Koru Care NZ set to celebrate Christmas with their annual Christmas Cruise
Now into its fifth year, the annual Koru Care NZ Christmas Harbour Cruise will set sail on the 9th of December, with up to 250 excited children boarding a Fullers Ferry for to take them out on a harbour cruise, before a picnic and entertainment.
Each December for the last five years Koru Care NZ have been taking children on a harbor cruise in conjunction with Fullers and other sponsors, giving children from various organisations and those who have been on Koru Care NZ trips the chance to meet up again and celebrate the festive season.
Previous cruises have seen Koru Care supported by 60 volunteers helping to look after the children.
The day will include a two hour cruise on a Fullers Ferry around the Auckland harbour, then a party and BBQ at Eastern Beach.
Koru Care tries every year to have a guest of honour on the cruise, with previously cruises having seen Ronald McDonald, former Prime Minister Helen Clark and TV personalities. As Ann Bain of Koru Care NZ says “The kids get a real kick out of meeting these personalities and are often heard talking about the day long afterward.”
The children on the cruise have also been treated to displays by tug boats, buzzed by the Police helicopter Eagle and the police IRB boats.
Koru Care NZ would like to thank all those who are helping to make this year’s cruise a success.
