More than 2000 people joined in celebrations today at the Auckland Viaduct Events Centre. Here they ate together and celebrated together for the most part of the afternoon.

Every year a vast number of volunteers give up their time to cater to the people and to also present every child that attends with a gift this Christmas. The Auckland City mission once again brightened up the lives of many this year.

While the event is never an easy task, those who take part and give their time to ensure it happens believe it is an event that boosts the spirits of many families over the holiday period.

Our reporter Nūmia Pōnika-Rangi went along to the event and was a part of today’s festivities.
