‘Adventure All Stars’ Filming In NZ This Week

INAUGURAL NZ SERIES ‘ADVENTURE ALL STARS’ FILMING IN CHRISTCHURCH, GERALDINE, WAITAKI, ROXBURGH AND QUEENSTOWN THIS WEEK FOR TVNZ 2

ERIN SIMPSON HOSTING LOCAL VERSION OF THE GROUND-BREAKING GLOBAL TV FORMAT

FUNDS RAISED FROM SERIES DISTRIBUTED TO NEW ZEALAND CHARITIES

 

New Zealand’s Christchurch, Geraldine, Waitaki, Roxburgh and Queenstown will play a starring role in the fifth episode of Charity TV Global’s ground-breaking socially conscious New Zealand television series, ‘Adventure All Stars’, with top-secret* filming commencing from today until Friday November 9 2019.

From a visit to the International Antarctic Centre, kayaking, jet-boating through to mountain biking and a Halo training program, the real-life local cast of ‘Adventure All Stars’ will experience the best the South Island has to offer – and be filmed doing it for TVNZ 2.

Made up of 6 x 1-hour episodes and hosted by quintessential Kiwi girl, television presenter and artist, Erin Simpson, the inaugural New Zealand series is currently in production and will be filming across both North and South islands throughout 2019.

The ‘Adventure All Stars’ series is produced by award-winning production company, Charity TV Global.  As a socially conscious enterprise, Charity TV Global has developed a unique casting process that provides an extraordinary opportunity for anyone to undertake an epic fundraising journey (pre-filming) for their nominated charity, culminating in the filming of the adventure of a lifetime.  

The net proceeds of every ‘Adventure All Stars’ television project is distributed to Charity TV Global’s philanthropic partners worldwide.

The recipient New Zealand charity of this episode is St John New Zealand.  St John has existed in New Zealand since 1885 and is part of a global organisation known as the Order of St John, which is active in more than 40 countries.  The Order of St John can trace its history back to a hospital set up in Jerusalem during the Crusades over a thousand years ago.

Over 50 New Zealand locals have been rewarded for their philanthropic efforts with starring roles in the ‘Adventure All Stars’ series, having raised the required funds for Charity TV Global’s New Zealand charity partners: Make-a-Wish NZ, Mothers Helpers, St John New Zealand, 360 Community Trust, New Zealand Blue Light and Asthma NZ. 

*PLEASE NOTE – filming locations and activities are a surprise element of the series, so participants are not aware until arriving at each location and activity
