Christmas celebrations support people, planet and prosperity

Christmas celebrations support people, planet and prosperity

Claremont Town Centre’s annual Christmas activations on Saturday 9 December will complement traditional activities with a sustainable element that embraces its people and prosperity as well as encouraging sustainability.

The debut of the Claremont Town Centre’s keep cup tree will see the gift of reusable coffee cups. Patrons who give a donation to the Salvation Army’s Christmas Appeal, will receive a re-usable keep cup from the Town of Claremont’s Keep Cup Christmas tree. In addition, each hour between 10am and 2pm, 50 free coffee/hot chocolate vouchers will be given out, to be redeemed at Claremont’s responsible cafes.

Mayor Barker said that the Claremont was a community of great generosity, encouraging sustainability and supporting their local businesses.

“As our coffee culture grows, so does the waste through the use of disposable takeaway cups. We have cafes in Claremont doing their best to encourage customers to bring in their reusable cup and help reduce the current national figure of three billion takeaway cups a year going to landfill,” said Mayor Barker. "This activation will gift a cup to those that want to help the Salvation Army Appeal, our planet and proactive business members."

To liven the Town Centre and invigorate festive spirits, the Perth Choral Institute’s Christmas Boot Camp will be performing carols at the Town Square at 11am and Bayview Terrace at 11.30am. Up to 50 participants will perform festive favourites in four-part harmonies.

"This will be a very exciting event and is a great gift to our community and visitors to the shopping precinct,” Mayor Barker said.

The trees and Salvation Army volunteers will be located at Bayview Terrace and Tutti Frutti in St Quentin Ave, where free face painting by the Freedom Fairies will also be available between 10am and 2pm. Back To News Stories
