Thank you to the Rotary Club of Christchurch for their generous donation

We wish to give special thanks to the members of the Rotary Club of Christchurch (RCC) for choosing the Laura Fergusson Brain Injury Trust as a recipient of their generous $25,000 Impact Grant.

The RCC is the beneficiary of three trusts whose income is available annually to be donated to projects that are beneficial to the community. Their Impact Grant is designed to have a significant impact on the recipient charitable organisation. LFBIT applied for this grant and was selected as the charitable organisation that best met the RCC’s criteria.

Charlie Rattray, President-Elect of the RRC explains, “the wonderful work the LFBIT performs with people with brain injury is commendable, and aligns closely with Rotary’s criteria, and recognises the huge contribution the LFBIT makes in that area.”

“The Rotary Club of Christchurch has made the first significant donation to our fundraising campaign to build a purpose-built campus for all of the Laura Fergusson Brain Injury Trust’s services,” says Capital Campaign Director Nicky Averill. “We are so incredibly grateful for the generosity shown by this Rotary Club.”

The RCC was the third Rotary Club to be established in New Zealand and is celebrating 100 years of community service in Christchurch in April 2022. During that 100 years, the RCC has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars, either from funds raised, donations received or through income, to a vast array of charitable organisations and causes in Christchurch, for the benefit of disadvantaged people.
