Over $40,000 donated to Christchurch family robbed after earthquake

Music 16/11/2016

A family-of-four returned to their home in New Brighton, Christchurch hours after the initial quake to find their home had been ransacked by brazen burglars who'd taken more than $5000 worth of belongings.

A public response on a Givealittle pagehas seen more than $46,000 raised for the family who has a daughter that suffers from muscular dystrophy.

The Mill family were one of 19 robberies across the South Island after leaving their home when Monday morning's 7.5 earthquake struck.
