HHCC’s Letters from Father Christmas has returned for its second year

Posted on: Friday 10 Nov 2023

Harrogate Hospital & Community Charity (HHCC) are excited to announce the return of Letters from Father Christmas 2023!

After a successful delivery last year, HHCC’s Elves want to support children and young people this Christmas by giving something back; a personalised letter from the main man himself!

If you would like to request a personalised letter from Father Christmas, please complete the booking form on the HHCC Website – https://hhcc.co.uk/letters-from-father-christmas/.

Inside your loved ones envelope they will receive the personalised letter, an Official North Pole Certificate and a Christmas Colouring sheet selection.

All individuals that receive a letter from Father Christmas, will also be in with a chance of winning an amazing prize, kindly donated by Imagined Things Book Shop Harrogate, just in time for Christmas!

If you would like to post your own letter to Father Christmas, you can find a template letter here.

These personalised letters can be posted at the festive post box situated at Harrogate District Hospital Main Entrance from Friday 1 December 2023.

You can also hand deliver your own letter to Father Christmas himself this November, as he is kindly stopping by at HHCC’s Outdoor Pop up Christmas Market on 26 November 2023.
