Project Lyttelton and the Canterbury Earthquakes

Project Lyttelton Earthquake Fund

Project Lyttelton's Earthquake Fund

Since the earthquakes many people have shown their compassion and support for our community by donating money to a number of community groups within Lyttelton. A donate button on the Project Lyttelton website and some other really generous donors who gave money directly to our organisation has meant that Project Lyttelton is in the position to create the Project Lyttelton Earthquake Fund. Our community, consisting of community groups and individuals from  Lyttelton, Corsair Bay, Cass Bay and Rapaki are eligible to apply.

After several community meetings a diverse group of residents offered to be on the committee to assess the applications. The committee consists of Andrew Turner, Wendy Everingham, Liza Rossie, Ray Blake, Paula Smith, Christine Wilson and Margaret Jefferies.The committee will meet every month on the first Wednesday and grants will be ratified and announced at the following Project Lyttelton Board meeting, the second Thursday of the month.
