NCI Sponsor Santa's Grotto in Helston
The new Helston Grotto used to be an old fast food stand and was donated by Mike Bury Plumbing and completely redesigned and refurbished by Mike Bury and Stuart Stringer from Stuart Stringer Builders. Maria Bury invited Santa to come from the North Pole with his sacks of presents.
Further trades and businesses have donated their time and materials including Andy Trish of NCI Technologies, Wayne Gilbert of ISW Electrical Contractors, Rob Sharkey of Perfect Fit Flooring, Jewson Helston. Eurotool Helston and Phoenix signs Helston.
Maria Bury has given the biggest donation of all. She has organised the whole set up for the past 4 years and she has volunteered as one of Santas elves along with her mother and close friends and family. Maria (the head elf) is tasked with ordering and wrapping all of the presents at Santas workshop and has done a fantastic job of which we are all very proud of. Other elves who have volunteered their time are Debbie Palmer Sarah Trounson , Jackie Harvey , Teresa Robson and Mia Robson.
Santa has been visiting children for the past two Fridays in the grotto in Helston with 2017 having been the biggest success since starting the grotto experience. Now that Santa has a grotto that is capable of travelling, children all around the world can look forward to seeing him every Christmas.
If you want to see Santa in his Grotto in Helston this year it will be your last chance on Friday 15th December where he will be surrounded by his real reindeer. Santa will then need to go back to the North Pole to get ready for his big night delivering presents to children all around the world.
Santa will be in his Grotto from 5pm (£3 per child which includes a well-filled goodie bag) and the reindeer will be in their pen from 5pm till 7pm.
