The idea started ten years ago when Senwes personnel wanted to make a change and to warm the hearts of a few less fortunate children and differently-abled persons. The party has grown over the years to a huge event. 
The event is made possible by generous sponsors across the board sponsoring either in cash or kind. Sponsorships included inter alia tents, chairs, transport, food, drinks, sound and staging.
Senwes staff made a huge contribution by buying a Christmas gift of the children’s choice for each of the 590 children from their pockets. These children are representative of 8 different institutions in the Matlosana area and one from Viljoenskroon.
Ms. Elmarie Joynt, Managing Trustee of Thobo Trust (Senwes CSI) and patron of the Christmas party, said: “It was so overwhelming to experience the happiness on the faces of the children and grown-ups when they saw Santa Claus coming in with the gifts on a JCB. Even more the joy when they received and opened up their gifts”. Some of the sponsors were Steers (local franchise), giving every person (600) at the party a burger. Roman’s Pizza (local franchise) giving 900 pizzas at discounted prizes. “We wish to thank all our sponsors for their generous contributions” Elmarie added.
