New lease on life for an old lady

The NZ Historic Places Trust are doing up Alberton in Mt. Albert so that the old mansion continues her journey through time, according to today's NZ Herald.

The Trust are staging a fundraising appeal right now. The following is from their August newsletter:
"Our fundraising appeal was launched recently and we are happy to reassure everyone that all income received from donations goes towards our critically important work of identifying, protecting, preserving and conserving the historic and cultural heritage of New Zealand.

In the letter we sent out, we explained how important it is that we make sure our past is protected, and we highlighted the substantial work being done at Alberton (rotten veranda post pictured).

To say thank you to donors who support our cause by 30 August 2009, we will send a free entrance voucher for two people to one of 14 New Zealand Historic Places Trust Properties.

If you haven’t received an appeal letter and would like to donate, you can do so on our website at www.historic.org.nz; or by ringing 0800 802 010 to make a telephone donation; or else post your donation to Freepost 3206, New Zealand Historic Places Trust, PO Box 2629, Wellington."
