Tree of bikes

Element - - Upfront -

On the last week­end of Novem­ber you’ll no doubt no­tice the ‘Tree of Bikes’ on Queen’s Wharf, a novel way of cel­e­brat­ing the dif­fer­ence the hum­ble bike makes in the lives of chil­dren around the world. In coun­tries like Sri Lanka a bike can trans­form an ar­du­ous walk along dan­ger­ous roads into a much more man­age­able cy­cle to the class­room. The bike is part of Child­Fund’s al­ter­na­tive ‘Gifts that Grow’ cat­a­logue. You can con­trib­ute your own bike to be part of the tree, by bring­ing it to For­rest Hill Pres­by­te­rian Church, For­rest Hill Road, For­rest Hill on Satur­day, Novem­ber 1, from 10am – 2pm.
