Kia ora and salam,
As with all New Zealander's, we are deeply shocked and saddened by the tragic events which unfolded last Friday and our thoughts, prayers and love goes out to all the families and communities who have been affected. The Braemar Charitable Trust have offered support and heart felt thanks to our health sector colleagues in Christchurch.
