Christmas cheer for kids

The children from St Annes Home in Woodstock relaxed with their meals after a long day of fun.

De Waal Park came alive with the sound of laughter on Friday December 7 as children from various pre-schools in disadvantaged communities around the city enjoyed a morning of fun and games at the annual Christmas party hosted by Cape Community Newspapers (CCN), which publishes Souther Suburbs Tatler.

The highlight of the day was when “Father Christmas” made his appearance.

He was greeted with much joy and delight and handed the children their gifts prepared by the CCN team.

“Our annual children’s Christmas party is a highlight on our calendar of events and we are incredibly grateful to all the staff who volunteer their time to assist, as well as the generous sponsors who make it possible for us to
treat the children to entertainment, food and a special gift from Father Christmas,” said Cape Community Newspapers editor Chantel Erfort.

“This year’s sponsors included Pizza Hut, KFC, Mega Coach and Springbok Atlas bus companies, Giant Hyper, Cape Cookies, Food Lovers Market, College of Magic, Age Africa and Little Green Beverages.”

The children hosted at this year’s party were from Adventure Kids Club, Vuka-Nomntobhoyi Centre, Al Noor orphanage, Ikhwezi Development Centre, Holy Cross Child Care Centre and St Anne’s Home.
