BROKEN WINGS: Vandals damage artwork which helps cancer sufferers.

Vandals have damaged the If We All Had Wings cancer awareness artwork in Wauchope.

They’ve broken part of the children’s set of wings at the side of the Hastings Co-op in Bransdon Street where kids and adults get their photos taken.

Cancer survivor Skye Petho said she’d paid an artist to create that work, to raise awareness of something that is a sad situation – people struggling financially when they have cancer. 

“Whoever did this is being disrespectful towards people with cancer and towards the community in Wauchope.” she said. 

A spokesman for Hastings Co-op said they too were very disappointed in the vandalism and hoped to work with Skye to replace the piece.

Vandals also smashed a mosaic bench made by disabled people at the Wauchope arts hall beside Bain Park.
