Cambridge lost no time in reaching out to help those most affected by last week’s Cyclone Gabrielle.
Individuals, businesses and other groups and organizations moved swiftly to gather and send out items needed urgently for those in the most severely affected areas. Many here were spurred into action after seeing images of the devastated Hawke’s Bay area. They reached out to social media to launch initiatives which will stay in place for several months.
Among the first to move was a Cambridge Jewellers team. Anna Gerring shared her desire to do something on social media and by 11am she had been contacted by Main fright to say they had a truck going down and could transport donations being dropped off at the jeweller’s shop.
