Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Stan Walker, head­line act at this year’s Co­caCola Christ­mas in the Park, will be en­cour­ag­ing the crowd to text and do­nate to Surf Life Sav­ing New Zealand dur­ing the 20th an­niver­sary show at Auck­land Do­main on De­cem­ber 14.

‘‘We’re de­lighted that Stan is show­ing his sup­port for us,’’ Surf Life Sav­ing New Zealand chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Paul Dal­ton says. ‘‘We’re con­fi­dent that tens of thou­sands of fans will fol­low his in­struc­tions and text their sup­port.’’

Con­cert-go­ers can also con­trib­ute by do­nat­ing gold coins or buy­ing mer­chan­dise in­clud­ing nov­elty light sticks and wrist­bands at the event.

‘‘Last sea­son alone around 4000 vol­un­teer life­guards spent more than 200,000 hours pa­trolling 80 beaches and sav­ing more than 1600 lives, Mr Dal­ton says. ‘‘The money we raise on the night will help keep our life­guards trained and on beaches through­out New Zealand, help­ing Ki­wis to have a safe and happy sum­mer.’’
