Christmas donations & celebrations

22 February 2023

As usual there were plenty of festive celebrations to be enjoyed just before Christmas, and we received a huge haul of gifts and essential items from some of our very kind supporters. 

HomeShare Christmas

Mid Canterbury held a Christmas party at Lake Hood for both HomeShare clients and hosts. Santa delivered tasty baked treats and calendars, which were donated by the Ashburton Inner Wheel, and clients also received Christmas cards, handmade by local school children.

Christmas giving

Our offices were flooded with gifts and essential items, which were kindly donated by our supporters. They helped to make Christmas a little brighter for many of the families we support.

We are so thankful to everyone involved and who donated items. Our special thanks to Rangi Ruru School, 2degrees, Duncan Cotterill, Ballantynes, and Riccarton Rotary Club for their continued support this year, it is much appreciated.

Continuing the celebrations




North Canterbury Tōtara Club clients, staff and volunteers enjoyed a lovely relaxing lunch at The Plough, filled with endless laughter and chatter.





Youth Mentor Coordinator Angela Adcock organised a wonderful Christmas event for Family Works Mentor Volunteers in Christchurch, to say thank you for their dedication.






Enliven colleagues had chance to celebrate and reminisce on the past year during a tasty Christmas dinner at Le Soleil in Kaiapoi.
