New Zealand Bravery Awards

This afternoon at the Christchurch Town Hall, Dame Cindy hosted the New Zealand Bravery Awards, acknowledging those who exhibited such extraordinary courage at the Al Noor Mosque and Linwood Islamic Centre on 15th March 2019. The family of the late Dr Naeem Rashid, who lost his life that day, accepted the insignia of the New Zealand Cross on his behalf. Each of today's Bravery Award recipients helped to save the lives of others, and they have earned the deepest respect and admiration of all New Zealanders.
