Family fun at Festival of Giving

Rotary Docklands’ Festival of Giving is back for a second year this December.

The festival, on Sunday, December 6, will see NewQuay Promenade transformed, with a range of entertainment and activities for all ages.

The pre-Christmas event offers a range of family-friendly activities.

See the Royal Air Force Band and the Salvation Army Band perform, join in a Zumba session, learn how to swing dance or have a go at belly dancing.

Roving entertainers will keep the crowds entertained and a range of bands, singers and performers will take to the stage.

Visitors and locals will also be able to enjoy some tasty treats from a range of food stalls and pick up some Christmas gifts from a variety of stallholders.

A Giving Tree, where people can leave Christmas gifts to be distributed to the less fortunate, will also be available at nearby Harbour Town.

Harbour Town, in conjunction with Rotary Docklands and The Salvation Army, launched the tree on December 1. Visitors and shoppers can donate unwrapped gifts until December 24.

The Festival of Giving will raise funds for the Royal Children’s Hospital Bio-Ethics Centre.
