Queenstown Plunket members (from left) administrator Ella
Wilson, mother Meronea Nathan, Tamaraukura Watson (2), Ryley
Fish (3) and receptionist Belinda Ricketts gratefully accept a
cheque for $2150 from barman Jeremy Wynyard at Minus 5 Ice Bar
on Steamer Wharf yesterday.
The funds were raised from hundreds of people entering the
Santa's Grotto in the ice bar over five days before
Christmas. The total was $150 more than the amount raised by
the inaugural grotto in 2011. The money will be put towards
the $40,000 landscaping work at the Plunket centre.
