The Cystic Fibrosis Trust has been chosen as Santa’s special helpers for this year’s Christmas Grotto at Hillside Nursery Centre in Newtownabbey.

Hillside Nursery Centre will be getting customers in the festive spirit when Santa arrives at the magical Grotto on Saturday, November 19.

Families can join Mr and Mrs Claus for some Christmas stories and craft making with Santa’s happy elves who’ll also be on hand to help.

This year the festivities are being run in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust with proceeds from the Grotto going towards the charity. Cystic fibrosis is an inherited disease caused by a faulty gene. This gene controls the movement of salt and water in and out of your cells, so the lungs and digestive system become clogged with mucus, making it hard to breathe and digest food.

The Grotto will run each Wednesday to Sunday until December 18. Tickets can be bought online via Hillside Santa’s Grotto Facebook Page: https://www.ticketea.co.uk/tickets-activities-hillside-nursery-centre-santas-grotto/
