Santadays NSPCC Charity Day

Santadays (Colchester Travel), teamed up with Debenhams  on Saturday 17th November 2007 to celebrate the arrival of Santa into their store, and to collect money for the NSPCC (Debenhams chosen charity for the year).

Rudi and Hal

The day started early with a tour of Colchester by open top bus, with Santa leading the way, and children from the NSPCC and staff.  Christmas songs and lots of singing got us all in the party mood ready for the main parade into the store at 11am (not before a short photocall with Santa in front of Debenhams).

 

Our two young budding Elves (Tilly and Laura) then spent time assisting Santa in store by skipping around handing out balloons and leaflets inviting families to take the time to visit Santa in Lapland, as well as instore.

Rudi & Hal (kindly supplied by Cosmos holidays) spent four  hours in store greeting many young shoppers and their families.  A short venture outside into the main shopping square caused much interest and many photo opportunities for the young and the old alike !

All in all a great fun day promoting Santa in Lapland for a worthwhile cause - NSPCC.
