The Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN) ship HMNZS CANTERBURY will be the venue for a fish and chip lunch for 400 paying guests.
All proceeds will go towards supporting the Wellington City Mission and others in the region who are most in need.
The catered event will also feature entertainment from the RNZN Band. Ship tours and a charity auction are also on the programme.
Many people have donated their time, as well as various products.
The Wellington City Mission has been providing help for 112 years. Just like the Mission, the NZDF prides itself on providing assistance to New Zealanders in times of disaster or emergency and protecting our borders and environment.
The event will take place this Friday 13 February.
