Silent Santa 2016

We are delighted to be hosting ‘Silent Santa’ again this year in association with the National Autistic Society. Children with autism are getting to experience a magical visit to Santa thanks to the National Autistic Society NI and Bloomfield Shopping Centre, Bangor.

For children with autism a visit to Santa can be anything but merry and for some it can be a terrifying experience, with long queues, large crowds, bright lights and deafening noise. Unfortunately many families with a child with autism forego the traditional visit to Santa’s grotto and miss out on an experience that so many families take for granted. This means that many families with a child with autism miss the opportunity to capture elusive Christmas photos and memories which so many other children take for granted and which is so much part of the build- up and excitement of Christmas.

There will be two sessions on Sunday 4th and 11th December. For more info and to book please contact Shirelle at NAS – shirelle.Stewart@nas.org.uk
