Old girls saying cheers for chairs Fund-raiser: Secretary Angela Fitchett, left, president Virginia Hogarth, treasurer Kathy Cuthbert, Deb Moore and patron Judy Mumm of the Nelson College for Girls Old Girls Association. The association is organising a cocktail evening to raise funds to re-furbish staff assembly chairs. Photo: PATRICK HAMILTON The chairs on which teachers at Nelson College for Girls have sat during assemblies, prize- givings and other functions for decades will have a make-over, thanks to fundraising efforts. The school s Old Girls Association is holding a cocktail evening at Fair- field House on October 18 to raise the thousands of dollars needed to re-cover and repair the old chairs. Secretary Angela Fitchett said the cause was the association s main fundraising drive for the year. It was also a fitting project because it was the school s 130th anniversary this year. Angela said the 36 chairs were donated to the college for its 75th anniversary in 1958, and were 55 years old. They had been imported from Europe in parts and assembled by a Nelson cabinet-maker. Attempts to find the name of the Nelson trades- man had not been successful. The chairs were donated to the school by the PTA, and a piano from Vienna was also presented to the school. Angela said the chairs were there- fore an important part of the school s history and students who had been to the school would remember them. The cocktail evening was to sup- port their renovation and music would be provided by students at the school. It was estimated the cost of fixing the chairs would be between $3500 and $5000. Tickets to the cocktail evening are limited and cost $45. They are available from the school's reception or at Contexo at 26 Tipahi St, ph 546 6394. The cocktail evening is from 6pm to 8.30pm on October 18.
