Santa arrives at Dobbies
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
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
