New Zealand Earthquake Appeal

You will remember that, at the beginning of March, I began a fundraiser raising money for the NZ earthquake appeal. Well, as things turned out, raising the money was the easy bit. Getting it to New Zealand so that my friend’s bank (ANZ) could double the amount raised before it went to the Red Cross […]

A Long Week

It is a week since the devastating earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand. My thoughts continue to be with all those affected by this event.

New Zealand Earthquake Fundraiser
