The Rotary Club of Courtenay Place in conjunction with The Breeze proudly presents the 8th annual Big Dig, taking place at Oriental Parade on Saturday 11 February 2012.

The annual event is a fundraiser for the Child Cancer Foundation and has proved to be a huge crowd pleaser in the past, drawing hundreds of children and their families to dig in the sands of Oriental Parade for various prizes.

Last year, the fundraiser drew approximately 650 children and entries, raising significant funds for Child Cancer.

This year, the Rotary Club of Courtenay Place is aiming to draw entries, with prizes ranging from bikes, toys, sporting goods and books to DVD players, valuable vouchers and many other prizes.

"At this time of the year who couldn't ask for a better event in Wellington," says Child Cancer central North Island fundraising and business development manager, Scott Lancaster. "It combines both sand and families having fun, and the community just love it - the organisation loves it. [Child Cancer] loves its association with Rotary –-they really understand what we are about and we’re really delighted about the day."

The Breeze radio station will be on site to promote the event with music and a sausage sizzle.

Entry is $5 for all ages.
