A fi­esta of dec­o­rat­ing for the kids

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Santa’s lit­tle helpers are needed to dec­o­rate dozens of small Christ­mas trees in time for the silly sea­son.

Mt Eden’s Tree Dec­o­rat­ing Fi­esta will see fam­i­lies cre­ate dec­o­ra­tions and put their own twist on Christ­mas this Satur­day.

Young helpers can choose their tree and get dec­o­rat­ing be­fore re­ceiv­ing a prize and car­ry­ing the tree home.

The tree and ma­te­ri­als will be sup­plied for a $10 do­na­tion to the Max­ine van der Velden Me­mo­rial Char­i­ta­ble Trust.

All pro­ceeds

will

go to­wards the trust’s schol­ar­ship for young Auck­lan­ders.

The trust was formed in mem­ory of Mt Eden res­i­dent Max­ine van der Velden who died af­ter a hi­tand-run ac­ci­dent when she was just 19.

Head to Es­sex Re­serve, 3 Ngau­ruhoe St from noon to 1pm on Sun­day to take part.
