Stuff the Bus

Music 21/11/2016

 This is the Bay's chance to come together this Christmas and help locals who are finding it tough. Help us stuff the bus with labelled presents (with the age and sex the present is suitable for) and non-perishable food for local Bay charities in the lead up to Tauranga’s Christmas in the Park on December 10th. 

We’ve got the bus, thanks to Bethlehem Coachlines. It’s on the streets of the Bay from Tuesday the 22nd of November till Saturday December 10th. 

Check the full schedule below to find out when it's near you and come along with your donation. Charities that will receive donations include: Womens Refuge, Homes of Hope, Good Neighbour Trust and Shakti Womens Refuge.


Thanks to a stack of local businesses for their support including:

Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology

Gerrand Floorings

Pyes Pa Dentists

Harbourside Restaurant

Tauriko Business Estate
