CHRISTMAS trees decorated by schools, businesses and charities are currently giving Ronaldsway Airport a festive feel.

They’re part of the 11th annual festival of trees, which is raising money for Save the Children’s work abroad.

Save the Children’s island vice-president Rosemary Walters said: ‘We have been delighted to have so many schools involved. It’s very much appreciated that they are helping children from other parts of the world.

Last year the event raised £8,500.

Visitors to the airport are asked to donate money in envelopes and to vote for their favourite exhibit.

The most popular wins the travellers’ award. There is also the Ted Haley Trophy given to the exhibitor who raises the most additional funds.

A third prize is given to an independently-judged contest to find the best exhibit.

There are 21 exhibitors involved in this year’s festival.
