Local children, who attend conductive education classes at the Stick ‘n’ Step Wallasey and Runcorn centres, had a special surprise visit from Santa when the charity held its Christmas party at Thornton Hall, Wirral last week. Children from Stick ‘n’ Step partied with their families and friends all afternoon at the beautiful hotel before receiving a Christmas present and having the chance to chat to Santa. The whole event was sponsored by AHS Commercial Ltd, who covered the entire cost.

Hettie Miles, Corporate and Community Fundraiser for Stick ‘Step, said:

“We would like to say a big thank you to everyone at AHS Commercial Ltd who made this fantastic event possible. We all had a wonderful time and I’m sure the children will never forget Santa’s visit either.”
