The November earthquake cost many people their homes and many farmers their livelihoods. We want to help to put a roof back on their heads


As you are well aware of the earthquake that has devastated the South Island of New Zealand. We have created this page to assist one of the fishing family of Kaikoura, our town was hit with a devastating earthquake that has isolated a township with many independent businesses owned an operated by local family's. Due to the road closures our beautiful friendly township will suffer financially with no income to many Families.

this page is to help support the Clark/Riddell family the business was opened in 1977 and has been family operated every since.

it is tough times for many, any support is appreciated very much.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and for your support!!

Before you leave this page please look at the links regarding this beautiful little Crayfish Caravan called Nins Bin and we may see you there one day in the future.

Funds will be used to assist in the rebuild of the iconic Seafood shop called Nins Bin on SH1 north of Kaikoura and to rebuild the house as it is now unlivable.

Hi all, we will come to NZL (from Germany) in February 2017. We also wanted to visit Kaikoura and you. But it will not work out because of the situation. Maybe sometime in the future. Good luck for your families. Best regards ... Werner and Marita

Dear Waiata & Hakiaha, stopping at your place and having the best crayfish ever was one of the best idea we had on our first roadtrip in 2009. We wish you a fast recovery and we send our thoughts from the other end of the world! Merry X-mas from cold Switzerland

Lunch at your caravan was one of the absolute highlights of our trip to New Zealand in February 2016. We hope you are up and running again soon. We expect to be back to see you in 2018. Best wishes from Southern California. Steve and James Rice
