Adults will receive a Hot Chocolate and treat on us


Children will receive a festive gift pack, including; Santa letter, Christmas door hanger, festive activity sheet, magical reindeer dust and a Christmas treat.


We have some amazing fundraising incentives too!


Feel free to wear your own costume; elves, Santa reindeer, turkeys are all welcome – in fact anything Christmassy! We have a prize for the best festive dress.


The great thing about doing it in your local community is that you can include your 4 legged fury friends – we’ve had some great dog selfies who have been doing their bit for charity.
