Earthquake Award for St Stephen’s

Here’s the Christchurch Earthquake Civic Award that I received tonight on behalf of St Stephen’s for their post-earthquake work including the red zone community food voucher fundraiser we established and dispersed with the help of people from St Giles & St Marks.  A big thanks to all those around ChCh, NZ, and overseas who contributed to the project of 15 months ago, and especially the people from the three churches here who walked out the $96,000 donated, most of which was turned into New World Supermarket vouchers which made some people’s lives just a little bit easier.  The evening was at times very moving with a huge variety of individuals and groups receiving awards.  It was great to see a number of MPs and City Councillors along as well, including my colleague Cr Glenn Livingstone.
