Father Christmas will be touring Cheshire in style this festive season thanks to St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice.
The big man in red has exchanged his traditional reindeer and sleigh for the comfort of Luke the Bus, a former London Routemaster bus luxuriously restored by long-term St Luke’s supporter Bentley Motors, which has been transformed into a glittering Santa’s grotto for the festive season by a kind-hearted team of 13 Barclays Bank staff.
Youngsters are being invited to hop aboard and visit Father Christmas as the bus makes its way across South and Mid Cheshire over the festive period.
Diane Eeley, St Luke’s Head of Community Development, said: “We’re delighted Father Christmas has taken time out of his busy schedule to meet as many of Cheshire’s children as he can. Make sure you and your family don’t miss the chance to meet Father Christmas aboard the amazing Luke the Bus.
“The Grotto looks fantastic and will be coming to a location near you, so it’s a perfect event for the whole family.”
