Supporting the community and local charities

Each year at Merlino's Christmas Trees, we show our support for a local charity. Once again this year we will be supporting The Children's Hospital at Westmead.

Each year you can show your support by donating a gold coin and we will happily net your freshly cut Christmas tree netted.

Don't know what netting a real cut christmas actually means? It's just like wrapping a present, except for a real Christmas tree.

With your support In 2010 & 2011, we managed to raise over $1200 for the Princess Charlotte Alopecia Foundation to help pay for a number of wigs for individuals. 

Alopecia areata is a condition affecting people, in which hair is lost from areas of the body, usually the scalp. The condition can affect people of all ages that are healthy and have no skin disorder. It commonly occurs in late teenage years, early childhood and your adulthood.
