Supporting Very Special Kids this Christmas

It’s that time of year again! With our Fair behind us and December nearly here, Christmas activities supporting Very Special Kids are beginning and we couldn’t be feeling more cheer.

Malvern Xmas Trees

The Malvern Xmas Tree stall is again this year, selling on the grounds of Very Special Kids and they have also opened a second site in Hawthorn. Very Special Kids receives a percentage of every tree sold including their second site.

The stall will be open from Friday 30 November and they will be selling on our front lawn during the following times:

Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays from 10am

Saturday and Sunday from 7am

(Please note, they will not selling Tuesday and Thursdays)

Price inquiries, and pre-orders can be made at

Rob and Leonie’s Christmas Lights

Rob and Leonie’s Christmas Lights have been running for the last few years, and are beloved by the Beaumaris community. They convert their entire front yard into a Christmas wonderland and encourage people to enter and make a donation to Very Special Kids. They raised over $10,000 in 2017 and have been working for weeks to make this year even bigger.

They will be doing an official Switch On The Lights event on Saturday 1 December at 9pm. Everyone is invited to join us for the opening night if you are available. Otherwise, you can visit every night from 9pm until Christmas Eve.

The address of the lights is 151 Dalgetty Rd, Beaumaris. More information can be found on their Facebook here.

Bayside Council’s Carols in the Park

Very Special Kids have been chosen as the official charity partner of the Bayside Council’s Carols in the Park. We will be attending with staff and volunteers to tin rattle, sell candles, and raise awareness. The event is attended by over 20,000 people so it will be a wonderful chance to spread the word of Very Special Kids to the Bayside community.

Family activities and stalls will start from 5:30pm, with the concert beginning at 7:30pm and ending with a fireworks display at 9:30pm.

It will be held at Dendy Park in Brighton, and you can find more information here.

Waverley Garden’s Shopping Centre

Waverley Gardens Shopping Centre are supporting Very Special Kids throughout December for the second year in a row. You can visit their information desk to purchase a wishing card for $5 and write a Christmas message to our families. All money will go to supporting our familes.

We will also be running a gift wrapping stall from 15 December to 22 December, with a gold coin donations to wrap your holiday presents.
