IT’S beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and soon it will start smelling like it, as Newcastle Kiwanis Club gets set to sell pine trees for charity again.
On December 10 from 7am, club members will be selling Christmas trees at three Hunter locations.
There will be trees available at the Telstra Tower on the corner of City Road and Fernleigh Loop at Adamstown Heights, at 161 Macquarie Road, Macquarie Hills, and at Eleebana Lions Park on the corner of Macquarie and Glad Gunson Drive.
The annual Christmas tree sale is the major fundraiser for Kiwanis Newcastle.
Club president Ken Archer said there would be 400 trees available, and proceeds would go to charities in the region.
“We support Ronald McDonald House, Heart Kids, and John Hunter Children’s Hospital,” he said.
“We also put together ‘care buckets’ – with things like toothbrushes, soap and washers – for homeless men through the Soul Cafe.”
