A West Norfolk family got an early Christmas present – £250 worth of vouchers.
Willow Hill, 10, won a competition held by the King’s Lynn’s Vancouver Quarter to write a letter to Santa and encouraging them to think of others with a Christmas Wishes campaign.
Willow, from Great Dunham, near Swaffham, said she wanted to share the vouchers with family.
Her vouchers will be split between Vancouver Quarter shops The Entertainer, TK Maxx and Claire’s.
Willow’s letter said:
I want my Dad to get better so he can have a good life like me. He can’t do stuff like other people can and I wish my family and friends to be happy and have a good life”.
The Vancouver Quarter’s Centre Manager Alistair Cox said: “It was so lovely to see all the incredibly thoughtful wishes sent in as part of our competition. This Christmas, in particular, is about doing what we can for others and helping our community as much as possible.
“Willow’s letter in particular was so thoughtful and kind, she is a very worthy winner”.
Alongside the Christmas Wishes project, the Vancouver Quarter is doing what it can to support the local community this festive period. They hosted a number of pop-up charity donation points including the Radio West Norfolk and Your Local Paper Toy Appeal, the NCT Clothes Bank and the King’s Lynn Police cadets collecting for the Foodbank.
