A record-breaking $776,000 has been donated to New Zealand hospice services this year thanks to the generosity and support of Farmers Department Store customers and staff across the country.
In the weeks leading up to Christmas, Farmers customers are given the opportunity to remember someone special to them by making a donation or buying a limited edition bauble in support of the work of hospice.
Farmers have been supporting us in this way since 2014, and nearly $3.5 million has been donated to date to help keep hospice services free of charge. This is the largest ever national fundraising campaign to support hospice and we are incredibly grateful to the Farmers team and their customers for giving so generously to support our services.
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.
