Christmas Eve Eve 2019

Monday 23rd December 2019 saw Parklands open its doors for the 6th successive year as we aim to give the children and the community here in Seacroft the ultimate Xmas Party.

This year we welcomed 740 special guests through our community doors. The kitchen staff did an amazing job preparing a three course lunch with all the trimmings. There were ‘real life’ unicorns in the hall interacting with the children before they visited Santa and his Elves – direct from the North Pole.

It was a truly amazing day with such great thanks being shared by the parents. None of this would have possible without the time my lovely staff gave and the donations from Businesses all over the World. For all you lovely, lovely life changes – THANK YOU.
