Kaikoura earthquake fundraiser

The staff and residents of Essie Summers were saddened to hear of the struggles the people and community of Kaikoura are facing post early morning earthquake on November 19th 2016.

A lot of ideas on what we could do to help Kaikoura all flooded in, but we were told the people of Kaikoura needed basic food supplies as their food shortage at their local supermarket was scarce due to the road where supplies are delivered had to be closed for safety concerns.

Our receptionist Anna decided to send out a message to all stuff to bring along any non-perish food items to go to the families of kaikoura currently going through this hard time.

The response from staff, residents/relatives was huge and heart-warming to see.

The Essie Summers family just wanted to let them know that we are thinking of them and wish nothing but love, strength and positive vibes.

To also add to the relief a hamper raffle was run and we managed to fundraise just over $400.
