Cyclone Gabrielle continues to impact the Hawke’s Bay and the effects will be long-lasting.
Critical infrastructure repairs are a top priority, but the damage wrought by the cyclone is not just physical – the mental health and wellbeing of business owners, employees and the broader community cannot be understated.
Wellington Chamber Chief Executive John Milford said the Golf Day is an opportunity for the business community to support a local charity.
"Wellington Cancer Society is an extremely worthwhile cause, and we are hoping that businesses will join us to support them.
"This new proposal for the convention centre will give Wellington a fit-for-purpose venue that local businesses say the city really needs if it is to continue to grow," says Chief Executive John Milford.
"Sir John was a great servant for Wellington, leading many major organisations here, including Capital & Coast DHB, the Wellington Regional Strategy Committee, and ANZ Bank following its merger with the National Bank," says Chief Executive John Milford.

Business Central has some concerns about the impact these changes will have on businesses and on the relationship between employers and employees.
