From the BNZ website:
BNZ Markets have up to $15,000 available to give away as community grants to Christchurch based BNZ customers who have been financially affected by the 2011 Christchurch earthquake. The grants are available to families with school-age children to give a hand with expenses that are not already covered by insurance. Expenses may relate to education, sports, health or music – wherever you need help.
The grants are a result of fundraising events held by BNZ Markets in memory of a former colleague, Cayne Dunnett, who suffered a fatal heart-related illness in 2004. BNZ Markets have already donated $3000 to Plunket Canterbury for much needed infant car-seats as part of this series of community grants.
