Massey's big chip-in efforts appreciated
As part of a nationwide call on Friday to support the people of Christchurch, Massey staff across the campuses wore red and black and chipped in to shout morning tea for staff at Canterbury and Lincoln universities. The Alumni office also put together care packages for selected graduates in the red zone.
The morning tea shout was coordinated by our campus registrars' offices and was arranged with the Canterbury and Lincoln caterers. Money donated by the Massey staff, which is still being counted, should cover the costs of the morning teas provided on the day at both campuses and any surplus funds will be used for future efforts to support Canterbury.
Here is some of the feedback received:
“Thank you so much – great knowing the rest of you do care. Fabulous start to a Friday. You all have a great weekend." – Margaret Ingram, enrolment/fees adviser Student Services Centre, University of Canterbury.
“We really appreciate your kindness." – Christine Nantel, ICT Service Desk assistant\receptionist, Central Library, University of Canterbury.
“On behalf of Lincoln University, I would like to express our thanks to our colleagues at Massey University for thinking of us as part of the 'Big Chip-in for Christchurch’. The morning tea was well attended and widely appreciated, particularly because of the special relationship that exists between our two universities.” – Professor Sheelagh Matear, Acting Vice-Chancellor, Assistant Vice-Chancellor (Academic), Lincoln University.
