Rotorua we need your help! It has been a tough year for many families in our community and we want to do something special for the children who deserve a bit of magic in their lives.

We have teamed up with Reesby Buses, Rotorua Police Station, The Salvation Army, Daily Post and The Hits this year to do something spectacular.

We have 450 registered children between 0 and 16 that I (by myself) am on a mission to find Xmas presents for. I need your help to make a difference!

On Friday the 22nd of December all of the children will receive a bus ticket for their family from whereever they are in Rotorua to town then to Motion Entertainment and back. The child will also receive one free activity at Motion Entertainment, a sausage sizzle and a present from you.

Our housing situation is phenomenal and it is the children that miss out but this year they don't have to. We can work together to make a difference.

I am going to be out on the streets visiting businesses this week to get as many presents as I can but I need the community to help me. We will wrap all the presents for you and make sure you receive a star on our community spirit wall as you enter Motion the week leading into Xmas.

Please help me make a difference! You can drop your presents from now until Monday next week to reception at Motion Entertainment Rotorua.

We need you Rotorua! Any questions please email me at julia(at)
