The UK Christchurch Earthquake Appeal Trust has raised approx. 5m USD since its establishment to assist Canterbury through a variety of charitable projects in the Canterbury region, including community projects, sporting projects and educational projects.

Christchurch is still pretty shaken today. 185 people died in the earthquake that reduced many parts of the city to ruins, and had a profound impact on the whole region’s economy, in which tourism played a crucial part.

Your donation will enable the UK Appeal to continue to support the people of Christchurch as they rebuild their lives and communities.

Your donation will be matched by Microsoft, meaning for every pound raised, they will give another pound!

Event details

The big Blog4NZ tour and challenge

Meagaan Irish and Christina Hegele of Sandal Road are travelling New Zealand to raise money for the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal.

Your donations will push us to perform such daring feats as:

- jump out of a plane from 15,000ft
- bungy off a bridge 400m above Queenstown
- brave dangerous grade 5 river rapids and 7m high waterfalls
- jet boat under a giant waterfall
- climb an active volcano that just erupted
- surf NZ's gnarliest waves

Best of all: your donation will be doubled by Microsoft!

Show Christchurch some love and follow the action-packed adventures on Sandal Road!
