From my daughter, Claudia (6 years old) –

"I went last Sunday to our Timaru Farmers Market to sell rubber balls I made to give money to help with the Christchurch Earthquake. Lots of people bought them and this week I made some pens and animals and my friends Loganne and Milly came with me and made balls and animals and we sold them too.

I love going to the Farmers Market because I see lots of my friends there to play with. There is really yummy food . I had a muffin and some apple juice and an ice cream and some fudge. Everyone is really friendly and we went round to ask everyone to buy things from us and we sold HEAPS. Some other kids came and joined us and made things too.

Oscar, my brother, came with us today and helped making apple juice. People bring apples from their trees and Oscar was asked to help with lots of other kids. He got given a great big chopper on a handle and then they put the apples into a barrel which squeezes the juice out. Anyone can buy a glass for 50 cents... it was really yummy. We stayed for the whole morning. I want to go every Sunday and Oscar does too."
