Montecasino hosts kids’ Christmas party


Montecasino has been one of the WSPCCA’s supporters from the very inception of the project and this year has been no different.

Despite heavy rain, this year’s children’s Christmas party went ahead with the children and their parents being treated to a showing of High School Musical 3, lunch at Spur and presents from Santa.

Thanks have to go to Lynda’s assistant, Patsy Hartley, and Montecasino’s PR manager, Jacqui Mabuza, who orchestrated the event beautifully.

As part of the party, each child was given the opportunity to wish for a gift before the party and every effort was made by Montecasino to ensure that Santa delivered the correct present on the day.
