Christmas party

Cleo Oliver, from Unity in Christ Educare, had her face painted by Monique Uys.

Cape Community Newspapers threw a Christmas party, at De Waal Park in Oranjezicht on Friday December 6, for children from underprivileged communities. The children were entertained with games and magicians from The College of Magic. They had their faces painted and the City of Cape Town’s Fire and Rescue Service let the children explore a fire truck. No Christmas party would be complete without Father Christmas, and he did not disappoint. Apart from enjoying snacks and lunch, the children also each received a Christmas present.

A total of 180 children took part. They came from All Saints Educare in Makhaza, Khayelitsha; Nkosiyazi Educare in Harare, Khayelitsha; Izibele Eduare in Mfuleni; Unity in Christ Educare in Tafelsig, Mitchell’s Plain; Solomons Haven, in New Woodlands, Mitchell’s Plain, and Little Lighthouse Daycare, in Hanover Park. The sponsors included the City of Cape Town’s Fire and Rescue Service, Rozario Brown, DStv Mitchell’s Plain Festival in Association with the Plainsman, KFC, Rohloff Group, Goal Supermarket, College of Magic, Hip Hip Hooray, Daniel Schmidhauser, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, One Up Cash & Carry, Cape Cookies, Food Lover’s Market, Zee Zee’s Halaal Foods, and TRS Events.
