Santa Visits Community Links

I am a volunteer at the Bristol Community Links in Lanercost Road.  I work with people with learning disabilities, dementia, older people, and people with sensory and physical impairments.

I find it a most rewarding job.  They are such happy people and always laughing, enjoying everything that goes on, and I enjoy my time there.

At Christmas they had a great time.  The place was lit-up like you’ve never seen – big Christmas trees all covered with trimmings and lights.

Then there was the entertainment – lady singers and a mixed bag of groups and bands.  But the main event was on 22nd December when Father Christmas came on his Tuk-tuk.   He said he couldn’t take it all in and what a lovely place it was.  Everyone there had a present, it was a great day all round.

Father Christmas’s name is Paul Tanner, he’s 50 and he and his wife live in Lawrence Weston.  They do a lot for charity and also do wedding planning.

A big thank you to Paul.
