The purpose of the Trust, which was established in 1988, is to distribute funds for charitable, cultural, philanthropic and recreational benefits in our four regions (Canterbury, Nelson, Marlborough and the Chatham Islands) - all of which benefit our quality of life. Our donations in turn, assist thousands of people working in numerous voluntary organisations, to create their own social and cultural dividends thereby rewarding their communities.
The Canterbury Community Trust (TCCT) trustees visited the Champion Centre on 26th September 2011. In recent years TCCT has made annual donations to the Christchurch Early Intervention Trust which operates out of the Champion Centre. These funds help and contribute to the excellent work carried out at the Champion Centre.
The Christchurch City Mission has been servicing the Canterbury Community for the past 100 years. They started as a “meal room” at St Lukes Church providing meals for the poor of the city. The City Mission now provide a full range of social services to those in need.
