The amazing Iris Franks received a much deserved visit in recognition of her stunning Christmas efforts. Every year Iris decorates her house from head to toe in beautiful Christmas lights and hundreds of Santa’s. She invites the community in to share her house over the festive period and raises funds for charity in the process.

For the last 7 years Iris has raised over $22,000 for the Gut Cancer Foundation! It truly is a stunning effort for which all here at GCF NZ are incredibly grateful.

Three of our intrepid Gutsy Challenge adventurers have taken time out of their training to talk to us about the challenge, what it means to them and the difference the funds they raise will make:


We are excited to announce that Gut Cancer Foundation has once again been chosen as the charity partner of Big Boys Toys. Now into it’s 4th year, our partnership with BBT continues to be a vital part of our events calendar and a key fundraising initiative for GCF.

Every year our team of volunteers man the gates and roam the halls collecting donations from generous visitors to the event. We are currently looking to recruit our team for this year’s event and anyone interested can click here for more information.

We are extremely grateful to the Big Boys Toys team for this ongoing partnership and will be announcing a very special addition to this year’s partnership shortly.
