SEC Bring Festive Magic With Our Hospital Grotto

20 December 2019 santa grotto

Our partners at the Scottish Event Campus have helped to bring Christmas magic to the children's hospital by supplying our extra special grotto for the 4th year running!

Our Santa’s Grotto has been open throughout December welcoming patients and their families to meet Father Christmas himself and his helpful elves.

"The Scottish Event Campus’ long-standing partnership with Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity includes the design, build and manning of a spectacular Santa’s grotto, complete with gifts for the youngsters who spend their festive period in hospital.

“The Scottish Event Campus is committed to providing Santa and his team the best experience when he visits Glasgow.  We, as an organisation are incredibly proud to have our very own all year round “elves workshop” on site with all the skills and tools of the trade to build something special!

"Working with Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity is a truly humbling experience, and if we can provide a little bit of magic to a difficult period for some, then that’s the best present our team could wish for”.

Gayle Shepherd, Director of People and Technology at the Scottish Event Campus

Kirsten Sinclair, Chief Operating Officer at Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity added: “You simply can’t underestimate what a difference a visit to Santa in his grotto can make to children and families in hospital at this time of year. The generosity of the volunteers from the Scottish Event Campus has been absolutely incredible once again this year, and we’re so grateful for everything that they do to bring the magic of Christmas to the hospital.”

The SEC looks set to bring festive cheer to the charity again next year, with the grotto making its annual return for the fifth time.
