An inspiring array of Christmas trees will be lit up when the Lions Club of Kowhai Coast returns for its sixth Treemendous fundraising event next month.
The display will be held at the Old Masonic Hall in Warkworth, from December 5 to 9, with all proceeds going to Kawau Coastguard.
About 50 trees will be decorated in a range of themes. The club will also be running a raffle and selling homemade baking.
Coordinator Elizabeth Price says the display takes more than two days to set up and is getting more popular every year.
“It’s a huge effort and we couldn’t do it without the help of our husbands,” Elizabeth says.
Santa will also be at the event on December 5 to 8, from 3pm to 4pm, and on December 9, from 10am to 12 noon and from 1pm to 2pm. Adult tickets are $3 and children $1.
The event raised around $8000 last year.
