Visits to the grotto are £2.50, with £1 going to Barnardo’s, along with £1 from every photograph and merchandise sale. Each child will receive a branded gift.

Jade Elliott, marketing manager at Xscape, said: “As well as raising much needed funds to help support the fantastic services the charity provides for families in our community, we worked with Barnardo’s to treat six families to a magical VIP Santa visit. We also teamed up with Junction 32 Outlet Village, which provided some amazing gifts for the children.”

One of the families included mum-of-three, Trish Willmott. She said: “It was a great event to be part of, especially with the funds that will be raised through the grotto ticket sales for Barnardo’s – they’ve been a great support to me and my family.” Santa’s Snug will be open until December 24.
