A local charity is on the look-out for Santa Clauses to help spread some Christmas cheer and raise vital funds for cancer patients and their families.

Cancer Focus Northern Ireland is holding a Santa’s Grotto in Penny Square Market, Lisburn, every Friday and Saturday from November 18 - December 17, and the charity is searching for volunteers to play Santa Claus and his little helpers.

“Cancer Focus NI relies on public donations to provide lifeline services for people at one of the most difficult times in their lives. All the money raised is spent in Northern Ireland on local cancer research, care services, cancer prevention, education projects and campaigning for better government policies,” a spokesperson said.

“Why not get a team together with your friends, family or work colleagues and take part in vital fundraising during this festive season?”

It doesn’t matter if you’ve been naughty or nice all year, if you can spare a few hours on any of the days please call Morag or Sarah on 028 9066 3281 or email volunteer@cancerfocusni.org
