Don’t miss Santa’s visit to the St Francis Bay Canals

Santa on the Canals is an annual fundraising event held by NSRI Station 21 – St Francis Bay. On Christmas eve, each year, Santa delivers gifts in person with the help of the NSRI Station 21 crew and their boat – Spirit of St. Francis II.

Here are some facts to assist you in making your kids part of Santa on the Canals

  • When and where – do we (the parents/ grandparents/ aunts & uncles) drop off the presents?
    Parents can drop off presents at the NSRI Lecture Room in Port St Francis on Saturday 23rd December between 11am – 4pm. Hard working Elves sort and pack presents into color coded piles ready for Santa’s delivery. All presents must be wrapped and clearly marked with the receiver’s name and erf number (if you can).
  • Is there a limit on the value of present I may purchase?
    No, we do however ask parents to get practical gifts considering they will be delivered via boat.

    Santa & his elves deliver the presents on the 24th December 2017. – CHRISTMAS EVE from 9am.
  • What time will Santa be at my house?
    When parents drop off the presents at the NSRI Lecture Room on the 23rd December 2016, the Elves will be able to provide all parents & grandparents with approximates on times for the delivery.

    No Problem, Santa’s first stop on the 24th December 2016 is The Cove (Shore Road) at 9am where he gets off the boat and hands out presents to children (and sometimes grownups too!)

    A donation of R60.00 per present – it’s for a good cause!
