Media Release - from family of Donna Manning (CTV)


Press Release from Maurice Gardiner
(brother of Donna Manning of CTV)


It has been one week since the 6.3 earthquake hit Christchurch and as we observe 2 minutes silence today our hearts go out to all of Christchurch, especially those who, like us, are still waiting for news of loved ones.

We are still waiting for news of our sister Donna (Manning) and holding onto hope that she will be returned to us. While we wait, we pray for strength, especially for our parents and Donna’s children, Elizabeth and Kent Manning.

I want to thank everyone who has shown such love and support - there has been so much from near and far away.

As a lot of you have requested, today we are releasing the details of the Trust we have set up for Donna’s children.

You can make a donation at any Kiwibank.

The Elizabeth and Kent Manning Trust
38 9011 0430699 000
