The Mrs Chippy Project placed a life sized bronze statute of Harry McNeish's cat 'Mrs Chippy' on his owner's grave and will also carryout needed restoration work on the grave and headstone.
In suport of the Mrs Chippy project the Wellington branch brought out to New Zealand, George Butler's film The Endurance. The film was shown at the Soundings Theature, Te Papa on Saturdaay 26 June 2004.
Thanks to the waving of screening royalties, advertising sponsorship from Dominion Post we were able to rasie additional funds to cover the costs of making and afixing Mrs Chippy to Harry McNeish's grave. The proceeds from the screening together with donations from individuals enabled the successful completeion of this project.
