After being back on the island for a week, Creative Trail fundraiser James Talbot is eager to get the ball rolling again.


Endurance walker Talbot is encouraging those hoping to contribute towards the Creative Centre to lend a hand to a group of adults who will benefit from the full time care requirements at the centre – the respite care units.

This week, Talbot bumped into Agnes Armstrong and Emmy Koteka-Wiki who acknowledged Talbot for his initiative of raising funds for the centre.

Armstrong and Koteka-Wiki, including the Sword family, gave a donation towards the fundraiser.

At the Punanga Nui market, the Creative Centre hut has received $300 in donations so far,  with others donating after Talbot’s walk.

The Creative Trail Givealittle page has now hit $24,120.

Meanwhile, Talbot says since his return, his body and mind have finally got use to the weather. The heat in Rarotonga is better than the cold in New Zealand.

“I am still chipping away at sorting my journals, pictures and videos and organising a fundraising event to help boost the give little funds.”

The walk is over but the fundraising continues till the end of July so if you haven’t yet or wish to contribute again here is the link:


Or you can deposit into ANZ acc# 410744 Creative Trail Feb 2019 and they will make the donation for you.
