City Mission Lunch Benefits From Contractors’ Generosity
Media Release – 21 December 2013
City Mission Lunch Benefits From
The winner of the
signed replica 2011 Rugby World Cup All Black jersey will be
handing $2830 over to the Christchurch City Mission today,
which will make the annual Christmas Lunch extra special.
Pace Project Management was the eventual winner of the
auction, after a short bidding frenzy.
In the Christmas
spirit, TradeMe waived its usual fees to ensure all of the
funds go directly to the Mission and the Press donated $300.
The efforts of several other city contractors, Wards
Demolition, Protranz Earthmoving, Nikau and Ceres
Environmental, were also appreciated by the City Mission,
with their Dress Up Your Digger contest attracting many
donations of fresh food for the Christmas lunch.
Crane and Construction donated several hams and sacks of
potatoes for the annual lunch event.
The City Mission on
Hereford Street will be open to receive donations of food
over the weekend, between the hours of 10am and 4pm.
