Visit Santa for charity this Christmas

 Published on: 11th November 2018   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Get ready for a family day which is full of joy and kicks off the countdown to Christmas 2018. 

Herts Inclusive Theatre (HIT) and Watford Mencap have come together for a joint fundraising event at the Holywell Community Centre, Watford.

On Saturday, November 24, 11am-3pm, families are invited to join in the festivities by taking part in circus skills, drumming and movement workshops.

Visit Santa in his grotto, get creative with arts and crafts activities, jump around in the soft play area and listen to local children’s author Nick Marshal read his newly published book, ‘Tidley Squeak’.

A pop up café will be available, there will be the opportunity to buy some Christmas gifts and stocking fillers. Keep a lookout for the mischievous elves during the afternoon enticing you to take part in family fun games. 

Emma Harrington, producer at HIT said: “We are really excited about this year’s event.

We would like to thank our sponsors, All Aboard Charity Shops, Imagine Estate Agents and MyNews. 

Support from businesses is invaluable as it enables us to concentrate on making the day enjoyable for all. The money raised goes to two fantastic charities; both make a difference to those living with disabilities in our community.”

Adults pay £3 entrance; children’s entrance is free (up to 15 years). 

HIT is an arts charity which aims to improve the well-being of people, particularly children and young people and those who are disadvantaged or disabled, by using the arts to build confidence and develop skills in an inclusive, fun, creative space. 

Watford Mencap supports over 800 people with learning disabilities in Watford, Three Rivers and Hertsmere.
