Christmas is just around the corner! Here are a few ways you can spread some festive cheer and support Very Special Kids at the same time.
Malvern Xmas Trees
The team from Malvern Xmas Trees are back this year, selling trees from the grounds of Very Special Kids and also a second site in South Yarra. Very Special Kids receives a percentage of every tree sold from both sites.
You can choose your tree in person 7 days a week until Wednesday 23 December or order online with delivery available. For opening hours and more details, please visit ww.malvernxmastrees.com.au.
NOTE – Christmas Trees have sold out! Many thanks to all who supported us by buying a tree this year!
Kurunjang Christmas Lights
For the third year, the Greenland family are hosting a spectacular light display, programmed and synchronised to Christmas music. The show will run for the following times (weather permitting):
45pm to 10.30pm Sunday to Thursday nights
45pm to 11pm Friday and Saturday nights
The show will run until 11.30pm every night for the last week leading up to Christmas Eve
Around 430 parents, siblings and children supported by Very Special Kids attended the Family Christmas Party on Sunday 22 November for a day of family fun.
Soaring and tumbling on the Aero Bounce proved to be a highlight of the day, with children also enjoying the animal farm, craft activities, DJ workshops, a Liberty Swing, footy throws and face painting.
The arrival of Santa was highly anticipated and, on a firetruck provided by the Malvern East and Windsor Metropolitan Fire Brigade, certainly didn’t diasppoint. Families also had photos with Santa in the ‘Santa Cave’ and family portraits provided to families free of charge by Heartfelt Photography.
The annual Very Special Kids Family Christmas Party enables families of children with life-threatening conditions to come together in a safe and supportive environment.
The Family Christmas Party would not have been possible without the support of 42 of our dedicated team of trained volunteers. Special thanks also to the Malvern East and Windsor Metropolitan Fire Brigade and Heartfelt Photography for their ongoing support.
