Casks painted for charity

The trio are among seven artists who were each asked to put their own stamp on wine barrels, which will be auctioned off online, beginning tonight, as part of the Arrowtown Autumn Festival.

All proceeds from the sales of the barrels will go to the Wakatipu Greatest Needs Fund, a charity established last year to fund the gaps in government welfare assistance.

The decorated barrels are all on display at the Lakes District Museum and will be auctioned off online.
