KINDLING FUNDRAISER
My sons are off to Australia with their Shirley Boys High cricket team in September and I am making them raise half the cost of their trip.

$10 per box.

We can deliver 6 boxes or more for free within the Chch area (at a time that suits)

Kindling can also be picked up from either Burwood or Harewood (Near Bishopdale)

For any elderly people living in the Brighton area (or nearish to Burwood rd) we will happily deliver a single box if that is all you need as we have had a few elderly men and woman whom aren't able to get out and don't require 6 boxes. We would rather drop a box off to you than you be cold.

They have sold a lot to very happy people but still have boxes left.

Price: $10
