Making Your Christmas Party Socially Responsible

Christmas is traditionally a time of giving and joy!

Workplaces reward their staff with fun a Christmas party, families come together to celebrate over dinner, decorations and carols create a festive atmosphere in shopping centres, kids play happily with their new presents, and the list goes on.

Whilst these images may be familiar to some, they are not for many others.

It is startling to read that 1 in 5 young New Zealanders relied on food assistance during Christmas 2020.

So as a workplace, what can you do to capture the spirit of Christmas, reward your staff and give to those less fortunate than ourselves?

Christmas Party

No matter what cause you are passionate about, we are here to help you support them through delivering a fun and engaging charitable Christmas team building programme that not only delivers on all your desired team building outcomes, but also helps your team give back.

Companies that engage in CSR often benefit from a myriad of benefits that impact their workplace culture too, including becoming an employer of choice, providing more opportunity for team and personal development, boosted employee engagement and improved employee satisfaction.

So, without delay here are our top socially responsible Christmas events that will help your business support the disadvantaged in the community over Christmas, and have a powerful impact on your team culture.


Santa for a Day

Grab your best elf hat; it’s time to help Santa this Christmas! Don’t worry you won’t need to find a reindeer or slide down a chimney, but you will need to work together to fill your Santa Sack with lots of toys to be donated to children who need it most this Christmas.

Add a Christmas Party Twist:

Consider starting this programme at your office and finishing at a function venue (‘Santa’s workshop’) where the celebrations can continue with a glorious Christmas feast. The playful spin on this program transforms to heartwarming with presentations and a visit from the recipient charity at the conclusion of this event.


Lego Legends

In every real adult a child is hidden that wants to play! Make sure you channel your inner child for this uplifting programme that will see participants battle it out to build the most Legendary LEGO structure. The playful spin on this programme transforms to heart-warming when the finished models are donated to a children’s charity of choice.

Add a Christmas Party Twist:

Truly embrace your inner child and have everyone come dressed as what they wanted to be when they grew up! Incorporate this programme into a magical fun filled themed Christmas cocktail party to really add some WOW.

Christmas Party

Bikes for Tykes

One of the most powerful charity team building programmes in New Zealand is Bikes For Tykes – the original charity bike building programme.

Teams work through a series of activities with the overall goal to build a bike from scratch and put a smile on an underprivileged child’s face.

Add a Christmas Party Twist:

Why not add some cheer to your pre dinner drinks and incorporate a Bike Build? Guaranteed to get your group in the festive spirit this short, sharp and dynamic program is the perfect opening to kick off any Christmas celebration.

Christmas House

Give a Dog a Home

Each team’s goal in Give A Dog A Home is to design, build and present an award-winning dog kennel from scratch.

The ultimate reward in this team building programme with a difference is the donation of these new kennels to an animal charity for dogs in need of shelter, including a visit from some friendly canines.

Add a Christmas Party Twist:

This programme presents the perfect opportunity to get your team outdoors and enjoy some fresh air. Why not couple this fun team activity with a Christmas picnic or BBQ in the park and make the most of the wonderful summer sunshine.

Whilst the power lies in the giving to others less fortunate in the community, these team events also focus on the participants learning, understanding and appreciating more about each other and working in unison towards a significant goal.

Why not try something a little different for your Christmas function this year and not only impact your workplace but your wider community as well.
