ChildFund’s Tree of Bikes Lighting Ceremony
A 7-metre tall Christmas Tree made from donated bikes? That sounds interesting.
In the developing-world bikes can make such a difference for children living in poverty. How’d you fancy a 15km walk to school? Yep, give me a bike ride any day – more time and energy available for hitting the books that way.
These particular bikes won’t be going off-shore. Once the festive season is over they’ll be wheeling their way to community groups here in New Zealand.
