A Redbridge nursery school have joined forces with Father Christmas in the bid to raise money for charity.

Treehouse Nursery School, in Woodbine Place, Wanstead has set up a Christmas grotto to support the Mayor’s charity Haven House and Saint Francis Hospice.

The grotto opened to nursery parents and children on Saturday and opens to the public on Thursday (December, 21).

Mayor of Redbridge Cllr Linda Huggett officially opened the grotto in the company of an elf, an angel and human-sized Christmas pudding.

Santa is sharing stories and gifts and taking a photo with all who visit.

Haven House children’s hospice, in Woodford Green, supports families looking after children aged 19 or below with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.

Saint Francis Hospice, in Romford, provides free care to people suffering life-limiting illnesses and their carers and families.

The grotto is open from 10am to 4pm until December, 22.

Tickets are £15 for children and adults enter free.
