$100,000 from Harveys Helps Cystic Fibrosis Achieve Significant Results


Harveys Real Estate has lifted their contribution to Cystic Fibrosis past the $100,000 mark, after presenting a cheque for $25,000 at the recent Harveys Half Yearly Awards in Auckland.

Since stepping in as the principal sponsor of the Cystic Fibrosis Association of New Zealand last September, Harveys has helped the charity achieve some significant outcomes.

Harveys’ contributions have enabled the Association to hire a national social worker and helped the charity to also engage a fundraising assistant. The money raised has also gone towards the many programmes offered by the Association for families affected by Cystic Fibrosis, including funding tertiary education.

Chief Executive of the Cystic Fibrosis Association of New Zealand, Kate Russell says “we are just so delighted to have a sponsor who has whole heartedly taken on the cause. So many connections have been made between the people of the Cystic Fibrosis Association and Harveys,” she says.

During the year Harveys’ offices throughout the country helped to raise money for the cause through many initiatives, including sausage sizzles and street auctions, as well as helping the Association during their annual appeal. Many offices went the extra mile, with special events aimed at raising money for the charity. “If you look back over the year, it’s amazing all the things Harveys have been a part of,” says Mrs Russell.

Cystic Fibrosis is the most common life threatening condition in New Zealand. It is an inherited disorder that affects people in various ways, but most frequently causes irreversible lung damage. There is currently no known cure and the average life expectancy for a person with Cystic Fibrosis in New Zealand is 29 years.

Harveys Director, Ross Hunter says “Harveys’ offices throughout the country have pulled together with great enthusiasm to generate some positive outcomes for the Cystic Fibrosis Association. We look forward to continuing our support next year.”
