Held at MacCabe Park on December 3, Santa turned up on a fire engine with the bell ringing and handed out gift bags donated by local businesses to delighted children.

The smiles on their faces said it all and the children, along with about 200 adults, had a great time at the Christmas party enjoying a sausage sizzle and drinks, rides, jumping castles, slides, Matilda’s Farmyard, face-painting, clowns and games with prizes. The barbecue was run by Rotarians.

The annual event is provided by The Housing Trust free of charge to its residents and families, as well as clients of partner agencies – Wollongong Women’s Refuge, Wollongong Homeless Hub and St Vincent de Paul.

“The Christmas party provides an opportunity for our residents to take some time out, relax and have a bit of fun,” The Housing Trust operations manager, Chris Lacey, said.

“Our dedicated staff know how much the party means to our tenants … it is our way of saying thank-you to each of our residents for taking great care of their homes and for bringing people together.”

The Housing Trust has been supporting low-income Illawarra families for more than 30 years. It provides subsidised rental homes to more than 2000 people from Helensburgh to Kiama.
