Masked in charity


Here’s a chance to own a piece of New Zealand history, commemorat­e 2020 and support charity all in one. The Rangiora Lions Club, in North Canterbury, is auctioning on TradeMe two framed face masks signed by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and director-general of health Dr Ashley Bloomfield. The masks feature phrases commonly uttered at the daily 1pm Covid-19 briefings: ‘‘Be kind’’ and ‘‘Kia ora koutou katoa’’. All proceeds will go to Blind LowVision NZ, formerly known as the Blind Foundation.
