The cost of £5.00 per child to see Santa includes a good chat and a gift. All profits go to our local special needs school Thriftwood.

This School specialties in teaching pupils with moderate learning difficulties and additional complex needs. This Christmas event is one of the biggest fundraising events for Thriftwood, so please come and see Santa at Abercorn.
