Father Christmas will literally drop from the sky to give dogs from an RSPCA rescue centre their treats this Sunday (November 30).

Santa, along with one of his elves, will arrive at Block Fen Animal Centre in Wimblington, by parachute for their Festive Fundraiser.

Kirstyn Gaunt, deputy manager at Block Fenn, said: “We are all incredibly excited about the arrival and hope to get everyone out, including visiting children and dogs, to gather around to greet him as he touches down.

I am told he will have plenty of treats for the dogs, and presents for the children, so no one should miss out.”

Father Christmas aims to arrive between 11.30am and noon, weather permitting, with a little help from the North London Parachute Centre.

There will also be carol singers, craft and gift stalls, face painting, games and several raffles and tombolas. Entrance is free.

The centre will also be open and there will also be opportunities to meet some of the rescue animals - many of whom are in need of a new home.
