CHRISTMAS IN CANTERBURY
We’re fortunate to work alongside Bayleys Canterbury, who dedicate their partnership with us to delivering a variety of community-based initiatives throughout the region.
We believe it’s more important than ever for the people of Ōtautahi and Canterbury to come together and enjoy kindness, happiness and joy at Christmas.
Following the cancellation of the Christchurch Christmas Parade, along with the annual Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park, a genuine sense of loss was felt by the people of Canterbury – even earthquakes hadn’t stopped these traditional family events.
To fill this void, we delivered to the people of Canterbury in partnership with the Christchurch City Mission, our very own Christmas in Ōtautahi. With the focal point being the lighting of the Christmas tree decorated with 50,000 lights reflecting the many lives touched by the Christchurch City Mission annually.
50,000 lights and 100,000 smiling faces, new traditions for all.
