SANTA and his elves are going to make a life-sized toy Santa, which he will send to Scone so the children can still have Santa photos this Christmas.
The doppelgänger Santa will have magical powers so that all of the children’s Christmas wishes will be sent directly to the real Santa, back at the North Pole.
Yesterday, Santa told the Scone Neighbourhood Resource Centre he will be stuck at home this year with Mrs Claus, because of COVID-19 travel restrictions.
The SNRC are now raising funds to help pay for the elves wages and North Pole postage, so they can get Santa’s doppelgänger into Australia and across the New South Wales border.
Lee Watts, SNRC Manager, said although she is sad Santa cant make it this year, she is grateful that he had the genius idea to make a look a like version of himself to send instead.
“We would like to see all our beautiful children getting their photo with the magic Santa in front of our magnificent Christmas scene,” Mrs Watts said.
“We have arranged a donation system through ‘sticky tickets,’ where people can choose the amount they would like to donate, if they are in a position to do so,” she said.
