Added to this dilemma was the need to urgently replace one of the vans they use on a daily basis to transport children into Christchurch City for medical care and activities.
Murdoch said the gift of the van was greatly appreciated and would make a big difference to the comfort level of the children being transported to and from the city on a regular basis.
Cholmondeley has been providing care and education to children from families struggling in the Canterbury community, for over eighty five years, and since the recent earthquakes the demand for their services had increased even further.
President Keith said "this is a very satisfying project for our club and we are pleased to be in a position to support this very worthy organisation in this way.”
