This image was taken (but not used) for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on Monday 29th June 1981.

Mike Moore was the Member of Parliament for Papanui in 1981. He became New Zealand's 34th Prime Minister in 1990 after contesting the Labour Party leadership, rolling Geoffrey Palmer a few months before the General Election.

Telethon 1981 was for the International Year of Disabled Persons. Telethon was a 24-hour live television spectacular designed to raise money for charitable causes. It originated in the United States, but New Zealand put a typically Kiwi spin on the event. Local performers, amateur and professional were joined by international stars, who entertained New Zealand to raise money for charity. Groups of people from schools, clubs, and pubs, contributed cash and cheques, often in an oversized format, to add to the pledged totals on the day of the event.
