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, 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.
2020 Cystic Fibrosis Wellington Christmas Tree Festival
Make your business shine bright this year with a branded Christmas Tree at Wellington Airport...and together we can give people with cystic fibrosis a better and brighter future.
Navigating Covid-19 has made 2020 a particularly tricky year for people living with chronic respiratory conditions like our cystic fibrosis (CF) population, but we also know this has been a truly difficult year for many of you.
Now a stalwart on the Wellington calendar, we are pleased to announce the CF Christmas Tree Festival will defeat Covid-19 and once again be a festive display throughout Wellington Airport. We would love for you to join us in creating something beautiful to say goodbye to this strange year, and hopefully welcome a better and brighter 2021 for us all.
Your support means that people with CF can continue to be supported, have access to information, know someone is advocating on their behalf, and that there are scientists pursuing every opportunity for a better future.
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.
