The magician, Nigel Kennedy, was eagerly anticipated and did not fail to entertain with balloon magic and the appearance of Mr. Rabbit. He made Callum into an alien. Abigail treated us to her magic words and became a swan. Sophie with her Xmas glasses became a flower.

You know the expression, 'You just had to be there'?

Ashton's reward, as the Magician knighted him Sir Ashton with the balloon sword, was a delighted giggle.

Sullivan received an outstanding motorbike.

Mya was wonderful with the Santa puzzle and all the Magician's helpers took a bow.

The audience showed their appreciation and lined up for a gentle pat of Mr. Rabbit who'd been enjoying the fun from his position on top of his cage.

Alan introduced Santa and the Christmas Fairy who delighted the children with gifts. The audience was rewarded with a lovely meal with special boxes for the children.

President Euon thanked Allan, Barbara, Harold the Giraffe (visiting courtesy of Life Education Trust), Santa and Santa’s Fairy and wished everyone a very safe and Merry Christmas.

🎁Christmas Giveaway🎁👏👏👏
I have 8 children and they are fortunate enough to enjoy presents and great food every Christmas...that got me thinking there are people here in New Zealand who don’t eat great food on Christmas Day, don’t receive presents and Santa just doesn’t come, all because they cannot afford it. I feel like it’s time for me and my little business to do my part so......
I have decided to run a competition where you write into me telling me of a family that you know who deserves a special Christmas. We will arrive on Christmas morning with presents, a Christmas grazing table and genuine Christmas cheer. If you want to donate a gift, or food items please email me Belle@platter.co.nz
This isn’t about likes or share it’s about giving.
To enter please email me at belle@platter.co.nz before 15th December. Let’s make someone’s day, it is after all the season of giving 😍🎁😍.
