Charities to benefit from Christmas in Mount Pleasant

2017-11-22 06:01

ULTIMATE Life Ministries, in conjunction with the Ark Centre PE, is preparing to host the second annual Christmas in Mount Pleasant next month.

The charity fundraising event was launched last year and held in aid of CANSA. This year, however, the organisers decided to hold the event in aid of several animal charities, including the AWS, AACL, Cat Care and the EC Horse Care Unit.

There will be refreshments for sale, as well as a bring-and-braai. Santa will also be handing out presents that parents deliver beforehand and the children can enjoy the jumping castles, face painting and other activities.

According to Pastor Michael Hutchinson of Ultimate Life Ministries, they will not be lighting the tree this year at the event due to the sun setting too late. Instead, they will have a large 6m tall Christmas tree, which attending individuals are encouraged to decorate with handmade decorations.

“As this is a non-profit event, we are asking the community and businesses for their support in donating or sponsoring this event. We ask for donations of animal food, hay and other items for the charities. We are also looking for volunteers to help out at the event,” Hutchinson said.

This year’s Christmas in Mount Pleasant will take place on December 2 in the park in Gladys Road from 2pm to 6pm. Entry is R10 per adult and R5 per child.
