Sandwiches with Santa

… At Friar Park Children’s Centre

Six months before Christmas and savers with the  Friar Park Christmas Savings Club are invited to have sandwiches with Santa on Thursday  7th July at 12noon at Friar Park Children’s Centre.

The club, is a joint initiative between the Friar Park Project and the  6Towns Credit Union to encourage people to save ready for Christmas rather than depend on pay day loans.

Those who have saved regularly with the Savings Club will have their names put in to Santa’s hat for a chance to win a Dudley Zoo family ticket.

Santa and his helper, Ernie the elephant, will be on hand to congratulate the winner who will be able to take 2 adults and up to 3 children to Dudley Zoo during the school holidays.

Janet Foster, Community Co-ordinator said,  ” Christmas is a hugely expensive time of year for everyone, especially families, and by saving small amounts of money each week it helps spread the cost of Christmas.  And of course  because  this is part of a credit union people’s savings are guaranteed “.
