Yesterday Aquarius donated 12 beds to the cyclone appeal committee, which handed the bunks over to Red Cross to be distributed in Aitutaki.
Six bunks, or 12 beds, six mattresses and 12 pillows were loaded on to a truck yester- day and transported to Red Cross.
Louise Buckley of Aquarius said that unfortunately, six mattresses that were part of the donation were pinched from their container.
Red Cross director Niki Rattle said that the bunks will be a nice addition to the donation package of leftover PMG bunks that government is gifting to Aitutaki.
The Aquarius bunks will be on the next ship to Aitutaki.
