It’s been a difficult year for Santa and the elves.
Social distancing in the workshop has meant production has been tricky at times but they are still on target to have everything ready for Christmas Eve. Amazingly, Santa has still found time to team up with us at the NSPCC, to send personalised letters all the way from Lapland.
Each Letter from Santa is printed and posted directly to your child in a festive envelope.
You can choose the background design and fill in your child’s personal information such as age, best friend’s name or particular achievements throughout the year.
All we ask in return is a donation to help us be there for children, whatever their worries, this Christmas and beyond. Five pounds could buy art materials to help a child who has been abused to express their feelings when they can’t find the words.
Four pounds could pay for one of our trained volunteer counsellors to answer a child’s call to Childline.
In 2019/20 our volunteers handled an estimated 34,100 counselling sessions with children in London. Without the support of people in London we simply wouldn’t be able to deliver our vital services which offer a lifeline to many children and young people whose lives have been affected by abuse. Everything we do protects children today and prevents abuse tomorrow, to transform society for every childhood.
That’s why we’re here and that’s what drives all of our work.
But it’s only possible with your support. To find out more about the NSPCC’s Letter from Santa visit nspcc.org.uk/Santa

Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick has encouraged everyone in the country who can afford to do so to buy a newspaper, and told the Downing Street press briefing recently: “A free country needs a free press, and the newspapers of our country are under significant financial pressure”.
So if you have enjoyed reading this story, and if you can afford to do so, we would be so grateful if you can buy our newspaper or make a donation, which will allow us to continue to bring stories like this one to you both in print and online.
