Macie & Rurie’s big day out!

The Blantyre Festive event delighted many families yesterday with feedback showing just how much people, especially children, enjoyed themselves.

Two children who had a great time were Macie (6) and her brother Rurie Holler (2). The lucky kids were invited up on stage alongside Santa to switch on the entire town’s Christmas lights, jointly pressing the big button! After being presented with gifts, they posed for photos with Santa. The kids join just a handful of children in Blantyre who can say they’ve done this.

Macie and Rurie were chosen by random in our competition last month.

Their mother Louise told us today, “I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and everyone involved at the Blantyre Community Committee. You have all given my children the most magical start to Christmas! Also, we are overwhelmed with the gifts they both received. It just goes to show the kindness and generosity of the community. I can’t possibly say anymore other than you made two children extremely happy. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas.”
