Hawke’s Bay Winegrowers launches Cyclone Gabrielle Relief Fund

Hawke’s Bay Winegrowers Charitable Trust has set up a Cyclone Gabrielle Relief Fund to assist those impacted by the devastating weather event.

“The effects of Cyclone Gabrielle have left many in our Hawke’s Bay Wine community at a loss with the destruction and devastation of homes and vineyards alike,” says HBW.

“Our hearts go out to all those impacted and facing the massive task of cleaning up from the cyclone.”

Many vineyards in Esk Valley in Hawke’s Bay were completely flooded during the cyclone, with water reaching above the tops of the vines.

“While we are still assessing the full extent of the impact of Cyclone Gabrielle, we have had requests for how those wanting to contribute financially can help with the recovery and rehabilitation process.”

The Hawke’s Bay Winegrowers Charitable Trust Cyclone Gabrielle Relief Fund will give 100% of donations to those most in need in the Hawke’s Bay Wine community.

Hawke’s Bay Winegrowers Charitable Trust says it will also match donations up to $30,000.
