Katie Gray from Sweetpeas sweet shop in the appropriately named St Nicholas Drive, in Caister is setting up a Santa’s Grotto.

She is hoping to raise £1,000 for the James Paget Hospital’s childrens’ ward by setting up a grotto in the shop.

She said: “After all Christmas is all about children and seeing them happy.”

Santa will be visiting the grotto this Sunday (December 3) and Saturday, December 16 from 10am to 4.30pm.

The little ones will be able to let Father Christmas know what is on their Christmas list and they will receive a gift to take home and some special ‘reindeer food’ for Rudolph and his friends.

The price per child is £4 with half of the profit going to the childrens’ ward.

There will also be a raffle at £1 with prizes donated by local businesses and members of the public, with all proceeds from ticket sales to the hospital.
