Remember the children at Christmas time

Friday, December 20, 2013
Bearing gifts, Santa is mobbed by the children of Sea Lots.

Christmas is the time of year when giving and cheering is uppermost in most people’s minds. It is the time when individuals and organisations host treats, featuring a variety of Santa Claus look alikes, for children, especially the nation’s underprivileged.


Last week, despite inclement weather on the Wednesday, the Lady Hochoy Home hosted its Annual Christmas Concert, at the St James Amphitheatre from 5 pm. The event featured the students of the home and special guest artiste—H2O Phlo.


It has been 17 years that Ma Pau has hosted the children of Sea Lots with an Annual Children Christmas Party, In keeping with its traditions, the club hosted and catered for 400-plus children at Sea Lots. There was entertainment by popular artistes, including Umi Marcano, who contributed their time to the children’s enjoyment. 


Santa Claus arrived in grand style and was overwhelmed with eager children waiting for their presents. Face painting and a Bouncy Castle were some of the activities that were provided for the little ones. Snacks, refreshments, apples, grapes flowed freely for those that attended. 


In similar spirt, a fortnight ago, Team Hope (How Ordinary People do Extraordinary things) treated the children of St Elizabeth Centre to a workshop on making Christmas decorations.
