Businesses and organisations sponsor and decorate a tree, and the funds raised support the valuable work of Cystic Fibrosis New Zealand. Cystic Fibrosis NZ is the only charity dedicated to supporting and improving quality of life for people with CF and their families in New Zealand.

Funds raised through the Christmas Tree Festival provides personalised support, whether it is emotional guidance, practical advice, or financial assistance, to individuals and their families throughout their journey.

About Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a serious and ultimately terminal genetic condition affecting around 540 people in NZ. CF causes the body to produce thick, sticky mucus which damages the lungs, digestive system, liver and other parts of the body.

People with CF endure a rigorous daily treatment regime, including chest physiotherapy, oral, nebulised and occasionally intravenous antibiotics, and taking enzyme tablets with food. Some people with CF will have a feeding tube overnight. This regime can take up to three hours each day, having a huge impact on quality of life.

Progressively, CF can cause diabetes, asthma, liver disease, and permanently reduced lung function which, in many cases, requires a transplant. Life expectancy is in the 30s – less than half that of the average New Zealander.

Cystic Fibrosis NZ is the only charity dedicated to supporting and improving quality of life for people with CF and their families in New Zealand.
