Raising much needed funds for the North Canterbury Rural Support Trust.

We all have different abilities and life challenges, but sometimes someone lending a hand can make the world of difference, I passionately believe that, I am also passionate about making change in the rural community. I am a rural agent for Bayleys Canterbury and on Thursday the 10th of June I’m going to run 100km in Redband gumboots through North Canterbury to raise as much money as I can for the North Canterbury Rural Support Trust, who directly engages with our rural community helping farmers who are in a bad patch. Farming can be an extremely difficult job at times and the suicide rate for farmers is 1.5 times the New Zealand average, so they need all the support we can give them.

George Black's involvement (page creator)

As someone who makes their living from the agriculture sector, I believe it is important to give back.

Use of funds

Helping is easier than you think! Every dollar you give will goes directly to the North Canterbury Rural Support Trust.
