SANTA’S COVID CHRISTMAS – A Keepsake of the Year, 2020 

Judy Martin of Lexton wrote this beautiful children’s Christmas book as a keepsake of how the world was impacted during Covid-19 in 2020. The illustrations inside the book were all done by a local artist and past Waubra Primary School student, 14 year old Ballarat High School student Roza Mac who made Judy’s story come to life! Judy and Roza are proud to offer this book to our community as a fundraiser.


All orders and monies need to be returned to the office by Friday 26th November.  Books will be delivered by week 10.
