Father Christmas, schoolchildren, a pop choir and a brass band have joined festive forces to entertain the Huntington community and raise money for a local hospice.
All ages were catered for at Redrow’s Regent’s Grange venture with mince pies aplenty and mulled wine for the adults, while children were able to meet Santa and Redrow’s mascots Buster and Buddy. Local businesses generously donated prizes for the charity raffle in aid of The Hospice of the Good Shepherd.
The festivities were complemented with a backdrop of traditional songs and carols, courtesy of the children from Huntington Primary School, Chester-based Deva Brass Band and The Northwich Pop Choir.
The event was attended by the Deputy Lord Mayor councillor Razia Daniels.
Sales director for Redrow Homes (NW) Jason Newton, said: “It was fantastic to be able to welcome Father Christmas and all of the wonderful entertainers to Regent’s Grange.
“All of the proceeds from the event will go to The Hospice of the Good Shepherd to support the amazing work they do in the community.”
Corporate fundraiser for the hospice Melanie Cowieson said: “It was amazing to see such a fantastic turnout at the event and we’re incredibly grateful that Redrow has supported us. The Hospice needs to raise more than £2.5 million each year to provide its services and relies on the generosity of the community as a whole to help raise this amount.”
