Today has been one of those amazing days that really lifts your spirits and it’s definitely in my top ten Operation Santa days ever!
Started the day at Grotto HQ sorting some lovely donations which had come and I found something I believed had been lost forever, so it was going really well. Then Lee and Billy popped into Grotto HQ with a van full of toys, a bike donated by a young lad and the BIGGEST cash donation in Operation Santa history = £3700 !!!! After tears [mine], hugs all round and a great catch up, I’m still smiling.
This afternoon I had a lovely phone catch up with one of the elves and a welcome visit by an old friend, who’s only signed up as a lovely new elf volunteer and will be helping in Grotto HQ and with some of the Christmas meals.
