Santa Drops By ...
Santa was kind enough to give up some of his preparation time in December to say `hello’ to his many fans and help us collect money for our Christmas appeal. As well as appearing at our usual venues, he took the time to travel round the streets of Thatcham bringing festive cheer and a big Ho,Ho,Ho to those who turned out to meet him!
The photo shows Santa admiring Christmas decorations at one of his stops (and getting a few ideas for decorating his workshop, no doubt!)
Thanks to your generosity, we were able to deliver 100 store vouchers to local families to help them at what can be an expensive time of year.
.. and some extra cheer!
To make Christmas a little happier for children spending Christmas in the refuge, we made up stockings using donated toys and funds. Here are some of the thank you letters we received.
