The event, which ran over two weekends in July, received a large influx of books on the final day -- enough to open the doors again at Tawa Junction, Tawa Rotary president Laura Sommer says. More than $22,000 was raised last month for Life Education Trust, with funds also going towards water tanks and better toilet facilities at a primary school in Tonga, and student trips over- seas or Outward Bound. We re extremely pleased with the large number of high-quality books that were donated. This, coupled with a tremendous amount of work that went on in the background from our members and others who helped us, meant we had two very well-organised weekends, Ms Sommer said. Sixty boxes of books will be donated to a library being set up in Zimbabwe to benefit 5000 children in 10 primary schools. Porirua's own fairies Dynamic trio: Lorraine Gray, Stephanie Drew and Barbara Hefford, the creative talent behind the Porirua-published children's book The Kowhai Fairy. By KRIS DANDO Lorraine Gray says she still believes in fairies. Her children s book The Kowhai Fairy, illustrated by fellow Porirua resident Bar- bara Hefford, was launched at Summerset at Aotea last week. Another celebration fol- lowed on Saturday at St Andrew s Church in Plimmer- ton, with plenty of fairy cos- tumes, music and face- painting. Ms Gray, who grew up in New Plymouth, says her grandmother s garden was a magical place during her childhood and inspired her to pen The Kowhai Fairy. I can remember sitting under a big tree, wanting to catch a fairy in a matchbox. I m sure they were around in this place, full of trees and flowers. I was an early childhood teacher for many years and if you read them a story with some real life to it, you can make their faces light up. I just hope children will enjoy the story, I certainly enjoyed writing it. Ms Gray has had poems and short stories published before, but releasing a children s book was on her bucket list. An initial run of 100 has been doubled due to demand -- and this is before outlets like Paper Plus have begun stock- ing it. She hopes it will get a wider release in time, too. Ms Gray approached local designer Stephanie Drew late last year to put the project together. The story was written 12 years ago but refining it has proved quite a challenge, she says. Illustrator Ms Hefford is Ms Drew s mother so it has been very much a Porirua-based project. I had a lot of fun drawing the butterflies and fairies, I haven t drawn anything like this for many years, Ms Hef- ford says. I had to go away and find out what a kowhai tree and a tamarillo tree look like -- there was a lot of variety and chal- lenge in doing this. Ms Gray says she delib- rately left the story s ending open-ended, as she still believes fairies are out there. Email Stephanie@drew.co.nz to purchase a copy for $15.
