Canterbury Branch

The Canterbury Branch covers a large region from the top of the South Island to Timaru.  The region includes Nelson, Marlborough and Blenheim, the West Coast, North Canterbury, Kaikoura, Canterbury and South Canterbury. 

With a very small amount of government funding only, the branch relies on donations and grants to continue its work in the community.  The branch committee fundraise throughout the year for local services.

To find out more about supporting the branch, or becoming involved in the committee, please contact the Branch Chairperson by email [email protected] or by phoning 03 377 8010.
