Jingle All The Way: Charity Sleigh Bell Party
‘Tis the season and here at Coulters we’re happy to announce we’re sponsoring the annual Sleigh Bell Party that raises money for the Edinburgh Children’s Hospital charity, who support the work of Edinburgh’s Royal Hospital for Sick Children (The Sick Kids). The event has been running for an impressive 40 years and in recent times has raised over £140,000.
The money raised has been put towards a variety of fantastic care facilities for sick children including new equipment – such as ceiling projectors for kids when having x-rays – private interview rooms and Beads of Courage; where children can collect beads every time they undergo a procedure to remind them of how brave they’ve been.
The party itself will host around 200 P1 and P2 local pupils on the 24th November at The Marine Hotel in North Berwick, where they’ll be able to enjoy games, a party tea, entertainment and magic from Peter Pepper. And that’s not all, they’ll also get to listen to the telling of a Christmas story finishing off with a visit from the one and only Santa who’ll be bringing them gifts straight from his actual sleigh.
Those wanting to bring some good tidings and contribute, have been purchasing one of the many raffle tickets with a chance to win some fabulous prizes that have all been generously donated by local East Lothian businesses.
So don’t be a humbug and donate what you can to make sure you’re on Santa’s nice list this Christmas by bringing a little Christmas magic to some deserving children – it is the season of giving after all.
