WELLINGTON - New Zealand prime minister John Key has raised about R90000 for charity by selling on an Internet auction a plaster cast that helped to mend his broken arm.
The funds will be donated to The Fred Hollows Foundation, which operates blindness-prevention programmes in the Solomon Islands.
"I was very surprised it got to that . but I am delighted," Key said yesterday.
Key broke his arm when he fell at a function in Auckland on January 17.
During a later trip to Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands, the cast was signed by several dignitaries.
At the suggestion of officers of the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands, Key agreed to auction the cast to raise funds for the foundation. - Sapa
