It’s been humbling today to watch the fundraiser ‘Givealittle’ rise so swiftly –  from $800 mid morning to $12,005, as at 2.59pm – as those in the New Zealand wine industry dig deep to assist Raymond Chan, one of the country’s most experienced wine tasters, judges, retailers and wine consultants.

Chan has cancer and and needs assistance with high priced treatment. So  Pete Monk put his hand up to help. Monk is the business manager at Ata Rangi in Martinborough and says that cancer treatment is bad enough, without having to worry about how to fund it.

“We asked how we could help when we learnt that Raymond Chan and his partner Sue Davies had to come to grips with the fact that their own money to fund expensive cancer drugs had run out,” says Monk.
