As this is a Christmas like no other, I had to think fast on my feet to find a way in which the Deluxe Father Christmas could still do his rounds. After months of Zoom calls, Teams meetings and online hangouts, I came to the conclusion that, this year, the Deluxe Father Christmas would make his online debut.

Yes, this year I will be doing personalised online Christmas messages for children up and down the land. As children won’t be able to sit on Santa’s lap this year, I’ll make sure they can still see the big man himself and he’ll be addressing each child personally. As my personal wish as Santa is to raise money and support all the children and young people who have lost family members during this difficult time, I am asking for contributions this year to go to Winston’s Wish.

If you’d like a personalised Christmas message for your family, and would like to donate to Winston’s Wish, you can visit my gofundme page. Also, feel free to email me at if you’d like more information.

Already, since I launched this appeal, an incredible 100+ people have donated, raising more than £1000. But there’s still time to donate so please give whatever you can. Every penny will make a difference.

 Winston’s Wish supports bereaved children and their families, you can find lots of information about this wonderful charity on their website.
