How Ashburton residents can support Trev's BBQ Kaikoura Earthquake Relief

15/11/2016 3:00 p.m.

Ashburton District Mayor Donna Favel is supporting the earthquake relief drive of Trev’s BBQ Kaikoura Earthquake Relief and is encouraging Ashburton residents to donate to this worthy cause.

Trevor Hurley coordinated Trev’s BBQ for the Christchurch earthquake in 2011, and he is in full swing again to do it for Kaikoura earthquake victims.  Having learnt how to make things happen quickly, Trevor has organised flights in and out of Kaikoura to deliver donated goods for dispersal within Kaikoura. He has done this with the help of Terry Hewett from the Mid Canterbury Aeroclub and the Ashburton Aviation Museum.

Ashburton residents can help by donating non-perishable food items and toiletries to collections bins at Countdown and New World supermarkets.  Alternatively, cash donations can be made directly to the non-profit release fund at Westpac Bank ac#03-0835-0023227-000 set up by Corey Accountants.  All donations to the Kaikoura Earthquake Relief Fund will be to support the air flights to and from Kaikoura and are the preferred donation needed to support Trev’s BBQ Kaikoura.

Mayor Donna Favel supports the work that Trevor is doing and encourages all residents to show their support for the earthquake relief for our Cantabrian neighbours.

“The people of Ashburton District are known for their generosity and we know full well how difficult it is in the early days after the earthquakes. By getting behind Trev’s BBQ Kaikoura we can do our bit to help our friends in the North during this difficult time,” she says, adding, “Trevor is doing a brilliant job of rallying around just making things happen to get help to those most in need.”

Trevor and his team plans to deliver donated goods up to three times a day until the donations run out.
