Carols by Candlelight celebrates giving

People are encouraged to bring your picnic blankets or camping chairs to sit on during the Spar OFM Carols by Candlelight on 4 December 2019.

SPAR and OFM invite you to be part of Central South Africa’s most magical charity night under the stars on 4 December 2019. The SPAR OFM Carols by Candlelight concert, featuring Kurt Darren, Leah, Monique Steyn and the Soweto Gospel Choir will take place at the Kovsie Cricket Oval in Bloemfontein.

According to OFM Marketing Manager, Lindiwe Mtwentula, the event is a celebration of the spirit of giving during the festive season. “This a Spar initiative in collaboration with OFM to celebrate Christmas, but most importantly its purpose is to collect food and toys for the less fortunate. Thus making sure that children have a special Christmas like any other child in Central South Africa,” she said.

People can look forward to a wide range of family entertainment, including a children’s movie screening before the concert begins. “There will be loads of kiddies’ entertainment, including colouring-in, balloon sculpting, face painting, Santa and more, in the dedicated children’s areas,” explained Mtwentula.

“A movie screening of Sing will also be taking place ahead of the event. Food stalls will be available but you are also welcome to bring your own snacks to enjoy on the evening. Remember to bring your picnic blankets or camping chairs to sit on,” she added.

For admission, bring an unwrapped gift such as toys, care packages or stationery appropriate for ages from 0 to 18 years. Donations like canned food are welcome as well. The SPAR OFM Carols by Candlelight concert will also be held in Potchefstroom on the 26th of November.

*Please note: No glass or open fires will be permitted at the events.
