Canstruction® Christchurch gnomes painted by Crusader players

The Crusaders and the humble garden gnome joined forces to assist with the Christchurch City Mission’s new can collection initiative, ‘Canstruction® Christchurch’. The Crusaders squad recently swapped rugby balls for paint brushes and Resene paint to create some gnome masterpieces that were auctioned off as part of the Canstruction® Christchurch event.

Canstruction® is an international non-profit organisation that has introduced fun can collection events in over 215 cities worldwide. Christchurch’s inaugural Canstruction® design and build competition saw teams create massive 3D structures at this year’s Ellerslie International Flower Show out of canned food, which were then donated to the Christchurch City Mission. The theme for this year’s event was “In Our Backyard”, which is where the garden gnome comes in.

The Christchurch City Mission Foodbank provides over 26,000 food packages per year to members of the local
community; and donations of canned food are essential to the operation of this service. The Canstruction® Christchurch event aimed to help generate increased awareness and resulted in more donations than ever before so that they can continue to lend a supporting hand to those in our community who most need it.
