Over the last two Christmas seasons the Santa’s Grotto, run by the Friends of the Institute, at the Institute in Hill Street, Wisbech, has been a hit with children.
On Friday evening the friends reached out to less fortunate families in town. They were invited to come to experience the ‘Santa Effect’ with a free-of-charge visit to Sata’s grotto – with a free gift afterwards.
The Salvation Army provided a list of families who they support at Christmas and a FACT community bus brought them to the Grotto.
The gifts children received from Santa were provided by Wisbech Round Table.
The Mayor and Mayoress attended and enjoyed playing with the children and with the toys in Toy Land.

This is the friends’ contribution to spreading Christmas cheer a little wider this year.
You can visit Santa too – he will be in his Grotto waiting to see you on each Saturday in December up to Christmas and on Sunday 20 and Monday 21 from 10am until 3pm each day.
