Mrs Santa on grotto baking duty for cafe’s domestic abuse charity work

A CAFE supporting a domestic abuse charity is welcoming “Mrs Santa” at a festive grotto with a difference.

The Christmas scene is set at cafe Hygge on Rotherham’s High Street, where the VIP guest has been busy wrapping presents, writing letters and baking cookies.

A spokesperson for the venue, which supports Rotherham Rise, said: “We heard reindeer on our roof, some glitter fell from the sky and, in the morning, we found an entire sparkling grotto and a workshop!

“We chatted with Mrs Santa, and she would love some small visitors, so she can talk about reindeer, who is on the ‘nice’ list, and show important small guests around her workshop when she’s not wrapping presents or writing letters.

“Mrs Santa will have an age-appropriate gift, a Christmas bracelet, sweet and sticker for all visiting children.”

The grotto is open on the next two Saturdays, December 10 and 17, from 10am to 2.30pm. There is no need to book.

The minimum ticket donation suggestion is £5 for the first child and additional children for £2.50 each. The maximum is four children per adult.

From Tuesdays to Fridays, the sparkling workshop is available as a place to eat and drink for a charitable donation of £7.50.

All funds raised will contribute to Christmas celebrations for the children in Rotherham Rise’s domestic abuse refuge.
