A private family foundation and its adjoining packaging and resource recovery business has made a $250,000 donation to support cyclone-affected Hawke’s Bay communities.

The money donated by Visy through the Pratt Foundation will support the rebuild and recovery of infrastructure in Hawkes Bay, through Hawke’s Bay Foundation’s Cyclone Relief Fund.

Visy Co-owner Fiona Geminder says the funding will target those areas of the region hit hardest by the cyclone.

“We’ve seen time and again how communities come together to support one another in times of crisis, the people of Hawke’s Bay are no different.

“Our hearts go out to all those affected by the cyclone and we hope this donation helps in the recovery,” she said.
