The Port Arcades Shopping Centre is linking up with Chester’s Dee Radio 106.3 FM for the second year running, offering young shoppers the chance to receive a Christmas Eve phone call from Father Christmas.

Some lucky children who post a letter to Santa in the special post box in the shopping centre will receive a phone call from the man himself on Christmas Eve - which will be broadcast live on Dee 106.3FM during the breakfast show.

To register your child for a chance to receive a the magical phone call, pop into the Port Arcades Shopping Centre and leave a letter in Santa’s post box (located next to Costa Coffee). Children can write their own letter or collect a template letter from the centre.

Michelle Pickstock from the Port Arcades Shopping Centre, said: “A phone call from Santa is a wonderful way to continue the magic of Christmas for children. Last year, 12 local children received a wonderful surprise when Santa called them on Christmas Eve, we are delighted to be able to offer this chance again.”

Remember when completing letters they all need to contain the child’s name, age and most importantly a phone number. To ensure that all of the forms reach Santa in time they need to be posted into the centre’s post box by 5pm on Thursday, December 18.
