Honda Commits $100,000 to New Christchurch Earthquake Mayoral Fund
Honda New Zealand through its local Dealership, Honda Cars Christchurch, has committed $100,000 to the Mayoral Fund established on Thursday 24 February to help Christchurch residents following Tuesday's devastating earthquake. Branch Manager Paul White says Honda takes its community responsibility seriously and that this is one way that they can help their fellow Cantabrians.
"Everyone at Honda has been affected by the earthquakes, including our premises, however we know there are others who have a greater need than ours. While our dealership is within the restricted area and we don't yet know the extent of damage to it, Honda New Zealand will draw on our reserves to help those whose lives have been literally turned upside down by the events of this week. Honda Cars Christchurch, which has been in Christchurch since 1977, is very much part of the local community and we want to help our friends and neighbours. The wider team at Honda across the country are also working on other ways to help but we believe that contributing to this newly established fund is a good way of getting things going," he explains.
