On a bright and sunny Friday morning, two sleeps until Christmas day, representatives from BossFitness and CTC, along with Santa, visited the Zhuhai Orphanage to spread a little Christmas cheer in the form of presents!!
CTC was lucky enough to receive over one hundred donated gifts from Christmas fundraisers held by BossFitness and InternChina in December. Split between the Zhuhai Orphanage and the Zhuhai Autism Society, CTC Community was delighted to be able to pass on these awesome gifts.
The children at the orphanage welcomed everyone so warmly with hugs all round and smiles from ear to ear. The morning was filled with chattering, Christmas tree decorating, singing songs, and of course – the chicken dance!
Zhuhai Orphanage is home to around 190 children ranging from a few months to 20 years old. CTC and BossFitness got to meet approximately 30 of the children, but provided gifts for around 90 of them. They each wore their Christmas headwear, ranging from Santa hats to light-up reindeer antlers while they sang and danced with huge smiles on their faces. They even joked with Santa, who had a good laugh after being fed a wasabi filled pancake sandwich!
Thanks to all who donated gifts, it definitely brightened up the children’s 2017 Christmas.
Following on from this: on the eve of Christmas Eve, BossFitness, CTC and Santa headed over to attend a party with some of the children who attend CTC funded classes through the Zhuhai Autism Society (ZAS).
Santa bought plenty of presents for all the children and all the representatives were joyous to see the smiles on their beautiful faces.
All of us here at Come Together Community wish everyone a merry Christmas and a happy New Year. We look forward to bringing you another positive and inspiring year of helping to fund some of the best organisations in Zhuhai, who are making a difference in the lives of children in the local community.
