We are extremely humbled by the amazing support and generosity of members of the public at this time of year and it is difficult to say thank you to every one individually that has helped to support Yorkshire Children’s Trust. However, we must reach out and offer a big thank you to the team at the Bingley Grotto. Every year, Santa Blake is invited across to the home of Bob and Pamela Firth who host a grotto from their own home. They do not charge for this, but just ask for a donation to Yorkshire Children’s Trust.

There is never an expectation for anyone to donate, its all about keeping the magic alive for local children and their annual grotto has become a very popular attraction, quickly filling up every year. Not only have a great number of gifts been donated to the Christmas Appeal, but a truly outstanding £2178.46 has been raised for the charity to continue to offer its support to many more children in the region throughout 2022. Best of all, as the charity cover their core costs with their green recycling initiatives, 100% of the raised money will be used to support local children and their families – Thank you to Bob, Pamela and their team of volunteers who give their time every Christmas to create this magical experience.

It’s not too late if you would like to support Yorkshire Children’s Trust this Christmas, you can visit Santa Blake’s JustGiving page and pledge a magical festive donation to help support our work. Just click here to visit the page and donate.
