THE Synergy Christmas Elves are set to energise Mandurah on Saturday, December 2 as part of the Synergy Xmas Lights Trail while encouraging the community to look out for each other in the festive season.
Celebrating one of WA’s best loved traditions, the elves will perform a musical Christmas show to encourage families across Mandurah to support Lifeline WA’s Christmas appeal, Shine a Light for Life.
Lifeline WA executive officer Lorna McGregor said the festive season was Lifeline’s busiest time of the year.
“It’s important to be mindful of how people in our lives are coping and letting them know they should never have to feel alone and help is always available,’’ she said.
Synergy marketing manager Kelley Yates said the lights trail provided a unique opportunity for Western Australians to raise money for Lifeline WA.
“As the sun begins to set in Mandurah, we hope families will come and watch our elves perform and take part in the activities and competitions at our tiny solar Christmas home,’’ she said.
Synergy is also offering prizes for decorators wanting to take part in the Christmas lights competition.
Photos of houses can be uploaded to the Xmas Lights Trail website with public voting starting at the end of November.
The Synergy Christmas Elves perform on the eastern foreshore at 6.15pm.
