FIVE charities will be having a happier Christmas thanks to Santa’s “real” reindeer.
The five reindeer have been resident at Weston’s Baytree Nurseries Garden Centre since November 5 and each week cash raised form the sale of carrots to feed Santa’s four-legged friends has been donated to a different charity.
The charities that have benefited are Children In Need (£240), The Kidney Foundation (£250), Macmillan Cancer Support (£400), Lincs Ark (£160) and the Parkinson’s Society, the total for which will be announced on Christmas Eve.
The carrots were donated by Robin Hancox of Lincolnshire Farm Produce.
The reindeer have been a regular festive fixture at the garden centre for the past 20 years.
