Father Christmas Hits the Road for Annual Festive Tour Aboard Iconic St Luke’s Bus

Luke Grotto inside

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 the hospice’s now iconic 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 staff and students at Mid Cheshire College.

The generous team at the Northwich-based college also went above and beyond this year to also wrap 300 presents which will take pride of place to be handed out to children in Santa’s beautiful travelling home.

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.

Entry to the touring grotto is £3 per child and every child will receive a present.

St Luke’s Head of Corporate & Community Development, Di Eeley, commented: “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 thanks to the excellent and incredibly generous work of the team at Mid Cheshire College and will be coming to a location near you, so it’s a perfect event for the whole family.”
