Those scouting for Christmas trees in the Sunbury area are in luck.

The 3rd Sunbury Scouts Group is selling Christmas trees to raise money to help it continue to prosper.

Joey leader Marlo Aisbett said the Christmas tree sale, in its 12th year, was the group’s biggest fundraising event of the year.

“It’s a great thing for the community to get trees and it’s great for the Scouts,” she said.

Ms Aisbett said money raised would go towards programs and repairs on the Scout hall.

“It goes straight to the Scout group,” Ms Aisbett said. “It goes towards maintenance on the hall, leader training, camps and to youth members.”

Tree prices start from $50. They can be picked up at Max Gifford Hall, 8 Miller Street, Sunbury, on Saturday, December 8, between 9am-3pm.

Delivery is also available to the Sunbury, Diggers Rest, Bulla, Riddells Creek, Gisborne and Woodend areas.
