An auc­tioned set of Tom Scott draw­ings raised $1325 which will con­trib­ute to a court ap­peal by Child Poverty Ac­tion Group. The Auck­land City Har­bour News Au­gust 24 story re­ported the Scott trip­tych was be­ing auc­tioned on Trade Me to help fund the group’s case against Work­ing For Fam­i­lies leg­is­la­tion. The group claims the in-work tax credit is dis­crim­i­na­tory be­cause it is not paid to par­ents on a ben­e­fit. The auc­tioned draw­ings fea­tured on the con­tro­ver­sial doc­u­men­tary Inside Child Poverty by Bryan Bruce. The group es­ti­mates it needs to raise $70,000 to take its case through the Court of Ap­peal, and on to the Supreme Court if need be. It has raised about $25,000 so far.
