Santa arrives at Dobbies on Sunday!

GIRLS and boys who have been really good this year, don't have to wait much longer as Santa is due to make his big arrival at Dobbies Southport, on Benthams Way, Birkdale, at 11am, on Sunday, 22 November 2015.

As always, Santa likes to arrive in style and will make his way to the entrance of the store with the help of a colourful, magical parade and this year, for the 1st time, he'll be joined by Dobbie, a giant life size reindeer! Since her debut last Christmas she's gained quite a following; so it's really exciting that she's joining Santa in person this year to help raise funds for Dobbies' Christmas charity partner, Teenage Cancer Trust.

Janet Eddon, Community Champion at Dobbies Southport comments:- "Santa's arrival is an event that families look forward to every year; its lovely to see familiar faces and of course welcome newcomers. This year is going to be even more exciting as we are joined by Dobbie, our lovely little reindeer. She's very special to us here at Dobbies as she's been working really hard to deliver Christmas magic in our stores and I'm sure she'll be a hit with everyone on the day."

If you haven't heard of Dobbie yet, it's because she's the forgotten 10th reindeer. Some of you may have seen her story on television or on the radio, but if not her magical story, voiced by Bernard Cribbins, will be aired at the grotto for children to enjoy.

Onlookers can see Santa arrive at 11am; Dobbies advise getting to the store earlier so you can be ready to wave him in. The big man in red will then be available for breakfasts and suppers with Santa and for visits in his Grotto at Dobbies until Christmas Eve. Bookings are available online for the first time and places are selling out fast, so be sure to book in advance online. For more information about Santa's arrival at Dobbies please visit Dobbies' website.

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for the seven young people aged 13 to 24 diagnosed with cancer. For more information about Dobbies Charity Partner visit:- TeenageCancerTrust.Org.
