We are so excited to be a chosen charity for this year’s Christmas Grotto in The Belfry, Redhill. We’re going to be on hand on Saturday 18th November as “Strictly-Royalty” James and Ola Jordan switch the lights on! Stripey has his Strictly inspired outfit all ready to go and you’re sure to give him a 10! You can come and say hello to him and our team on the lower mall, where we’ll have details of the present requests on our list still to be fulfilled and you can buy a gift and return it that day – simple! You can also drop off any gifts and stocking fillers you’ve already collected. We’ll have thank you certificates and activity packs for any children supporting our Christmas campaign too.
The fun starts at 2pm with free family entertainment, including a performance from James and Ola who will also be switching on the Christmas Lights at 5pm, with the chance for photo opportunities and autographs afterwards.
The Grotto is going to be alongside M&S on the lower mall this year and we can’t wait to see what it’s like when it opens on 2nd December. As in previous years, the Grotto will be free to enter with donations to charity welcomed. In line with our beliefs as a charity serving families experiencing difficulties for a variety of different reasons, it’s a pleasure to be associated with a Grotto that is fully inclusive for all. Andy Nash, Belfry Centre Manager said: “We enjoy working with the Stripey Stork team, and we’re pleased to be supporting them again this year. We’re always touched by the stories that the team share, and know the work they do has a positive impact in the local community.”
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
