Updated: 11:28 am, Nov 27, 2015

BROMSGROVE’S Little Heath Garden Centre has donated two Christmas trees to the Primrose Hospice for the annual Light of Love campaign.

Garden centre manager Pete Brooks said: “We are honoured to work with such a wonderful charity who carry out such invaluable work in our local community. “We hope by donating two beautiful Christmas trees that their campaign will go from strength to strength again this year.”

The centre is also operating a free Santa’s grotto in aid of the charity which opens tomorrow (Saturday) and will be open every Saturday and Sunday until Christmas, along with 11am to 3pm on December 22 and 23 and Christmas Eve between 11am and 1pm.

Not only will children have the chance to meet Santa, but they will also receive a sticker set, get to sit on his sleigh and be able ot take a #BelieveInYourElfie and have their photograph taken with the man himself.

Grotto photography sets will be available to purchase on the day of the visit.

This year’s Lights of Love has already got off to a great start – it was officially launched at the Bromsgrove Christmas lights switch-on on Saturday (December 21) and more than £21,000 has already being raised.

The Rubery Lights of Love tree – also supplied by Little Heath – will also be illuminated tomorrow (Saturday) at the village’s annual switch-on.
