The Salvation Army’s "The Wonder of Christmas" opened in Dunedin last night.

Dunedin City Salvation Army corps captain Ralph Hargest said 60 Christmas trees were on display at the event.

The donated materials the trees were made from ranged from teddy bears to canned food and would be given to people next week for Christmas.

The avenue of trees will be on display to the public at the corp’s Crawford St headquarters between 7pm and 9pm tonight and tomorrow,  and between 1pm and 4pm tomorrow.

The cost of entry was a can donation for the "depleted" foodbank, he said.

"It’s something nice to look at and it helps our foodbank out as well."
