It is hoped a huge cardboard tube which has travelled from Christchurch will raise people's awareness of a fundraising project for the Transitional "Cardboard" Cathedral.

The 16.5 metre tube is at Parnell's Holy Trinity Cathedral until December 7. It is one of four on display in cathedrals around the country.

People who visit will be able to view the structure, learn about the Transitional Cathedral project and make a donation.

The tubes are made up of three 5.5 metre tubes that are joined in the same way as they will appear in the Transitional Cathedral. It has been designed by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban and is due for completion in April.

Dean of Auckland Jo Kelly-Moore says: "This is an exciting way to get an idea of what's going on in Christchurch and we hope it will encourage Aucklanders to support the building of the Transitional Cathedral."

ChristChurch Cathedral spokesman Rev Craig Dixon says: "We're excited to share this unique project, which has caught the attention of cities around the world."
