Santa Clause is Coming to Town with Ayrshire Hospice

This week, Ayrshire Hospice are delighted to announce that for the first time ever, they will be holding their very own Santa’s Grotto in the heart of Ayr, at Ayr Central Shopping Centre.

Taking place as a special one-off event, Santa’s Grotto will be open on Saturday 4th December, 10am – 3pm and Sunday 5th December, 12noon – 3pm. Make a wonderful start to the festive season by booking your space to meet Father Christmas and his magical elves. Every child will receive a special present from Santa and have the fantastic opportunity to send a letter to Santa in his post box, to which they will later receive a reply from Santa himself in the post! Rebekah McGinn, Senior Fundraiser at Ayrshire Hospice, said, “We are thrilled to be working with Ayr Central Shopping Centre this year to bring families this magical experience. We are extremely excited to be out in the community at this special time of year to engage with everyone, raise vital funds for the hospice and make children smile.” George Reader, Centre Manager at Ayr Central Shopping Centre, commented, "Here at Ayr Central we know how special it is for families to meet Santa and share those all-important Christmas wishes. After last year's Christmas restrictions, we’re very grateful that Ayrshire Hospice will be hosting this charming grotto experience at the Centre for our littlest visitors and their families, while also raising much needed funds for the charity.” Tickets must be booked in advance as tickets will sell fast! Meet Santa for £5.00 per child. To find out further information about Santa’s Grotto visit www.ayrshirehospice.org or call the fundraising team on 01292 288 488.
