Choco­late for char­ity

The foil wrap­pers ripped off in haste to get to the choco­late within are about to hit the run­way and all for a good cause. As part of the Dunedin Cad­bury Choco­late Car­ni­val, wear­able art made with Cad­bury foils will take cen­tre stage on July 23 to raise funds for Te Whare Pounamu Dunedin Women’s Refuge. The open cat­e­gory for in­di­vid­u­als and fam­i­lies and the fash­ion stu­dent cat­e­gory will be judged by a panel that in­cludes Margi Robert­son from Nom*D, while the pub­lic can vote in the Peo­ple’s Choice award on the Cad­bury New Zealand Face­book page af­ter en­tries close on July 12.
