A CANCER charity is seeking festive friends in Wetherby to help them raise Christmas cash by providing a new home for Santa.

Marie Curie Cancer Care has a Belgian Chocolate Santa’s that they are hoping will help them raise their target of £10,000.

Santa is accompanied by a list of 100 festive words and supporters are encouraged to make a donation and choose Santa’s favourite. The person who chooses the correct word wins the Santa.

The money raised by the appeal will help terminally ill patients in Wetherby stay in their own homes over the Christmas period.

Fundraiser Claire Priestwood said: “This is our most delicious appeal of the year and ideal for chocolate lovers everywhere. Each Santa has the potential to raise £100 which will provide five hours of care.”

A full fundraising kit will be provided by the charity including a chocolate Santa. Festive friends who can take Santa to work, their local pub or club should call 01274386191 or email
