The Grey District Council is deeply saddened by the events that have unfolded in the wake of the Pike River Mine explosion.
Now more than ever is the time for the community to stand behind these families so deeply affected. Council is assisting in setting up the PIKE RIVER MINERS RELIEF FUND TRUST in order to offer the financial support required now and going forward.
The Trust will have representation from multiple support agencies involved in the response.
Donations can be made at any Westpac branch, or sent care of the Grey District Council.
Advertising will also commence shortly on other ways to make donations
Telecom, Vodaphone and 2 Degree customers can text 306 to make an automatic $3 donation.
