Santa brought his grotto to the Gist factory in Spalding last weekend.

Over 100 employees’ children, ranging from three months to 11 years old, attended over the two days and each received a personalised gift.

Children also had the opportunity to look inside a brand-new Gist truck. The event was organised as a direct result of an employee survey whereby requests were put forward for the site to host a festive event for children.

This followed the commitment and success of the Child Road Safety Programme which has now been operating in Spalding for the last two years. The programme has been delivered to over 3,000 children in the local area with 32 schools being visited.
