Peterborough Lions Club, with the support of our great friend Santa Claus, and our very own Lennie the Lion, were delighted to be able to make a special visit to the Children’s Ward at Peterborough City Hospital.
In a dramatic entrance, Santa arrived in a motorcade of 7 police cars and a fire engine, complete with sirens and blue lights (competing with Santa’s own multi-coloured lights) to announce his arrival.
The children in the ward waved excitedly at us (or maybe it was just at Santa, who always steals the show?) and it was great for us to be able to bring a smile to some faces in the run up to Christmas. It’s a reminder that whilst some children won’t be lucky enough to be at home for Christmas, Santa always knows where to find them.
Thank you to Peterborough Lions Past President Bill for arranging this visit, and for all those Lions and others involved in making it happen.
