Christmas is a wonderful time of celebration, giving and enjoying the Kiwi summer. It is also a time to reflect on loved ones that aren’t here to celebrate with us. So remember someone special this Christmas and support your local hospice in store at Farmers.
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.
The 2019 limited edition hand-painted Christmas glass bauble, titled “ngaru” has sold out on the Farmers website and is only available from Farmers Stores. Designed by artist Spencer Bellas. At only $10 each, the full purchase price is donated to your hospice. His design is based on a ngaru, which is Maori for wave. It represents the journey of life - multiple waves moving together as whanau.
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 14th 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.
