Coca-Cola Christmas on The Breeze is a live, three hour Christmas radio show with a 100% fully live broadcast; live interviews, live music, live commercial breaks - ALL live.
With Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park postponed for the first time in 26 years due to COVID-19, we're helping to bring the Christmas cheer to Kiwi homes as well as fundraise money for Youthline during our special live event.
Hosted by our own Robert Rakete and Jeanette Thomas, and featuring a number of local and international guests and performances, our never-been-done radio, stage and TV show will be live from 7am to 10am on Friday 11 December, on The Breeze, streaming through rova, livestreaming on our website and airing on Breeze TV.
And we'll be aiming to raise as much money as we can for Youthline who have needed to support more families and young people during 2020.

Youthline has been the recipient charity for Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park for over thirteen years and the postponement of this event means less money to help young Kiwis at a time they need it the most.
Youthline is a “with youth, for youth” organisation, helping young Kiwis (aged 12-24 years) and the adults who support them. They provide a 24/7 Helpline, face to face counselling, youth mentoring, education and training programmes in schools and the community. Last year they supported 26,622 young people and received over 247,488 contacts to their Helpline.
Every year, Youthline need to find $1 million to keep their Helpline running. With COVID-19 cancelling a number of their fundraising events, they need more support, especially as there has been a significant increase in the number of young people and families reaching out to Youthline for support.
