Be Part of The Magic This Christmas

It reaches seven storeys high, attracts over 150,000 visitors each year and is made up of 375,000 twinkling lights. It’s that time of year again - when the Telecom Christmas Tree will light up Auckland’s summer skies for all to see.

This year, the tree will be located in a magical location in Auckland’s busy waterfront. The perfect Kiwi Christmas Summer destination, Te Wero Island is the new host for the Tree, which has been a place for all Aucklanders since 2008 to reflect, send Santa their wishes, and soak up the festive atmosphere.

The Telecom Foundation will initiate the special lighting ceremony of the Tree that will take place on Friday 2nd December from 7.30pm at Te Wero Island. In the spirit of Christmas, everyone is encouraged to bring a gift, large or small, to leave at the Tree for children in need.

The Telecom Foundation is the umbrella organisation for all Telecom’s community and charitable giving, with a focus on giving Kiwi kids a better future. A proportion of the gifts collected in Auckland will be delivered to children in Christchurch who have had it particularly tough in recent times.

Santa will be on call too, with the much-loved tradition of Telecom’s Santaline coming back to capture all Auckland’s kids’ wish lists for 2011. Not only will there be Telephone boxes to ring the North Pole set up at the Tree, but the national 0800 number opens from November 25th. 0800 222 222.

Other Trees will also be placed in Wellington and Christchurch, with each Tree linked to the others via fibre, enabling anyone visiting the Telecom Tree website to design a light sequence, and watch it play live on a Tree.

Auckland’s Tree will play host to a spectacular lightshow from dusk until dawn and be open all day, every day, until Boxing Day when the lights will switch off again for another year.

The Telecom Christmas Tree is a truly magical place, where many go for reflection and peace – a special pause in what is a very busy time of year!
