A FITTER than usual Santa Claus has come to town. He is doing without his sleigh and reindeer and instead is spreading good will around Central's busy streets along with a team of skaters. On Saturday, the man in red was delivering gifts to 61 children at the Mother's Choice home in Mid-Levels. He passed on four Christmas hampers full of cheese, chocolates, sweets and soft toys which had been put together by the staff of Quo Quo restaurant. And the children, aged three and under, greeted them with wide eyed-delight before devouring the contents. Quo Quo's general manager, Rogier Verhoeven, said Mother's Choice - which was begun eight years ago by a band of people concerned about pressure put on women to have late-term abortions - was an ideal recipient for the hampers. The idea followed the restaurant's decision to set up a delivery service over the festive period. 'With so much traffic on the roads we found that using roller skates was the fastest way of getting the hampers through,' said Mr Verhoeven. And Mother's Choice supervisor Loretta Roberts said the hampers would be 'thank-yous' to staff as well as a source of joy for the children. 'We are having a Christmas party on Tuesday so the goodies the children can't consume, such as a couple of bottles of wine, will be enjoyed by staff,' she said. More than half the 50 staff are full-time volunteers.
