The Malaysia NZ Chamber of Commerce chairman Richard Tankersley was to meet UC Vice-Chancellor Dr Rod Carr and the UC Muslim Students Association on campus today. UC Alumni and Development manager Graeme Steven said the Malaysia NZ Chamber of Commerce is also donating to the Christchurch Cathedral and the Arts Centre.
