Santa letters will help back child support charity

THE NSPCC is bringing a magical Christmas to children in Angus with the launch of the charity’s Letter from Santa campaign, which began this week.

The charity is helping to give a truly memorable Christmas by arranging for a personalised letter from Santa to be sent to children throughout Angus for a suggested donation of £5. Funds raised will go towards child support services across the country.

Sarah Morley, NSPCC Scotland community fundraising manager, said: “Christmas is such an exciting time of year for children, so why not bring even more magic and excitement by ordering a Letter from Santa for a friend or relative and support the NSPCC and ChildLine during the festive season.

“Every £5 raised by Letter from Santa could help ChildLine be there whenever a child seeks help either online or by phone. And every £25 raised could enable a trained practitioner to deliver one hour of support through the NSPCC’s helpline for adults who are concerned about a child.”

There are five styles of NSPCC Letter from Santa for children of all ages, making them the ideal gift for families with more than one child as each child can receive a truly unique letter. Santa can even write a special letter to celebrate Baby’s First Christmas – a keepsake to treasure for years to come

Each letter is uniquely personalised with the child’s name, age, address, gender and best friend’s name and there’s also the chance to include a final ‘P.S.’ thought from Santa when you order online. The letters are beautifully illustrated and arrive via reindeer mail to make the experience truly unforgettable.

The reindeer mailroom will be open from until December 17 and all those who request a Letter from Santa this year will be entered into a free prize draw to win a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Lapland.

Orders for letters can also be placed online at www.nspcc.org.uk/santa or by telephone by calling 0845 839 9304.
