Aftersocks for a cause Helping feet: Mayor Wayne Guppy says the aftersocks are not only for a good cause but are comfortable as well. Photo: ROSEMARY McLENNAN By ROSEMARY McLENNAN Upper Hutt mayor Wayne Guppy has put his foot in it, but it is all for a good cause. The mayor joined his Welling- ton counterpart, Celia Wade- Brown, at the launch last week of aftersocks, a Canterbury earth- quake fundraiser from Rural Women New Zealand. The red and black striped socks, which feature an earthquake shake line, went on sale last week. This is what national disasters do to us, I never thought I would wear Canterbury colours, Mr Guppy says. Any true Hurricane supporter would normally hide them. He paid $20 for his pair and plans to buy more after mayoress Sue Guppy took a shine to his. It s all about the cause and the issues they have. Orders for the New Zealand merino-blend socks have been flooding in from around the world, says Rural Women New Zealand national president Liz Evans, with 1500 pairs sold in three days. The socks are being manufac- tured in Ashburton by a family- owned company, so we re support- ing Canterbury in a very practical way, as well as donating all profits to the Christchurch mayoral fund. Socks can be purchased from aftersocks.co.nz at $20 a pair plus postage and packaging.

The event is a nationwide youth music contest, which has been running for 23 years and features more than 800 bands and artists. About 50 groups from the Wellington region, including about 15 from Lower and Upper Hutt, will be playing in the Welling- ton Town Hall for a spot in the regional final. The winning band or artist will receive a New Zealand on Air recording and music video grant worth $10,000, a place on the New Zealand on Air Kiwi Hit Disc, $10,000 worth of Rockshops music gear and recording time at York St Studio. Other prizes include a Music and Audio Institute of New Zealand Scholarship for outstanding musicianship, the Australasian Performing Rights Associ- ation lyric award and more. Co-founder and director Glenn Common says interest in the event keeps growing because it is all about young people. Where else can teenagers get up in pub- lic and express in their own language, their innermost thoughts about life? The Smokefreerockquest is a household name for discovering new local talent with bands such as Opshop, Minuit, and The Black Seeds all jump-starting their careers at the event. Saturday s show runs from 11am, with the top eight bands called back for a final show at 8pm.
