The Southland Charity Hospital last week launched its "Buy a brick campaign".

It gives members of the public the opportunity to help the charity by buying a brick and having their names engraved.

The bricks would be used to pave a pathway from the hospital.

The idea came after a statement from the late Blair Vining who believed if everybody in the South bought a brick, together they could build a hospital.

Individual supporter bricks cost $100 and commemorative plaques are available from $500.
