The halls are well and truly decked at Wellington Airport!

21 December 2022

Our Christmas Tree Festival at Wellington Airport this year is the biggest on record, we had a total of 56 organisations involved who have given their resources, creativity and support to this event.

We are so grateful to all of our incredible sponsors of our 2022 Christmas Tree Festival at Wellington Airport, which is raising awareness of cystic fibrosis in a wonderful and special way.

We want to share these words from the opening night of the festival from our Judge and Artist Lynne Sandri.

"Each year choosing three is so hard, as they just keep getting better and everyone steps up with their time, thought, and messages. They're `Thought Trees' - so much more than `Christmas' trees. Deeper messages, not just celebrating the joy of Christmas and the end of the year but also:

  • sustainability
  • our culture
  • designs
  • embracing local
  • appreciating what's on your doorstep
  • a time to remember and reflect.

So many traffic stopping trees".

Special mentions were given to Homeloan Shop and Dementia Wellington, Samuel Marsden School, Bay Plaza Hotel, Sam's Art House, Scott's College and Maude Wines, but the winners on the night who took out the top 3 places were: Catalyst, Te Matatini Kapa Haka Aotearoa and Ben & Jerrys with Ghost Diving Aotearoa

Thank you also to Wellington Airport for their generosity of the digital advertising prizes for our winners and for their support every year in pulling the festival together, it is a wonderful event and we are so grateful to everyone involved.
