"Monsters in Canterbury" charity show returns to Christchurch to entertain children of all ages.

Newstalk ZB host and professional puppeteer Chris Lynch says he’s delighted to perform his puppet show for charity.

"Monsters in Canterbury" is supported by Ibis and Novotel Christchurch and proceeds will go to Cure Kids, a charity which raises funds to enable high-impact medical research to help save, extend and improve the lives of children.

Last year, Lynch, a former Disney puppeteer, performed his puppets in front of hundreds of children in Fiji, assisting Red Cross with its psychosocial recovery programme for children affected by Cyclone Winston.

Cure Kids has invested nearly $40 million in research helping children with serious illness.

Monsters in Canterbury takes places at the Transitional Cathedral on Thursday 20th July at 2pm.
