CALLING all Santa wanabees!

Deans Garden Centre in Seamer Road, Scarborough, is calling for a local charity to man Santa’s Grotto for a weekend on the run-up to Christmas.

The garden centre’s chosen charity for the year is Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale MIND, who will be running the store’s grotto in December.

However, another charity is needed to run it on November 26 and 27, which will be its opening weekend.

Manager Jim Cockerton said: “The grotto will be ready, with all the gifts and toys.

“The charity will be raising money for themselves as they run the grotto.”

For more details contact Jim on (01723) 361814.

The garden centre is also hosting a Christmas Evening in aid of MIND on Tuesday November 22 from 6pm to 9pm, with stalls, cakes, flower demonstrations and a raffle.

Entertainment will be provided by youngsters from Scarborough Dance Centre.
