Tree of Hope for Christmas

Add some Christmas cheer and love to residents with donations of non-perishable food and gifts (new and pre-loved).

treeofhope 2014

TimeBank member and Garage Sale coordinator, Teresa Cameron, is working with a team to decorate a Christmas Tree at the Lyttelton Library and a smaller version at the Lyttelton Information Centre.

Gifts left under the trees will be distributed to residents based on your nominations. A nomination box will be under the tree: write down the name and address of someone you think needs some Christmas cheer and then on December 13th the organising committee will distribute the gifts based on the nominations. Donations can be left under the trees from 1st - 13th December.

Reusable cups

Only Globelet reusable cups are being used at the street party for ALL drinks and soup. Globelets are New Zealand-made and are recyclable, reusable, BPA-free. You buy your globelet for $2 when you buy your first drink, then the Globelet is yours to use for the night (you can even rinse it at our rinse station!). At the end of the night you can take it home or return it for a refund.
