Canterbury Claimants

Canterbury Claimants is the name used by a group of members of the Canterbury Community who, from time to time, arrange public meetings for earthquake policyholders.  The purpose of the meetings is to help provide quality information to the policyholder to better enable them to successfully navigate their way through the insurance claim process.


Melanie Bourke, Cam Preston and Jake Preston are the people behind Canterbury Claimants and the role they fulfil is to bring together appropriate speakers, to plan and promote the event.  If you wish to contact Mel, Cam or Jake, use the email address, or you can phone Melanie on 021 449584.
