Caring Connections in Our Community

    Thank You!

    Together over Christmas, Farmers, customers and staff raised a record-breaking


    for hospices around the country.

    "Once again Farmers customers have given incredibly generous support to hospice services throughout the country. Thank you to everyone who donated or purchased a bauble over Christmas. The record breaking total of $776,000 shows how supportive communities are of their local hospice service.

    Thanks to your support hospice services can remain free of charge to anyone needing care and support as they approach the end of their lives. "

    Mary Schumacher, Chief Executive, Hospice New Zealand

    Your donations went to your hospice

    Every Farmers store was connected to their local hospice during this campaign. This meant that 100% of all donations, including the full $10 of the bauble purchase price, went directly to the store’s local hospice, ensuring funds raised were kept in your community.

    Hospices around the country aim to help people make the most of their lives; to live every moment in whatever way is important to them. 100% of your donations at Farmers will go directly to your local hospice to ensure their services remain free of charge in your community.

    Remember Loved Ones this Christmas

    Tree of Remembrance is a very special event for hospices throughout the country and is an opportunity to remember someone special in the lead up to Christmas.

    Between 15th November - 24th December make an open donation at your local Farmers store and receive a card to write your personal message on, then place it on the dedicated remembrance tree in store.

    It’s not just about remembering someone who has died. People might be thinking of their family who live overseas or in other parts of the country, friends they might not see as often as they would like, or even beloved pets.
