Australian real estate group Harcourts has responded to the severe earthquake that crippled the New Zealand region of Canterbury last weekend, with a donation of $50,000 to help provide assistance to local victims.
Harcourts International managing director Mike Green being able to assist in such times was the aim of the real estate group's Harcourts Foundation.
"This is an extremely worthy cause and the Harcourts team are pleased to be able to make a positive difference in the affected Canterbury communities," said Mr Green.
"This is a hugely challenging time for the people in Canterbury, our thoughts are with them as they look to rebuild after this traumatic event."
