Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Auck­land res­i­dents can do­nate en­graved rocks for a me­mo­rial cairn to Sir Ed­mund Hil­lary.

The cairn will be based at the Sir Ed­mund Hil­lary Out­door Pur­suits Cen­tre of New Zealand at Ton­gariro near Mt Ruapehu.

Many rocks will be col­lected dur­ing the Sum­mits for Ed tour which ends in Cape Reinga on April 19.

Cen­tral Auck­lan­ders want­ing to par­ti­ci­c­pate can join a num­ber of lo­cal schools which will meet at the Archery Club carpark at One Tree Hill at 4.30pm on Satur­day.

Rocks should be no larger than an A4 sheet of pa­per and should be smooth, with a flat side for en­grav­ing.

Li­ons Club mem­bers will also be on hand to ac­cept do­na­tions to the Sir Ed­mund Hil­lary Foun­da­tion.
