Candlelight Vigil for Christchurch

18 March 2019

You are invited to come together this Friday with Migrant Connections Taranaki, the Muslim Association of Taranaki and NPDC to honour the Muslim community and people of Christchurch at a Candlelight Vigil held at the TSB Bowl of Brooklands.

This event will bring us together to show Taranaki’s support to Christchurch and that we stand with them and share their grief. Let us show that the people of Taranaki will not stand for any acts of violence and terrorism in our country.

Please bring a candle to light in remembrance of those who lost their lives. There will be speeches, a prayer, and an opportunity to light your own candles to honour those killed in the mosque attack in Christchurch last week

More details on what will take place during the event will be shared soon.

You can donate directly to the Muslim Association of Taranaki - Humanitarian Appeal Fund which they have set up to assist in the relief efforts for the Muslim Community in Christchurch. TSB Bank: 15-3953-0357272-03 Reference: Christchurch

All donations are greatly appreciated.

You can find more about this event on Facebook. Official proceedings begin at 7.00pm.
