Hundreds of families flocked to Haskins for a special Kids Christmas evening on 5 December. There were spade loads of activities to choose from in the Longham garden centre, including live music, a teddy bear hunt, personalised baubles and Christmas log services, placemat colouring and laminating and of course Santa. Over 150 children went to see him in his grotto and many posted letters in a special posting box.
For those with an appetite, a special Christmas restaurant menu fitted the bill.
There was a photo shoot and parents also had the opportunity to take pictures of their children with pantomime characters including the ugly sisters and princess as well as Storm Troopers from Star Wars.
General manager, Simon Morris said, “We had a fantastically well supported event and raised a considerable amount of money for our chosen charity ‘partner’ for 2013, Diverse Abilities Plus.
