Childfund are in the final stages of creating their Christmas Tree made up of about 170 bikes! Tumeke were stoked to help out and can’t wait to see the finished product. The Official Lighting Ceremony will take place 8pm on Friday 28th November down at Queens Wharf and all are welcome. Put the date in the diary!
More on the project:
“The trusty bike is a favourite toy for Kiwi kids (and a wrapping paper nightmare for parents!) across the country. Across the ocean, however, in countries like Sri Lanka a bicycle means the difference between a treacherous 4-hour walk to school in the heat and a more manageable 45-minute cycle to the classroom.
To celebrate and highlight the bicycle as one of our many Gifts that Grow, ChildFund New Zealand together with the generous support of Beca and Enterprize Steel, are building a 7-metre tall Christmas Tree made from donated bikes, to be lit up in festive glory on Auckland’s Queen’s Wharf this December.” – https://www.childfund.org.nz/newsroom/bring-us-your-bikes
