PRESS RELEASE

TEAR Fund New Zealand is delighted by the success of last night’s appeal at the Cliff Richard and the Shadows Concert in Auckland. Pop legend Sir Cliff, patron of TEAR Fund’s sister organisation in the UK, endorsed TEAR Fund’s Haiti earthquake appeal.

TEAR Fund’s events manager, Sarah Jefferies, said Sir Cliff had a real heart for the people of Haiti. “We are delighted that Sir Cliff is supporting TEAR Fund’s fundraising efforts for Haiti.”
Through his encouragement at last night’s Auckland concert where he asked concert-goers to give generously to the collectors outside, more than $5000 was raised in half an hour. Marketing and communications manager Sheena Duffy expressed her gratitude this morning saying, “I am so thankful for the charitable support of the many Aucklanders who gave generously to this worthwhile cause.”

Despite the overwhelming response to TEAR Fund’s Haiti Appeal, more funding is still urgently required. Visit www.tearfund.org.nz to donate now.
