Our grotto raises nearly £2,800 for Eden Valley and Jigsaw

We are delighted to announce that our grotto this year has raised nearly £2,800 for two local charities.

Our grotto was open for four weekends where families could visit Father Christmas and his Elves for a recommended donation of £3. Thanks to the generosity of our visitors we are delighted to announce we have raised almost £2,800 for Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw Children’s Hospice.

Eden Valley Hospice provides expert care to people from north Cumbria with life-limiting illnesses. The hospice’s dedicated staff care for patients in a home from home environment as well as offering a range of support to families.

At Jigsaw, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice, children and young adults with life-limiting illnesses from right across the county can access day-to-day care, support and activities. Any funding received not only supports providing expert clinical care for children and young people in the Jigsaw building, but also helps families to make memories which will last a lifetime.

This year we also welcomed the wonderful Rainbow Elves, Rosie and Rhubarb from Rainbow Wishes Foundation, who made several weekend appearances to entertain shoppers and those waiting to see Santa.

A huge thank you again to everyone who donated and helped to make our grotto such a success.
