We want our community to be a friendly and happening place, where locals know locals.

Community Fun Day

Once a year we assist Life Church in hosting a Community Fun Day in Hansons Reserve. This is always a highlight on the calendar as families enjoy the sunshine, a BBQ, music, bouncy castles, face painting, a free clothing stall and candyfloss. 

Christmas Box

The heart of Christmas Box New Zealand is to literally deliver 'Christmas in a Box' to families in need at Christmas time. It is a food hamper that will cater to a family of 4-6 people, with the idea to cover a week's worth of meals. Because of the generosity of sponsors, a few treats get thrown in as well! We have been privileged to work alongside Christmas Box since 2015, helping to coordinate the Christchurch packing and distribution of over 1,000 boxes for the wider Christchurch area.

This year La Vida Youth Trust, in conjunction with Life Church here in Christchurch, is once again supporting 200 boxes to be gifted to Riccarton Primary families along with an additional 50 boxes for families in our immediate vicinity.  

You can sponsor a box for 2018 by contacting us at lyt@lyt.org.nz or find out more about Christmas Box at www.christmasbox.co.nz
