We would like to thank you all for your amazing donations of gifts this year, its been one of most busiest years and we have literally received hundreds and hundreds of gifts to donate to children who are going to be in hospital over the Christmas period. Over the last few weeks we have travelled all across the region and collected gifts from businesses, schools and colleges and our team of busy elves have worked hard to check and wrap all these wonderful gifts.

Today is a magical day. Although Santa Blake cannot do his normal grotto experience at Calderdale Hospital, he will be making some special video calls today directly from the North Pole! Not even the pandemic can stop Santa bringing smiles to some very special children’s faces. As Santa does his great work, our team will be busy dropping gifts off to our local hospitals and Eckersley House to ensure there is a gift to open too!

Thank you to every one who has donated this year, both Santa and the team at Yorkshire Children’s Trust would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
