Standing united in our nation’s darkest hour

Everyone at Autofile – and our readers at home and overseas – extend their deepest condolences to the families of those who died as a result of the mass shootings at two Christchurch mosques. 

We all stand united in support of those affected – directly, indirectly and further afield – by the horrific events of March 15.

If you want to help, a Give A Little page has been set up.  As at noon on March 19, more than $6.1 million had been donated.

Victim Support says donations will be ring-fenced to provide resources and support to those affected.
