Uncle Paul's Christmas Party
Uncle Paul’s is a Christmas Party which is hosted annually by the Rotaract Club of Wynberg. It has become Wynberg Rotaract’s main fundraiser, bringing in money which is then used for community projects throughout the following year.
The magic starts the second you step foot on the tractors which take you up to the arena, facing a beautiful castle which acts as the stage for the evening. The children play in the straw until all the guests are in the arena with a comfortable place to sit. Then evening starts off with a bang, as everyone gets up to follow the marching band around the arena, singing along to the tune. Beverages are handed out, and once everyone is settled, Noddy makes an appearance with his friends, bringing Ice creams for everyone.
After the ice creams are quickly devoured, the children play around with Noddy, Big Ears, Raggedy-Anne, My Plod and the clowns. Once the characters go back to Toyland, a piano is brought into the arena, and carols are sung, led by Uncle Paul. The crowd sings Father Christmas’ favourite carol, Silent Night, and then silence comes over the arena and a fairy appears. She brings along sweets for all the girls and boys, and Father Christmas comes too, bringing presents for every child.
This magical evening ends off with coffee served for the parents, while everyone boards the tractors and heads off home. A lot of work is put into making Uncle Paul’s a success, and with the support we receive from all the guests every year, Wynberg Rotaract is able to continue serving the community, year after year.
