An old Santa Claus display from a Winnipeg shopping centre has raised $5,000 for the Children’s Rehabilitation Foundation.

Kildonan Place unloaded its “Santa’s Christmas Cabin” display a few weeks ago on Kijiji. The initial ask on the 11-year-old display was for $2,000, with any funds exceeding that price going towards the CRF.

The mall accepted a bid of $7,000 and presented a cheque to the foundation on Friday in the amount of $5,000.

The cabin was picked up earlier this week and will find itself in another shopping centre in Saskatchewan next Christmas season.
