Neptune has a purpose, and it is to raise funds for the local Little Harbour children's hospice. Picture takers are asked to pop some money in a box for the charity.
If you are in Charlestown and snap a photo, please leave a few coins to help terminally ill children. This is a genuine charity and one I donate to personally. I look at my young grandchildren, who are healthy and robust, and realise how lucky I am.
The carving has weathered since I snapped these photos.
