Red Cross are holding our annual Mistletoe Market at Toitoi from 2-8 pm, this event will be a great place to start and finish your Christmas shopping, all while supporting the New Zealand Red Cross. We will have local stallholders on-site with their handmade items for sale and a number of other exciting activities such as donut decorating with Mamas Donuts and more.
Entry to the Market is with a gold coin. All proceeds from this event will go to the New Zealand Red Cross.
This year we are also excited to be holding the Red Cross Upcycle Challenge, there are 3 different challenges each with a prize of $250 in the form of a prezzy card. These challenges are to encourage people to reuse, recycle and repurpose items found at our Red Cross Shops and Curtain Bank and let their creativity shine. The challenges are as follows..
- The HB Curtain Bank Challenge – Sponsored by Kathys Drapes by Design - Create a fashion item from a previously loved curtain.
- The Red Cross Retail Challenge – Sponsored by Tammy Jensen, Harcourts - Purchase an item from one of the Red Cross Shops and upcycle it.
- The Art Upcycle Challenge – Sponsored by The Red Cross Shop – Cadbury Road - Give old art new life by adding to the image or the frame.
The Challenges are all open now and close on Friday 20th November and you can enter as many times as you like. The winners will be announced at the Mistletoe Market on the 26th of November.
