A group of staff from a Bar Hill-based company brought Christmas cheer to a Cambridge school for children with special educational needs or learning difficulties.
The team from Domino Printing wore suitably seasonal costumes to make the annual visit to Castle School, with Santa and his team of elves bringing presents and cakes for more than 80 children.
Sharon Viccars from Domino said: “This has become an annual tradition at Domino and we are delighted to help again this year. In addition to those making the visit, many others help with wrapping sessions over the lunch period so that every child receives a gift, as well as seasonally-decorated cup cakes.”
The initiative is part of Domino’s year-round programme of supporting the communities in which it is located.
Liz West, Assistant Headteacher at Castle School added: “Domino’s Santa and Elves always bring a special touch of magic to our Castle Christmas and we are so grateful for their continuing support and enthusiasm. For some of our pupils, this is their only opportunity to visit a traditional Santa’s grotto which makes it extra special.
“We are also grateful for Domino’s donations to our other projects over the year, including the sensory room and the playground, a magical adventurous environment in which pupils can explore and learn.”
Castle School, which is based in Courtney Way in Cambridge, has 185 pupils aged three to 19 years. All pupils have a Statement of Special Educational Needs or Education Health and Care Plan for significant, moderate, severe or complex learning difficulties.
