Christmas Tree Festival

Our 2019 Christmas Tree Festival was a great success, thank you for your support.  

We hope you have a safe and happy holiday and look forward to seeing you in the new year.

Our popular festival originally began in the 1960s in the backyard of Frank Burton, whose daughter attended our day support services. In time the festival grew to become our biggest fundraising event, attracting generations of families who regard buying one of our trees as a Christmas tradition.

Each year, more than 1500 trees are sold by a dedicated team of volunteers who give their time throughout the week and on weekends to help people find that perfect pine. The festival runs throughout December.
