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 Eight Huntingdon children handed anti-social behaviour interventions
- 2 A1 set for night-time and weekend closures until August
- 3 Meet the Sassy Lassies cycling group encouraging women in Huntingdonshire to ride
- 4 Suspected case of bird flu in swan reported to DEFRA
- 5 7 of the most beautiful churches in Cambridgeshire
- 6 Police check home of 101-year-old animal rights patron for stolen beagles
- 7 Site cleared after 'grenade' prompts alarm
- 8 Part of The Busway set for weekend closure with diversions near St Ives
- 9 New homes plan for Huntingdonshire village
- 10 A "determined" Huntingdon man takes on Everest after a double lung transplant
"Parents, grandparents, families and friends who support the letter from Santa idea will help create a safer, happier Christmas for many children."
