On Sunday 3 December the streets of Darwin and Palmerston will come alive to the sounds of sirens and horns as the annual Taskforce Santa gets under way.

NTPFES is proud to partner with Mix104.9 and all our colleagues who work in the defence and first response space in this event, where we collect unwrapped donations of food, toys, clothes and cash for Territorians who are doing it tough this Christmas.

Last year we received hundreds of donations and raised several thousand dollars that were donated to local charities - this year we're looking to go BIGGER.

We'll kick off the parade at Rosebery Middle School and finish up outside the George Brown Botanic Gardens in time for Carols by Candlelight.

Along the way, we'll make the following stops for about 10-15 minutes at each location (please note times are approximate):

  • 1:00pm depart Rosebery Middle School
  • 1:20pm Durack Primary School
  • 1:50pm Manunda Terrace Primary School
  • 2:20pm Leanyer Primary School
  • 2:45pm Jingili Water Gardens
  • 3:20pm Mitchell Street
  • 3:45pm arrive Darwin Botanic Gardens

So share the Christmas spirit, come on down to one of our stops and make a donation on Sunday 3 December 2017.
