Local businesses will be helping Santa spread joy for the second year with a Christmas Eve run through South Penrith, Jamisontown and Cranebrook.

Organiser Kate Clarke said 17 businesses have come together to once again hit the streets to hand out lollies and small gifts to kids.

“It was so successful last year but after the year we’ve had to endure I didn’t think we would get it off the ground but the sponsors have dug deep to make it happen,” she said.

“We have more businesses on board, about 900 gifts and lollies, plus we have gift bags for our furry friends this year too, thanks to City Country Pets.”

The Kenno’s and Transport truck will kick off in Cranebrook from 2pm for a few stops before heading to South Penrith and Jamisontown from around 4pm.

“We are including a quick trip around Cranebrook this year thanks to Jasmyn Calgaro from Ray White,” Ms Clarke said.

“This year we will throw lollies as we drive around the street, but if people want a present they need to look at our route map online to see the gift stops they can go to.”
