Sept. 13, 2012 - PRLog -- The Retreat, a venue and accommodation location in the Catlins Otago, was the location for this event, where many local people setup stalls and displays to sell their goods, with the goal of raising enough funds to buy an insulin pump for the child.

The fundraiser was a success and now Hadley has enough to buy his insulin pump.

“This event shows the strong community spirit for this great cause we have here and most importantly we raised enough for little Hadley to get his insulin pump”
Quote from Adele at The Retreat

A number of fun activities such as make overs and massages were also available and many guests took advantage of these throughout the day.

Many different items were for sale including jewellery, children’s toys, clothes, art and makeup.
It was a great day for all involved and shows what can be achieved by many people in the community coming together in one day to help one boy get his insulin pump.
