Farmers Tree of Remembrance raises $668,732 for hospices nationwide!
The Tree of Remembrance is a very special event for hospices throughout the country, supported by our wonderful friends at Farmers.
In the weeks leading up to Christmas, each of the 61 Farmers stores across New Zealand host a Tree of Remembrance in-store.
Customers are given the opportunity to remember someone special during the festive season, and to make a donation to support their local hospice service.
While the Tree of Remembrance involves over 4,000 Farmers staff and 1.5 million customers throughout the country, a unique feature of the campaign is that 100% of the funds donated go directly to local hospice services, helping to ensure that hospice care is available to people free of charge.
2016 was the third year of the Tree of Remembrance, raising an incredible $668,732 for hospices across New Zealand.
Hospice New Zealand CEO, Mary Schumacher says, “We are so thankful to everyone who has supported the Tree of Remembrance. Financial support from the community is essential for hospices throughout New Zealand, and we continue to be amazed, humbled and grateful - both to Farmers and their wonderful customers - for their generosity and kindness.”
