BREAKFAST with Santa and Mrs Claus proved appetising for about 200 children this month.
The couple and cheeky elves entertained children at festive breakfasts in Ocean Keys Shopping Centre on December 6 and 13.
The events included story times, sing-a-longs and food, with $2000 raised for the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation.
The Clarkson centre’s manager Karen Draper said while only one event was originally planned for December 6, popularity and demand saw another scheduled for the 13th.
“The support from the community has been wonderful, it allowed us to double the amount raised for the PMH Foundation than we had originally anticipated,” Ms Draper said.
“It’s always a brilliant atmosphere and while likely unaware of it, each child who attended the breakfast events was supporting a very worthy cause, just by being there enjoying themselves.”
