Reminder – Come see what’s growing at Queens
than celebrating the build up to Christmas with just a
‘typical’ walk up Franklin Road, take a little detour
and check out ChildFund’s spectacular gift popping up at
Queens Wharf tonight.
The huge gift will be revealed
from 6pm Friday and showcased throughout Saturday as
part of the Queens Wharf Christmas Party. Come and check it
out as it Grows and Glows in an alternative Christmas lights

kids along (and the camera).
The giant gift is still under
wraps. All we can tell you is that it the first of its kind,
massive, and a showcase of alternative giving this
Christmas. Check out the teaser below for more hints – and
some good looking boys ;)
Merry Christmas and hopefully we
