Festive city-goers celebrated a socially distanced tree lighting at City Hall last night highlighted by a Corporation donation of $5,000 to autism charity Tomorrow’s Voices.

Charles Gosling, the Mayor, lit the tree at around 6.45pm while councillor Henry Ming presented a cheque to the charity, which had had the honour of putting the final decoration on the tree a day earlier.

Children were then allowed to make their Christmas wishes to Santa Claus, albeit from a distance.
