Just before Christmas, Charles donned his best elf costume and set off for Parklands Primary School’s Christmas Eve Eve Spectacular, a truly festive community day organised each year by inspiring headteacher Chris Dyson in Seacroft, Leeds.
On Friday 23rd December, Chris and his colleagues opened up their school to the local community. All from the local area are welcome. Excited children were queuing at the door in eager anticipation of what was to come. And they weren’t disappointed. Santa’s Grotto was packed full of gifts donated by local businesses and plenty of energy was burned with football and basketball games taking place in the gym and a disco.
A free Christmas meal with turkey sandwiches, roast potatoes and veggies meant everyone was well fed and Charles helped to clear tables and tidy up. We also donated 50 pounds’ worth of fresh fruit to the free food bank. Well done Chris and team, we all had a fantastic festive day!
