A Christmas fair with real reindeer has raised over £1,000 for care home residents.
Stowlangtoft Hall opened its doors to the public for its annual Christmas Fair, kick-starting the festive season in style.
The home welcomed more than 25 stall holders ranging from handmade crafts and jewellery to children’s toys, with the highlight of the day coming when Santa Claus himself brought along two of his reindeer Blitzen and Comet.
Children were able to meet Santa in his grotto and pass on their Christmas wish list ready for the big day.
Sally Chilvers, care home manager, said: “It has been a huge team effort from everyone at Stowlangtoft Hall whether they helped us on the day or donated prizes to raise money, we have been overwhelmed with people’s generosity to put on a great day for our residents.”
The money raised will pay for residents’ trips events in 2019.
