Donating to earthquake relief

CD CanterburyIt’s heartening to see so many people help their loved ones, neighbours, friends and others during this difficult time.

We know that many more people are eager to help but we would like to remind everyone that money donations are now preferred to goods.

The public is welcome to donate money to one of the two Mayoral Welfare Funds managed by the Hurunui and Kaikoura District councils.

The bank account numbers are: 03 – 0802 – 0946666 – 02 (Hurunui) and 02 – 0865 – 0011 698 – 083 (Kaikoura).

You are also encouraged to donate to other relief appeals instead of donating goods or offering other forms of assistance.
