Santa Claus helped members of the North Cyprus Cancer Charity Trust (NCCCT) deliver some seasonal cheer to youngsters at the Karakum Special Needs School on last Thursday.
There was a present labelled for each of the 17 pupils and they were handed out by Santa.
The annual campaign has previously been sponsored, but in the absence of a sponsor this year the gifts were bought by NCCCT committee members in order to give the children a festive boost.
NCCCT chairman Angela Hasman said: “The children were so excited. They were thrilled when they saw Santa Claus and the gifts.
“We were so pleased to see the children’s happiness.”
