Nelson Mandela Bay Executive Mayor Nceba Faku will be visiting various shopping centres and childrens homes in Nelson Mandela Bay on 21, 22, 23 December to spread some festive cheer and goodwill.
Dressed in the traditional, jolly Father Christmas outfit, he will travel by bright red fire engine – instead of the traditional reindeer-drawn sleigh – to visit the boys and girls and hand out gifts.
Mayor Faku will pose for photographs with children at selected shopping centres. The shopping centres usually have an area set up for this and the respective centre managements have been approached for permission for him to act as Father Christmas for a two-hour slot.
After their photograph each child will receive a gift.
Details for the festive campaign are:
Wednesday, 21 December:
10am to 12pm Shoprite, Uitenhage
12.15pm to 1.30pm Uitenhage Taxi Rank
2pm to 3.30pm Shoprite, Despatch
