A Wirral garden centre is set to join forces with Autism Together to put on the ultimate Santa’s grotto just in time for Christmas.

The grand opening on Saturday November 26 at Port Sunlight Garden Centre will raise awareness for the charity whilst catering with guests who have autism every weekend until Sunday, December 18.

Then the grotto will be open daily until Christmas Eve with visitors being advised to arrive early to avoid disappointment and receive a free gift from Santa.

Fundraising officer and head Santa at Autism Together, Rick Myers, said: “This is the fifth year running where Santa has come to the grotto here at Port Sunlight.

“We are hoping that this year will be even bigger and better than the previous years.

“Last year we raised more than £3,000 and we hope to exceed that total!”

Entry is £5 with all proceeds going towards Autism Together’s Respite Appeal.
