A useful gift idea

If you’d like to gift something to friends and family they’ll definitely use while simultaneously helping other Bay families in their time of need – Waipuna Hospice has just the thing.

The hospice’s newly designed 2015 tea towel has been launched – this year the quail is featured thanks to local artist Mandy Williams – and there’s a whopping 3000 printed.

Waipuna Hospice fundraising manager Trish Rae says after selling 1500 units last Christmas, this year she’s cranked up the production line yet again.

“Mandy has generously donated her artwork and helped in the design process; this year’s design features a rather gorgeous and chubby quail,” says Trish.

The high quality 100 per cent cotton tea towels, printed here in Tauranga, are individually packaged with an attractive label, says Trish. “And they are gorgeous.”

“They are pretty and affordable and are perfect for an elegant birthday present, thank you or Christmas gift; and easy to pop in the post.”

Mandy generously lent her design for the tea towel, which Trish says suits hospice’s rural environment. “It’s just something that’s really nice but you’re not breaking the budget.

“And it’s something that will always get used – a tea towel doesn’t go amiss.”

The tea towels are on sale at Waipuna Hospice, their four Hospice Shops and selected retailers in Tauranga, Te Puna and Mount Maunganui. Check the hospice website for stockists.
