Sydney Children’s Hospital (In-kind appearance), Sydney

"(Guest review forwarded) ?What an amazing photo! I spent $40 on a pretty ordinary one at Westfield because she didn't like the Santa, and this one she ran straight up to him and had a chat. Was a super special day for us because it was the day she finally got the all clear from hip issues that have been plaguing her since birth! So I was really kaeen to get the pic as a memento of that too! Thank so much again! We are so lucky to have such an amazing hospital just up the road?"

'Melanie' (Inkind home appearance), Melbourne:

"It was a few weeks before Christmas and I had suddenly had the wacky idea of arranging a home visit from Santa to a family friend on Christmas Eve. In my email to The Real Santa I explained that the family had lost a father and a grandmother in the space of twelve months and that they might benefit from a little Christmas cheer. Much to my amazement not only did I get a reply but an offer to shuffle Santa's busy schedule around and pay a visit to the family for free. The magic only continued when I met Santa face to face. He was just like the story: tall, with rosy cheeks and a twinkle in his eye. I felt like a kid again. I had wanted to surprise two beautiful children but instead The Real Santa and his generosity had surprised me!"

Zoos Australia (Melbourne Zoo), Parkville

"(Guest review forwarded) "We attended the zoo members Christmas party last night and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves but I just wanted to post about your santa that we visited. His tone and mannerisms were amazing, he spoke quietly and when asked my son responded. This amazing santa allowed me to achieve something I never thought possible and that is his very first photo with Santa at almost 4 1/2! He was also very accurate at guessing the ages of my children and the fact that my daughter started school this year. Wherever you found him, you need to keep him as he is special. Merry Christmas from Kirsty, Jeremy, Zoe and Anakin"

Cerebral Palsy Association/Packforce, Sydney:

"The Real Santa was wonderful. He arrived with plenty of time to spare and helped us out with getting lunch ready as the caterers were had someone call in sick at the last minute. Santa took lots of time to talk and meet each person which was wonderful - a lot of the clients are in wheelchairs and have significant communication issues, none of which phased Santa. He also stayed for longer than required and joined in the disco which was a big hit too."
