Shoppers to spree for a good cause

A NOVEL concept for Christmas shopping will take to the streets of Coffs Harbour next month – and it’s all for a worthy cause.

To celebrate the 30th birthday of the Make a Wish Foundation, volunteers of the Coffs Harbour branch are organising a late-night Christmas shopping spree at a range of local shops.

Branch president Emma Rhoades said the social event would provide an opportunity for people to get some Christmas shopping out of the way, while enjoying a night out with friends.

“It’s a way for people to do some Christmas shopping together, to support our local businesses and raise money for charity all at the same time,” she said.

People can register a team for the night with each team receiving 15 minutes to spend in a shop before moving onto the next one.

Each shop will open exclusively for the night and will provide discounts and special offers.

The cost of entry is $10 with all funds supporting the Make a Wish Foundation.

Shops signed up for the event so far include ZAB Designs, Blue Illusion, Little Einstein, Antipode, Pushkar, Fletchers and Fotographics.

The event will be held from 6.30pm on December 11. To register, call 0430 535 487 or 0414 514 837 or email emmarhoades@gmail.com. For further details visit www.facebook.com/events/137473123275558/
