Christmas is upon us again and there’s a great range of fresh Christmas trees to choose from thanks to The Rotary Club of the Hills-Kellyville.

This weekend (December 9 and 10) and December 16 and 17, you can purchase a tree from either The Bull & Bush Hotel, Baulkham Hills or The Ettamogah Hotel, Kellyville Ridge and support Rotary.

All funds raised from the purchase of the trees will go to The Children’s Hospital, Westmead and other Rotary charities.

The Rotary Club of the Hills-Kellyville not only raises funds for numerous programs in The Hills area, but also outback Australia to overseas communities with specific needs.

Details: hillsrotary.org.au or if you’d like to donate to programs or find out about how to become involved.

Some of the Local programs include the local Australia Day Citizenship Ceremony, Vocational Excellence Awards and Literacy Initiatives for students.

Further afield the club continues its Bourke Public School Breakfast Club project, which aims to improve school attendance rates and give the students a good start to their learning day.

At an International level, the club completed its twelve year project of refurbishing classrooms, dining and assembly halls, eco-friendly composting toilets and finally building a cyclone proof class room at Arep Provincial School, Vanua Lava, Vanuatu.
