iCare opens its biggest annual fundraising extravaganza, Santa’s Gatelodge, this Friday 30th November! Established in 2010, Santa’s Gatelodge has grown in popularity to become THE Christmas destination for families across the Country.
The Christmas wonderland allows its guests to journey throughout the 130-year-old Gatelodge grounds,make a wish around the magical Christmas tree, meet Mrs Claus and share a story with the Fairy Godmother before setting off to the next phase.
Guests have an opportunity to experience first-hand, the Elf music school and Cinema before having a word with the big man himself, Mr Santa Claus. The display is aimed at children of all ages with even the oldest of guest’s singing a Christmas carol or two along the way.
In 2017 Santa’s Gatelodge saw over 5000 people cross the entrance. Every year iCare raises funds through its Christmas festivities to help fund iCare wishes for vulnerable individuals and groups throughout the year. The dedication of volunteers and the spirit that sweeps across the local community are the reasons this display of charitable excellence continues to build year upon year.
