Santa’s annual whirlwind helicopter tour of five B.C. hospitals in a single day touched down in New Westminster Tuesday afternoon. After visiting hospitals in Victoria, Nanaimo, Vancouver and Surrey, the Jolly Old Elf and one of his faithful helpers (Sabrina Preziosa) finished off the yearly toy run at Royal Columbian Hospital. Put on every year by BC Emergency Health Services and Helijet, the tour is designed to bring extra holiday cheer to children and their families spending the holiday season in hospital. At RCH, Santa handed out teddy bears and chatted with staff, parents and kids in the pediatric and maternity units.
