A LITTLE cluster of Christmas trees is sending the message of giving this festive season.
Rose City Shoppingworld has brought back its Wishing Trees this year, after a successful introduction last Christmas.
Each tree is adorned with baubles, representing a needy Southern Downs child.
Those who are eager to spread some Christmas cheer and brighten the child's day can take the bauble and gift to the centre management office.
Rose City Shoppingworld marketing manager Louise de Lissa said she was hoping to have 200 gifts donated before Christmas Eve.
Mrs de Lissa said it was easy to see the joy people got from helping children this way.
"I have noticed that both customers and retailers love that they're giving something to someone who needs it for Christmas," she said.
"And it also teaches kids about the gift of giving and that it's not all about them."
The age and sex of the child is located on the bauble, ranging from toddlers to teenagers.
