Candlelight Vigil 29 April 2015
Despite the stall at Westfield Riccarton currently being on hold until Friday, the effort towards raising money for the victims have continued. The Give a Little link is fast approaching $30,000 thanks to the current 407 generous donors. Other stalls have also even increased in funds raised from the past few days.
In addition to the current fundraising efforts, there will also be a solidarity event this Friday to make a statement standing together for those in Nepal. As there are many locals that have a strong connection to Nepal, the past week has proved to be difficult. Christchurch City Council has given their full support in helping aid the victims:
"There will also be an opportunity for Christchurch residents to stand side-by-side in solidarity with our local Nepalese community who are holding a candlelight vigil on Friday 1 May at 6.30pm in Victoria Square." - Christchurch City Council
We encourage you to attend and continue the generous support that has already been shown.
