It’s time again for Uncle Jumbo’s Christmas Party

2016-11-23 06:00

IT is that time of the year again when the Rotaract Club of Port Elizabeth puts together the Uncle Jumbo’s Christmas Party.

The party is the club’s biggest fundraiser of the year. For those who are unfamiliar with the party, every year Uncle Jumbo, Noddy and his friends from Toyland put on a show, along with Father Christmas, Tinkerbell, a marching band, and numerous other characters.

Parents get to relax on hay bales while kids play and dance with the clowns and Uncle Jumbo. The proceeds from the show allow the club to treat children from orphanages to a meal and Christmas present, as well as funding all their charity initiatives for the rest of the year.

During Uncle Jumbo’s, they sell food, cool drinks, coffee and hot chocolate to the public to raise extra money. Anything that can be donated is a big help to the club.

They also hand out hampers of chocolates as lucky draw prizes for parents on each night. The show will run for two weeks.

The Rotaract club of Port Elizabeth is a non-profit organisation that does work in and around the Port Elizabeth region. They do various projects that help the disadvantaged and the needy in the area.

Uncle Jumbo’s Christmas Party is their fundraiser and all profits go to charity in different forms. Port Elizabeth’s Geek Convention company,

Con.ect, has partnered with the Rotaract Club of PE as part of their corporate social responsibility and to bring more characters and a more exciting programme to this year’s Uncle Jumbo’s Christmas Party.

An invitation-only charity show will take place on November 27 which is dedicated to underprivileged children.

The rest of the shows will run from November 25 to December 11 at DF Malherbe High School.

Tickets at R50 per adult and R60 per child are available at Computicket.
