The 2014 North Shore Community Centre, Sunshine Coast, Australia Christmas Celebration which we sponsored was on Saturday and with over two thousand people stopping by to join in all the community Christmas cheer, close to $6,000 dollars was raised for IFYS (Integrated Family Youth Services). Many kind donations of gift wrapped presents were also placed under the Christmas tree from local families to go through to our families in need.
The centre’s main hall hosted more than 20 local market stall holders selling Craft, Christmas treats, Jams, Pickles, Clothing, Home Wares , Candles, Pottery & many more gift ideas. The Pacific Paradise State School choir sang Christmas carols and the festive vibe continued with the live DJ playing Christmas tunes throughout the day. Free Christmas arts & crafts were also available for the for the little ones as well as three huge Jumping Castles, face painters and a balloonist – twisting balloons into characters for all the kids.
The biggest attraction of the day was of course was Santa, who arrived in a Becker Helicopters Pty Ltd and treated the kids to a massive lolly scramble which was also loads of fun.Share
