A glow-in-the-dark Father Christmas will be delivering festive cheer in Camberley to raise funds for Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance.
Santa will be patrolling the Heatherside estate for fours hours on Christmas Eve, complete with glowing lantern and a colour-changing sack of presents.
He said: “I’ll be walking around the local housing development that evening, so that the little ones can get a spy of Santa doing his advanced reconnaissance visit of all the good childrens’ houses, ready to return later with sleigh, reindeer and presents of course.
“I did it last year, just as a bit of fun for all the kids and especially the Armed Forces families close by and it went down a storm.”
Santa will also be taking up residence in a purpose-built grotto for a Christmas Extravaganza at Pistachios Café in Frimley Lodge Park on Sunday (December 13th), between 10am and 4pm.
There will also be an indoor market, face painting, carol singing, mulled wine, mince pies and hot chestnuts.
Santa has made previous appearances at Christmas fairs at Heather Ridge Infant School and Connaught Leisure Centre in Aldershot and more details can be found on his Santa in Heatherside Facebook page.
The draw will take place next week (December 15th), making it an early Christmas present for one lucky winner.
