A group of South Canterbury residents is inviting people to give homemade baking and cards to storm-battered West Coast residents.
Organiser Fiona Elworthy said the “Cakes and Cards for the Coast” donations would be given to West Coast residents after ex-cyclone Fehi wreaked havoc on the west side of the Southern Alps earlier this month.
The group of supporters – including Warwick and Jenny Smith and Sonia Henare – would collect the donations before organising transportation and distribution of the goods early next month, she said.
“[We] are inviting compassionate people .. to donate homemade cakes or other baking and a signed card [for] .. our neighbours over the Southern Alps.”
A collection depot for baked goods and cards had been set up in St Mary’s Church hall, 22 Church St, Timaru.
