Hospice New Zealand

Farmers Tree of Remembrance

Record breaking $768,162.08 raised for hospice!

In the weeks leading up to Christmas, the Caring Connections in our Community event gave Farmers customers the opportunity to remember someone special to them, and to make a donation or buy a limited-edition bauble in support of the work of hospice.

100% of all funds donated in each store remain in the local community, helping to ensure that hospice care remains free of charge for people with life-limiting conditions, their families and whānau.Tree image.jpg

Mary Schumacher, Chief Executive of Hospice NZ, says, “Our heart-felt thanks to everyone who contributed to this extraordinary result. The funds raised will make a real difference for people using hospice services throughout New Zealand. It’s humbling to see the way people come together for this event to remember their loved ones and to ensure their community’s hospice service remains free of charge.  We are incredibly grateful to everyone at Farmers for being such wonderful ambassadors for hospice, and to their customers for their generosity and kindness”.

Michael Power, acting Chief Executive of Farmers and Chief Financial Officer says, “The delivery of a national store-wide approach to our charity campaigns helps build a meaningful opportunity to connect with the community, as our staff work in unison toward a common goal. At Farmers we are extremely proud of the amount raised during our Christmas hospice campaign through a combined effort and generous donations made by our customers, our staff and our business.  It’s heart-warming to know the positive difference it will make in our communities.”
