Staying in town this Show weekend? Come on down to the Demolition Art Exhibition in the old Presbyterian Support building at 44 Bealey Ave. Local volunteer artists have created unique art works inside the building (next to Knox Church).

Each artwork is inspired by Presbyterian Support social services, and our mission to support children, youth, families, and older people to become safe, strong, and connected.

This is a one-time opportunity to see and enjoy these special art works drawn for a good cause. With a fundraiser sausage sizzle and special “Monster” treasure hunt, it will be good fun for kids too. We hope to see you there!

Entry by donation, or order a copy of our Demolition Art 2018 calendar here: www.trademe.co.nz....
