Cystic Fibrosis Wellington Christmas Tree Festival
The Cystic Fibrosis Wellington Christmas Tree Festival lights up Wellington Airport through December, and all for a great cause.
Businesses and organisations sponsor and decorate a tree (there are prizes for best dressed tree), and the funds raised support the valuable work of Cystic Fibrosis Wellington. Last Christmas, together we raised enough money to employ a Family Support Worker for the Central Region, and essential medical equipment used by people with cystic fibrosis in the region.
2018 Cystic Fibrosis Wellington Christmas Tree Festival
2018 marks 50 years of Cystic Fibrosis NZ, and 50 years of supporting people with cystic fibrosis. This year we are aiming to have 50 trees on display – a huge challenge and an exciting opportunity for the charity. Download the information pack with more infomation on getting involved.
About Cystic Fibrosis Wellington
Cystic fibrosis is a life-limiting condition. It is caused by a faulty gene, (that one in 25 carry, often without knowing) and causes a wide range of symptoms such as reduced lung function, chronic infections and malnutrition. There is currently no cure.
Cystic Fibrosis Wellington are our local branch of Cystic Fibrosis New Zealand, who work towards a vision of all people living with cystic fibrosis can experience optimised quality of life. Their work includes providing information and support, advocacy, medical equipment and welfare assistance, plus helping enable the nation's best scientists research new treatments and a cure.
