SANTA and his elves have taken time out from their busy schedule to help raise money for less fortunate children.
Father Christmas has taken up residence at Frosts Garden Centre in Brampton to make an early start on his letters to all the children who have been good this year.
For a suggested donation of £5, Santa will write a letter to a child and will pass on the money to NSPCC to aid the charity in its work to stop child cruelty.
NSPCC community fundraising manager Sally Phipps said: "A letter from Santa is a brilliant way to add an extra sparkle to a child's Christmas.
"But it is important to remember that Christmas is not a time of celebration for every child.
"Over the 12 days of festive cheer last year, ChildLine counselled 4,756 children who were in danger or distress and had nowhere else to turn.
- 1 Horse rider injured in crash on Ramsey Road in Warboys
- 2 One arrest and cars seized on busy day for cops
- 3 Mother pays tribute to “much-loved” son who died near Fen Drayton
- 4 House fire that killed two children will not have further electrical checks
- 5 Cambridgeshire's Enhanced Area Status extended amid Covid surge in schools
- 6 Hinchingbrooke Hospital get share of £4.5m to 'improve care'
- 7 Hundreds gather to see Santa on The Quay in St Ives
- 8 Here are the new Covid travel rules which begin today
- 9 St Ives man undergoes pioneering heart treatment
- 10 Items from Lidl and Sainsbury's recalled over health and safety concerns
"Parents, grandparents, families and friends who support the letter from Santa idea will help create a safer, happier Christmas for many children."
