Ronda Turk:  Artist, Mother and Tramper

"No one ever wants to use a rescue service, but on the 12th of September my daughter - who lives in Ōtaki - needed just that.


An experienced tramper, she set out in fine conditions to walk the Jumbo Circuit on the Wairarapa side of the Tararua Ranges.  At Mt Holdsworth she was suddenly trapped by high winds on the ridge between Jumbo Hut and Powell Hut.


She was alone and stranded at 1400 meters altitude, unable to continue in the prevailing rain and wind conditions.


Repeatedly blown off the track, unable to even crawl, she laid for hours in her sleeping bag, waiting for help to arrive.  The wind chill factor was minus 5 degrees celsius.


New Zealand Land Search and Rescue Inc (LandSAR) is the national volunteer organisation providing land search and rescue services to the Police and to the public of New Zealand.


How does a mother repay such committed and brave volunteers?


My solution, as an artist - and with the generous help of Ōtaki's Artel Gallery - is to sell a selection of my paintings.


100% of my proceeds will be donated to Wairarapa Search and Rescue.


Volunteers from LandSAR saved my daughter's life".
