We were honoured to be part of the Royal fever that gripped Wellington recently. RWNZ member, Justine Ottey, the originator of our Canterbury earthquake Aftersocks™ fundraiser, joined a select group at Government House for afternoon tea with the Duchess of Cornwall.
Rural Women New Zealand had sent two pairs of Aftersocks™ to Government House to give to the Royal couple.
Justine Ottey said, “Prince Charles is well known as a champion of the wool industry, so it was great to be able to tell the Duchess that the socks were made from New Zealand merino wool.”
This is an exciting culmination to the Aftersocks™ journey. RWNZ national president, Liz Evans, said “Our socks have received national and international acclaim and now they will be warming Royal feet.”
The project will close 31 December with a limited numbers of socks still available.
