 7.
This year a pre-school category has been added.
Other categories include corporate, school and com-
munity groups, plus individual entries from adults
There will be live music, fresh local produce, bak-
ing and unique hand-crafted gifts for sale.
Anybody can enter the scarecrow competition on
the day. Entries must be at least one metre high and
