The Grounds Care Group in Fetcham organised a party with reindeer and sleigh rides for seriously ill children supported by its charity partner Rainbow Trust.
Families supported by the charity’s Surrey care team, along with local residents, were invited to the festivities at the Ground Care Group’s Cannon Way offices on 17 December.
The children had the chance to feed the reindeer, sit in Santa’s sleigh and visit his grotto and they all received a special festive gift.
After selecting Rainbow Trust as its Charity of the Year, The Grounds Care Group also previously committed to providing free gardening to Surrey families supported by Rainbow Trust.
Oonagh Goodman, Director of Marketing and Fundraising at Rainbow Trust, said:
“We are extremely grateful to The Grounds Care Group for organising such a wonderful event for families caring for seriously ill children. Christmas can be one of the hardest times of the year for these families and we would like to thank The Grounds Care Group for providing them with a fun opportunity to spend precious time together.”
Kirsty Bedford, Finance Manager at The Grounds Care Group, said:
“It was lovely to see the huge smiles on the children’s faces as they met Father Christmas, everyone had a great day”
