The building will also allow a painstakingly restored piece of Christchurch history – the 154-year-old Townsend Teece Telescope – to return to its home in the Townsend Observatory, enabling a new generation of people to unearth secrets of the cosmos from the heart of the city.

Beyond the virtual stars, we will recognise your gift appropriately and ensure you are thanked and remembered.

Major donors will have the opportunity to have naming rights to parts of the Observatory Tower. All donors will be named on our website, in our annual report and on a permanent donors’ board.

We can’t wait to restore this taonga (treasure) for generations to come – please help us on our journey.
