Never in a million years (minion years?) did Hamish Lile and his family ever dream painting a couple of hay bales to look like minions would go viral on social media.
After being inundated with people wanting to have their photos taken with the hay bales named Kevin, Stuart and Bob (the little one made out of a drum), the family decided to use this as an opportunity to raise money for the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
If you want to have your photo taken with the Minions, leave a donation. Once you’ve done that, upload your photos to the Philips Search and Rescue Trust’s Facebook page and you’ll go into the draw to win a nights accommodation at the Clarion Suites in Hamilton for two people with a dinner, a buffet breakfast and a tour of the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter hangar.
To donate click here or drop your donation in at the Te Awamutu Courier, located at 97 Sloane St, Te Awamutu.
Kevin, Stuart and Bob will be at the corner of Cambridge Rd and Puahue Rd until the end of the week, and you have until Sunday midnight to post your photos to Facebook.
