Twelve Days of Christmas

Announcing the winners of our Twelve Days of Christmas grants 2017

As we prepare for a busy time of year welcoming people from across the world, we’re pleased to bring $120,000 of Christmas cheer to 12 great charities, with our annual Twelve Days of Christmas grants.

Thank you to the hundreds of thousands of travellers who placed unwanted currency into collection globes around our terminals this year. We’ve topped up these funds and these grants are the result.

Thank you, too, to our Twelve Days of Christmas media partner The New Zealand Herald for giving each charity the chance to tell their story in the days leading up to Christmas Eve.

About the charities and the causes that will benefit

These charities are working in the Greater Auckland Region in one or more of the three areas Auckland Airport has chosen to support as a socially responsible business: empowering people through education, helping people into employment and protecting the environment.
