Looking for a way to spend your Christmas break?

Those six days between Christmas and New Years can feel like you’re in a state of limbo. The days feel as though they all flow into one and before you know it, 2023 has arrived. If you’re looking for some fun things to get up to – or some creative ways to spice up your summer break – fear not! We have some wonderful ideas for you.

This year we have had the pleasure of working alongside some wonderful people and businesses to provide Dream Days to some extremely deserving Kiwi kids. Lifetime is proud to be the principal sponsors of Dream Days – a charitable trust dedicated to giving children aged between 5-21 that are affected by disability or illness a Dream Day with their friends and family. This is a nation-wide effort and relies heavily on the community involvement we receive to put on such special days for each child.

If you’re looking for something to do this summer, why not check out some of the amazing companies below and support a local business doing good for our community.


Butterfly Creek – A fun day out for the whole family to meet some pretty cool animals (dinosaurs included!).

Jump – Let the kids blow off some steam, and maybe join them for a jump yourself.
