Creating Christmas Magic for Children & Charities in CornwallJanuary 10, 2017
Trevena Cross Nurseries near Helston made plenty of children smile in the run up to Christmas with its magical Santa’s Grotto, but it wasn’t just children that were smiling, as all proceeds raised from visits to Father Christmas, during the three BIG Christmas weekends at Trevena Cross, are being given to two wonderful local charities.
With big support from The Rotary Club of Helston-Lizard, Trevena Cross raised £3,320.00 for the Cornwall Air Ambulance and Cornwall Leukaemia Trust.
Trevena Cross owner Graham Jeffery comments:
“We built on last year’s successful Christmas weekends to make this year’s even bigger and better. We built a brand new grotto from scratch, and the team worked really hard to make sure that it would be a truly magical experience for the whole family. We invested in real wow factor with our giant polar bear – a great photo opportunity – and our entertaining talking owl, Oggy! With extra touches, including plenty of snow, bubbles, chocolates and fabulous lights, we seemed to find the recipe for success!
It is really satisfying to know that we have helped lots of local families create wonderful memories in the build up to Christmas, but even more satisfying to be able to give two wonderfully worthy Cornish charities £1,660.00 a piece, thanks to the support of all our grotto visitors. It makes the many hours of hard work, beforehand and during the event, completely worthwhile.
A big thanks to The Rotary Club of Helston-Lizard, without whom, it wouldn’t all have been possible.”
