It would be wonderful if you could spread awareness of a wonderful festive initiative to bring festive cheer to children and to raise funds for local charities.
For many years the lovely Mr Frankish senior has been visiting his local nursery in Kempston as Father Christmas, talking to the children and giving out presents.
Unfortunately, this year he was unable to do this so they asked him to do a video of him reading a Christmas story dressed up as Father Christmas.
The family thought it would be nice to share this with others to raise some christmas cheer especially for those who may not be able to go and see Father Christmas this year.
Last year the Frankish family tragically lost their son / brother, Chris Frankish, following a battle with alcoholism and they have been dedicated to raising awareness and funds in his memory.
They set up a facebook page called the Chris Frankish Trust and in 2019 they teamed up with The Sharnbrook Hotel and raised £5000 to support their chosen charities.
This year has been difficult to fundraise so they have decided to share the Father Christmas video for a donation, there is no minimum as they are aware that people’s circumstances are all different this year.
You can donate here.
The money will be going to three different charities. Bedford Open Door is one of the chosen charities. We offer free, confidential counselling for 13-25 year olds around Bedfordshire and have continued to offer this service throughout lockdown virtually and in person.
We would love to share this message far and wide to bring smiles to the faces of children and to raise money to support local charities.
