Alex Swney CEO Heart of the City says "we are humbled but in no way surprised by the generosity of the central Auckland businesses, and have no doubt this will be reflected in the funds that our combined efforts generate.

We challenge other businesses to join us in donating goods to this auction to maximise the support we can provide to our Christchurch friends" he concludes.
