On Thursday Genuine Solutions staff visited the charity’s Christmas Grotto at their offices in Kingston, where Santa will distribute their gifts to the children who will visit him over the coming weeks.

Director of Marketing at Genuine Solutions in Surbiton, Trish Macrae, said: “We think Momentum children’s charity is such a wonderful local cause, supporting families who are going through the toughest of times. We wanted to be a part of making Christmas magical for many children, who otherwise may not get to visit Santa.”

Momentum’s co-founder Bianca Effemey said: “Some of the children we support are too ill to visit a public Santa’s Grotto. Having our own special grotto here at the charity means they can still enjoy the magic of Christmas by visiting Santa and receiving a special gift. We are enormously grateful to Genuine Solutions for their kind donations.”
