Auc­tion to find a cure

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

JOHN Kir­win-Ward has been a long-time sup­porter of Con­quer Cys­tic Fi­bro­sis but his lat­est pro­ject could ben­e­fit any child.

Mr Kir­win-Ward, whose grand­daugh­ter Kaila has cys­tic fi­bro­sis, has hand­crafted a child’s play kitchen for WA or­gan­i­sa­tion Con­quer Cys­tic Fi­bro­sis to auc­tion and raise money to help find a cure for the ill­ness.

The toy has been fash­ioned from an old tele­vi­sion cab­i­net and other up­cy­cled house­hold ma­te­ri­als.

“We’re thrilled to have been given this most amaz­ing kid's play kitchen to auc­tion for Con­quer Cys­tic Fi­bro­sis,” com­mit­tee mem­ber Su­san An­drews said.

“The at­ten­tion to de­tail is in­cred­i­ble – from the CD ‘hot­plates’ to the sil­ver painted mi­crowave and the ging­ham apron.

“This is a dream come true for any bud­ding chef or any child who just likes to play grown up.”

Ms An­drews said the play kitchen could suit a play­group, kindy, cafe, com­mu­nity cen­tre or a lucky child's bed­room.

Money raised by Con­quer Cys­tic Fi­bro­sis is do­nated to re­search and ser­vices.
