South Canterbury RSA

Betts is pleased to be able to offer a special arrangement with financial members of the SCRSA in the event of their death. If you choose to use our company as your choice of funeral director and use the facalities at the local RSA for your afternoon tea following the proceedings, you will qualify for a $500 voucher towards the refreshments.

Death comes to all of us at one time or another. This arrangement has been set up to ease the financial burden on the remaining family members.
