Having a ball in the mall

RAISING money for Melbourne’s Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal, Kids Day was staged in the Sale mall on Saturday.

Children were delighted by a carousel, jumping castles, an inflatable slide, a mechanical bull, miniature train, animal nursery, laughing clowns, fairy floss, liquorice stall, face painting, Easter craft, plaster painting and showbags.

There were also football, netball and Hot Shots tennis activities, vehicle displays, a State Emergency Service display, live music, a dance display and a martial arts demonstration.

Other highlights included the unveiling and handover of the Wellington Community Car to the Victoria Police Proactive Unit and a flypast by two Air Force Pilatus PC-21 aircraft.
