Christmas starts early with parties for Life’s children
Alida de Beer
Every year the 1 000 children who are part of the Life Community Services programmes receive Christmas gifts sponsored by members of the community.
To accommodate every child several Christmas parties were held, with the last three taking place from Monday to Wednesday at the Life premises in Main Road, Parkdene.
A Christmas tree, a huge jumping castle, games, snacks, gifts and singing together were all part of the activities that made it a delightful, memorable day. The Eden congregation and Glenwood House also helped this year, hosting parties for two groups of the children.
Ready to board. Some of the children with their specially made “tickets” to board their respective aeroplanes.
Here we go! Moments before one of the children went on a flight.
Children were given rides in dream sports cars.
Games were part of the party.
