Christmas Appeal 2017 Give heritage a helping hand by donating $50 today

Christmas appeal 2017

Without your support during 2017, we simply couldn’t have achieved half as much for the heritage of New Zealand, so thank you for making a difference.

You have helped to restore, conserve and protect some incredibly important historic places in New Zealand over the last 12 months.

The Timeball, an internationally significant maritime heritage place, is right now being rebuilt on its original site in Lyttelton.

And, thanks to you, the Melanesian Mission in Auckland has just reopened its doors to the public following a complete restoration and redevelopment programme.

Projects like this have happened because of you.

So, as this year draws to a close, will you consider New Zealand’s unique historic places and all that needs to be done in 2018 to continue to protect them?

As you prepare to visit friends and family, perhaps you will be visiting some of these wonderful places on your travels. By making an end-of-year donation, you will directly help to preserve them for the future.

Please make an end-of-year donation right now

A Christmas gift donation of $50 will help us keep the lights on, doors open and buildings protected in 2018.

Whatever you choose to give, you will be directly helping to care for heritage sites across New Zealand. Donate online now, or if you prefer to give another way, please contact Supporter Services on 0800 802 010.
