WIRRAL charity Autism Together's Christmas grotto has opened at the organisation's garden centre in Bromborough Pool village.

It will be open each Saturday and Sunday until December 17.

Rick Myers, fundraising officer and head Santa at Autism Together, said: "We are really excited to be holding our very popular grotto at our own garden centre this year, bringing the magic of Christmas to children everywhere.

"We are hoping that we will hold one here every year for many years to come.

"Last year we raised nearly £4,000 and we hope we can achieve this again."

A visit to the grotto costs £5 per entrant.

All money raised is donated to Autism Together. For further information call 0151 643 1359.
