Farmers Christmas Campaign 2019
Hospices throughout the country have once again been overwhelmed and humbled by the support from Farmers Department Stores and their customers in the lead up to Christmas. More than $759,000 was donated towards the end of 2019.
This is the sixth year that Farmers has raised funds for hospice and to date has generated more than $4.2M to help keep services free of charge.
One of the unique elements of this fundraising is that 100% of funds raised in each community stay in that community to support the local hospice service. The iconic annual bauble produced by Farmers exclusively for hospice was once again in high demand. In 2019 nearly 15,000 of the hand painted collectable baubles “Ngaru” by Spencer Bellas were sold, contributing a significant sum to the final total.
